Winning the contract, the order has been added to the list of various capacity SPV-based power projects. Currently, including the recent order, BHEL is involved in developing power plant projects with total capacity of 16 MW. BHEL produces these SPV modules at its facility located at Bangalore.
The solar cell and modules produced by the state-run company is also sent across countries like Germany, Australia and Italy.
Besides, KPCL contract, BHEL has also won a contract order of Rs 5,450-crore from Bajaj Hindustan Delhi. As per the contract, BHEL has signed an agreement to deliver a 3 x 660-MW thermal power plant at Lalitpur in Uttar Pradesh. It further includes the erection and commissioning of the plant.
However, unlike the KPCL contract, the work for the Bajaj Hindustan Contract is divided amongst its various units. The designing and manufacturing of the six 660 MW thermal power plant is handed to its Tiruchi Unit, while the Ranipet unit would be responsible for supply of boiler auxiliaries. The Bangalore unit would handle the electronic and instrumentation part, where as the erection and commissioning would be taken care by BHEL North Sector.
