State-run Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has commissioned a 101 MW (Mega Watt) gas-based Combined Cycle Power Plant (CCPP) at Monarchak in Tripura. he power plant has been commissioned at Monarchak, 66 km from Agartala city.
The plant was commissioned on basis of Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) based on the order placed by North Eastern Electric Power Corporation Limited (NEEPCO). The gas for the project is being supplied from the fields of Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC). Due to infrastructure constraints in transporting Over Dimensional consignments, multi-modal transportation was used by BHEL for ensuring safe transportation the equipment to the site.
In this project, BHEL’s scope of work included supply of Gas Turbine, Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) and Steam Turbine, Generators and state-of-the-art Controls & Instrumentation (C&I) including plant civil work. State-run Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) will be supplying the gas for the project.
With this, BHEL’s share in supplied sets in the installed power generating capacity of Tripura has gone up to 88 per cent. So far, BHEL has supplied 1,000 MW of generating equipment in the north-eastern state of Tripura. Being a gas-rich state, the major share of the power requirement of Tripura is met through Gas based projects. In the recent past, BHEL has contributed to capacity addition in the state of Tripura by commissioning two sets 363 MW each at the gas-based OTPC Palatana project, totaling to 726 MW.
