Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) said on Tuesday that it has commissioned a 250 megawatts unit at Parichha Thermal Power Station (TPS), in Uttar Pradesh. With this, 6 million units of electricity will be added to the grid every day, said a company statement.
"Two years back, the project had suffered a setback due to an unfortunate incident of the chimney collapsing, which was not in the scope of BHEL. However, to save time, the balance commissioning activities were completed by BHEL with a temporary chimney and the unit was synchronized to grid in February, 2012. Coal firing could be done only after the availability of the permanent chimney" BHEL said.
BHEL’s scope of work in the contract includes manufacture, supply, erection, testing and commissioning of the main plant package along with associated auxiliaries and civil works.
