Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd.
has commissioned a 250 MW eco-friendly based on Circulating Fluidized Bed Combustion technology by using lignite as a primary fuel.
The 250MW lignite based unit is the 2nd unit to be commissioned at Bhavnagar Energy Company Ltd., in Gujarat.
The 1st unit of the project was commissioned in the beginning of May 2016. The project is based on Circulating Fluidized Bed Combustion technology aimed to utilise India’s abundant low grade, high-moisture lignite.
Previously in Gujarat, BHEL has completed the 4x125 MW Surat Lignite Power project including the CFBC technology.
The successful commissioning of CFBC technology-based units has strengthened BHEL's capacity in performing a basket of thermal power projects involving the supply of state-of-the-art equipment suitable for Indian conditions.
