State-run Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) has commissioned the second 500 Mw (megawatt) thermal unit at Marwa Thermal Power Station in Janjgir-Champa district of Chhattisgarh. The first unit of Marwa TPS was also commissioned earlier by BHEL. Marwa TPS has been set up by Chhattisgarh State Power Generation Company (CSPGCL). In Chhattisgarh, BHEL has contributed a total of 12,500 MW to the state’s installed power generation, including central and private sector utilities.
BHEL has been associated with power projects of CSPGCL, from the time when the 120 MW Korba TPS extention-1 was commissioned in March 1976. So far the BHEL has commissioned 11 thermal sets and three hydro sets for the state utility. It has a share of 94% in the installed capacity of CSPGCL.
So let’s discuss some questions related to this post:
1. The BHEL has commissioned 500 Mw Marwa Thermal Power station at which place?
2. Expand the term BHEL and CSPGCL.
