BHEL commissions 2nd gas turbine unit in Oman.
State-owned BHEL has commissioned another gas turbine generating unit at a power project in Oman.
'The 126-MW gas turbine generator has been commissioned at Qarn Alam-3 power project of Petroleum Development Oman,' BHEL recently said in a statement.
This is the second successive project after the commissioning of the 2x126 MW Petroleum Development Oman Amal Gas Turbine Generating project in 2012.
The gas turbine generator units were engineered, manufactured and supplied by BHEL's Hyderabad plant, while the control system has been supplied by the company's Bangalore works. These units have been supported with the required auxiliaries supplied by BHEL.
The Sultanate of Oman is one of the key export territories of BHEL. The public sector company has secured and executed 14 major contracts which include the supply of 16 gas turbine sets in Oman alone in the past nearly two decades, the statement said.
BHEL is currently executing various power plant projects in as many as 20 countries for installing 7,000 MW power generating capacity worth over $3 billion.
