BHEL begins civil works at 660-MW Sagardighi power plant in West Bengal
Bharat Heavy Electricals (BHEL) has commenced civil works at the 660-MW Sagardighi supercritical thermal power project in West Bengal. Following the strategic completion of pre-engineering activities for the project beforehand, ground breaking has begun on zero date itself. This is a major achievement as conventionally it takes a few months after the zero date to initiate civil works on-site.Valued at about Rs.35 bn, the turnkey order for Sagardighi Thermal Power Project Extension Unit-5 was won by BHEL amid stiff international competitive bidding.
