Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) on 7 August 2015 commissioned 500 MW Unit-13 of Vindhyachal Super Thermal Power Station (STPS), Stage-V of National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC). The project is located in Vindhyanagar in Singrauli district of Madhya Pradesh.

With the commissioning of this unit, BHEL has now commissioned seven sets of 500 MW each aggregating to 3500 MW at Vindhyachal power station, which is the highest by BHEL in a power project.

BHEL involvement in the project comprised of designing, engineering, manufacturing, supply and erection & commissioning of steam generator and steam turbine generator along with associated auxiliaries and state of the art controls and instrumentation.

The equipment for the project was manufactured at BHEL’s Tiruchi, Ranipet, Haridwar, Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Bhopal plants, while the company’s Power Sector - Western Region undertook erection and commissioning of the equipment.

BHEL today manufactures sets of 500 MW rating class, which form the backbone of the Indian power sector. It has already commissioned 76 sets in the country. These sets have been performing much above the national average as well as international benchmarks.
