BHEL completes 54 MW captive project in Indonesia

Bharat Heavy Electricals said it has commissioned a 54 MW coal-fired captive power project in Indonesia, calling it “yet another milestone in the South East Asian region.”

BHEL has executed several projects in the region including projects in Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

In Indonesia, the company has earlier successfully executed a 2×30 MW boiler project for PT Makmur Sejahtera Wisesa; and 2×11 MW & 1×15 MW captive power projects for PT Indo Bharat Rayon.

The 3×18 MW power project, located at Sangata, East Kalimantan, Indonesia, has been set up by BHEL for PT Citra Kusuma Perdana (PT CKP) for their coal-mining operations.

BHEL designed, engineered, manufactured and supplied the boiler, turbine & generator (BTG) island and associated auxiliaries along with supervisory services during erection & commissioning, the publicly owned company said.

BHEL today has a presence in 82 countries and has installed nearly 180 GW globally — about half of India’s total power capacity.

Besides power plants, it also works in transmission, transportation, oil & gas, defence & aerospace and water segments.

In the overseas market, BHEL is presently working on several projects, including the 2 x 660 MW Maitree Super Thermal Power Project, Bangladesh.
