Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has received the new work order for Renovation, Modernisation & Uprating (RM&U) of Chilla Hydro Electric Plant (HEP). The project estimate cost at over INR 2000 Million. The company has bagged the order from Uttarakhand Jal Vidyut Nigam Limited (UJVNL) for RM&U of the 4x36 MW Chilla HEP. The project is located at Pauri Garhwal district of Uttarakhand, the plant comprises four units of 36 MW each, which will be uprated to 39 MW each.
The project units at Chilla HEP have been in operation for more than 35 years and the RM&U of these units will result in upgradation of output capacity, additional generation and efficiency improvement, in addition to leading to better plant availability and life extension of equipment. In the present scenario of resource constraints in power sector, RM&U of existing hydroelectric projects is considered to be the best option, as it is cost effective and requires much lesser time than setting up of greenfield hydro power projects.
The company's scope of work in the order envisages design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, dismantling, erection, testing and commissioning of critical parts of Turbines, Generators, Governors, Controls & Instrumentation, Protection and Balance of Plant (BoP). Major equipment for this contract will be manufactured and supplied by BHEL's plants at Bhopal, Jhansi, Rudrapur & Bengaluru, thereby providing impetus to the Government of India's 'Make in India' initiative. The installation activities on-site will be carried out by the company's Power Sector - Northern Region division, Noida.
