Power-plant equipment major Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) has bagged a Rs 2,665-crore order for supply and installation of the main plant package for Dainik Bhaskar Power Ltd's 2x600 megawatt coal-based thermal power project at Baradarha, in Janjgir district of Chhattisgarh.

According to the contract, BHEL would be entrusted with design, engineering, MFR, supply, erection, testing and commissioning of boilers, steam turbines and turbo generators, along with state-of-the-art controls and instrumentations, a company statement said.

BHEL said independent power producers accounted for 90 per cent of the orders it received in 2009-10 for power plant equipment with a total generation capacity of 16,489 Mw.
