New Delhi: Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has bagged a Rs.205 crore export order for a Gas Turbine Generating Unit of 126 MW each from the Sultanate of Oman for a power project being set up by Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) at Qarn Alam, nearly 400 kms from Muscat.

For the contract, the Gas Turbines and associated equipment will be manufactured and supplied by BHEL’s Hyderabad plant and the Control System will be manufactured and supplied by BHEL’s Electronics Division, Bangalore.

The order envisages supply, erection supervision and commissioning of the Gas Turbine generating unit. With the present order, BHEL will have 16 Gas Turbine sets installed in Oman alone.

This is the second order secured by BHEL as part of the six-year ‘Price Agreement (Rate Contract) for 126 MW rating Gas Turbine Generator packages’ with PDO, signed in January ’09. The first order was recieved in May ’09 for supply of 2x126 MW Gas Turbine generating units for Amal Power Station.

BHEL-supplied sets today account for over 50% of PDO’s installed generating capacity. BHEL has executed four power projects on EPC basis & three orders for compressor packages for PDO. PDO is majority owned by the Government of Oman with the balance shareholding by Royal Dutch Shell, Partex and Total.

This contract is expected to further enhance BHEL's long-term visibility in the overseas Petroleum Sector for Power Plant equipment, which may pave the way for similar opportunities from the hydrocarbon exploration and production majors worldwide.
