India's engineering major Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) has executed a 168 MW combined cycle power project in Sri Lanka, the first export order for an independent power producer (IPP).

NEW DELHI: "BHEL has achieved a major landmark in the overseas private power plant market segment with the successful synchronization of a 57 MW steam turbine generator at Kelanitissa - the largest IPP developer in the world.

"With this milestone, BHEL is now poised to grab more opportunities in the emerging IPP business in several countries across the world," the state-owned company said in a statement Thursday.

A 123 MW ISO rated BHEL-built gas turbine generator was commissioned earlier at the same project.

The largest private power project in Colombo, it has been set up by AES Kelanitissa (Pvt) Ltd (AKL), a joint venture between the U.S. based global power major AES Corporation and Hayleys Ltd, a diversified Sri Lankan conglomerate. The Asian Development Bank has partly funded the project.

BHEL has been expanding its wings overseas, notching up successes in several countries including China, Oman and Iraq.
