NEW DELHI: State-owned engineering major Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has secured five contracts worth over 27 billion from the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC).

The contracts are for setting up three power projects with a combined generating capacity of 1,710 MW.

The projects are Sipat Super Thermal Power Project Stage-II (2x500 MW) in Chhattisgarh, Kahalgaon Stage-II Phase-II (1x500 MW) in Bihar and Feroze Gandhi Unchahar Thermal Power Project Stage-III (1x210 MW) in Uttar Pradesh.

Four contracts for the Sipat and Kahalgaon projects were awarded in international competitive bidding, BHEL said Wednesday.

"These contracts will go a long way in augmenting the country's capacity addition programme in the 10th Plan period (from 2002-07)," it said in a statement.

This is the first time that state-owned NTPC has awarded such a large number of contracts to BHEL in one month.

BHEL's scope of work in these contracts includes manufacture, supply, erection, testing and commissioning of steam turbines, generators, boilers and associated auxiliaries.

It is currently executing several projects for NTPC, including the 1,000 MW Kahalgaon project in Bihar, 1,000 MW Vindhyachal project in Madhya Pradesh, 2,000 MW Talcher project in Orissa, 1,000 MW Rihand project in Uttar Pradesh and 500 MW Ramagundam project in Andhra Pradesh.

All the projects are progressing on schedule and are targeted for completion by 2007, BHEL said.
