After conventional ultra mega thermal power projects, India is set to launch similar projects in the non-conventional energy space.

The state-owned ONGC’s repeated dilly-dallying on supplying gas has delayed the state-run NEEPCO’s second biggest thermal power project in northeast India and resulted in huge losses, an official s

Two–and–a–half months after President Pranab Mukherjee dedicated ONGC’s first 726 MW mega power project in Tripura to the nation, commercial generation is yet to begin due to technical snags, an of

Says the solar mission seeks to develop 20,000 Mw by the end of the 13th Five Year Plan

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has asked Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) to not only take lead in solar energy generation but also in the development of solar power technology in India. The government's Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission success had the potential to enhance India's energy security, he said.

The construction work of the solar plant has been awarded to BHEL

Maharatna power utility NTPC Ltd on Wednesday laid the foundation stone of 10 Mw photo voltaic (PV) solar plant at Kaniha, the site of its 3,000 Mw super thermal power station.

Both required fresh clearance as coal availability was an issue

The Expert Appraisal Committee (EAC) of the Union Environment and Forests Ministry has reiterated its recommendation, given three years ago, for granting environmental clearance for the Rs. 8,400-crore Udangudi supercritical thermal power project.

The foundation stone for the new unit was laid at Bhandara on Tuesday by Prithviraj Chavan

State-run BHEL on Tuesday said it will invest Rs 500 crore for setting up a manufacturing facility at Bhandara in Maharashtra. "BHEL is setting up a new Power Equipment Fabrication Plant at Bhandara in Maharashtra. The greenfield unit is being set up by the company at an initial investment of Rs 500 Crore and will provide direct employment to about 700 persons," BHEL said in a statement.

Once commissioned, the plant will add 1,600 Megawatt to the company's portfolio

Following its move to shift its flagship Gadarwara project from Odisha to Madhya Pradesh, power generator NTPC has crossed a major hurdle by securing the environment ministry’s approval for the Rs 11,640-crore power plant. Once commissioned, the project would add 1,600 Mw to the company’s portfolio.
As the ministry’s environment clearance was on the condition that the project be set up as a role model, NTPC has quickly moved to source equipment and fuel for the project.

Coming up with a Project Design Memorandum (PDM) document for setting up and demonstration of 800 MW coal-fired plant with Advanced Ultra Supercritical (AUSC) parameters was a major stride by BHEL Tiruchi in ‘Engineering and Technology’ during 2012-13.

BHEL has submitted to the Central government that the PDM it has prepared in association with National Thermal Power Corporation and Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research is capable of achieving a plant efficiency of 46 per cent, the highest so far in the world.

The Hyderabad unit of Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd is set to commercially launch a solar power driven steam turbine for the solar energy sector.
