India’s BHEL has won a contract worth more than 40bn rupees ($800m) for setting up a thermal power plant in Andhra Pradesh from Singareni Collieries Company (SCCL), says the state-owned company.

BHEL will set up two 600 MW units for SCCL’s upcoming super thermal power project at Adilabad.

The company’s scope of work envisages design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection, testing and commissioning of steam turbines, generators and boilers, along with controls and instrumentation as well as auxiliaries including associated civil work.

The company has established the capability to deliver 15 GW per year and aims to raise this to 20 GW, according to the Times of India.

BHEL also announced a 38bn rupee order from Dainik Bhaskar Power Ltd last week for setting up a 1320 MW thermal power plant in Madhya Pradesh.
