BHEL commissions new Andhra thermal power unit
State-run Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) has commissioned a 520-mw coal-based thermal power unit in Andhra Pradesh. The unit has been commissioned at the 2×520 mw Vizag Thermal Power Project of Hinduja National Power Company Limited (HNPCL), Visakhapatnam. The 2×520 mw Vizag thermal power project is being executed by BHEL on engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) basis. The project was severely affected by the Hudhud cyclone in 2014 while it was under construction. The restoration was carried out by BHEL on war-footing and the first unit has been commissioned successfully.
