The state-owned heavy electricals major has received the order from the country's largest power producer NTPC for supply of 2x800 MW steam generators (boilers) with super critical parameters for the project at Darlipali in Odisha.
In a statement issued today, BHEL said the contract, valued at nearly Rs 3,000 crore, has been won in the face of stiff international competition.
"With this order, BHEL has taken its tally of super critical boilers of 660 MW, 700 MW and 800 MW ratings to 32 sets, cementing its leadership position in super critical technology," it said.
The scope of work includes design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection, testing and commissioning of the steam generators and auxiliaries.
"The key equipment for the contract will be manufactured at BHEL's Trichy, Ranipet, Bhopal, Hyderabad and Bangalore plants," the statement added.
