Positioned in Kheda district, the project is owned by Gujarat State Electricity Corporation Limited (GSECL). BHEL had earlier set up seven units of 210 MW capacity each at Wanakbori. Power units supplied by BHEL contribute over 86 per cent to the installed capacity of GSECL.

“BHEL has executed the order for setting up the 800 MW coal-based power plant on Engineering, Procurement, Construction (EPC) basis and its scope of work envisaged design, engineering, manufacture, supply, erection and commissioning of the steam turbine-generator, boiler, associated auxiliaries and electricals, Controls & Instrumentation and Electrostatic Precipitators,” the company said in a statement.

It added that the key equipment for the project were manufactured at Haridwar, Trichy, Hyderabad, Ranipet, Bhopal, Bengaluru, Thirumayam and Jhansi factories while the construction of the plant was undertaken by the company's Power Sector - Western Region division in Nagpur.

The manufacturing giant has an installed base of over 185,000 Mw capacity globally. It has so far contracted 58 sets of supercritical boilers and 53 sets of supercritical turbine generators across domestic as well as overseas markets.
