The key equipment for the project has been manufactured by BHEL at its Haridwar, Trichy, Hyderabad, Ranipet, Bhopal and Bengaluru works, while the construction of the plant was undertaken by the company’s Power Sector - Eastern Region, Kolkata BHEL is India’s largest manufacturer of power generation equipment with an installed base of over 1,85,000 MW of power plant equipment globally.
