The public sector undertakings Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) and Reliance Energy Limited (REL) on Monday submitted bids for the 1,000/1,200 mw coal-based project proposed at Hisar.

Monday was the last day for submission of the bids.

While BHEL was a new entrant for the project, REL submitted a revised bid for the project whose estimated cost is expected to surpass Rs 4,000 crore.

REL was the sole bidder for the project before the state government decided to extend the date of submission and relaxed commissioning schedule of bids.

The power generating capacity of the plant, expected to be between 1,000 and 1,200 MW would be decided as per the proposal of the successful bidder, sources told FE.
