BHEL commissions a new 270 MW thermal power plant

Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has achieved one more milestone by successfully commissioning another 270 MW coal based thermal power plant in Maharashtra.

The unit was commissioned at RattanIndia Power Limited’s (formerly Indiabulls Power Ltd) upcoming thermal power project located at village Nandgaonpeth in Amravati district of Maharashtra.


This is the third 270 MW unit commissioned by BHEL in Phase-1 of the project. The project is being executed in two phases, each of 1,350 MW.

This in-house engineered 270 MW rating TG set is being held up as as an example of BHEL’s engineering prowess.

BHEL is the largest engineering and manufacturing organisation of its kind in the country. It is also among the world’s few integrated power plant equipment manufacturers with the capability to manufacture the entire range/type of power equipment and also to undertake projects on EPC basis.

The 210/250 MW sets of this rating class, supplied earlier by BHEL, today form the backbone of the Indian power sector and have been performing much above the national average as well as international benchmarks. BHEL has so far contracted 247 sets of this rating class including 31 of 270 MW rating.

It has achieved technological developments at par with the world’s best through a blend of collaborations with global OEMs and in-house developments.

BHEL supplied thermal sets fully meet the performance standards notified by CEA. As per a recent CEA study on the performance of installed power generating sets, BHEL supplied sets have demonstrated a better operating Heat Rate resulting in less coal consumption per unit of power produced.
