NEW DELHI: India's power equipment major Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) has commissioned a 70MW gas turbine based power unit in the Sultanate of Oman.

"This is a significant development as this is the first advanced class gas turbine to be exported from India," BHEL said in a statement Thursday.

The unit was commissioned for Petroleum Development Oman -- a joint venture of the Oman government, Shell International, TOTAL and Partex -- at its Qarn Alam project, located about 400 km from Muscat.

State-owned BHEL is currently in the process of installing a second unit of the same rating at the 140MW gas turbine based power project awarded by Petroleum Development Oman on turnkey basis.

The 2.67 billion turnkey project envisages supply, installation and civil construction of two advanced class gas turbines of 70MW each on an engineering, procurement and commissioning basis.

The project is scheduled for completion by June 2004.

BHEL has so far completed four power projects in Oman and is in the race for other projects as well.
