State-owned BHEL today announced the commissioning of all the 3 supercritical units of the 1980 MW coal-based Lalitpur Super Thermal Power Project in Uttar Pradesh within a span of just 85 days.

Located in Lalitpur, Bundelkhand district, the 3×660 MW Lalitpur STPP has been developed by Lalitpur Power Generation Company Ltd, promoted by the Bajaj Hindusthan group.

“This has been achieved as a result of enhanced focus on project execution by way of innovative erection techniques and meticulous project management,” the company said in statement.

The main plant package contract of this 1980 MW power plant is being executed by BHEL.

Significantly, all the three units have been synchronized by BHEL three to four months ahead of the schedule agreed between LPGCL and BHEL.

This was made possible by compressing the erection and commissioning cycle, by the joint efforts of BHEL and LPGCL.

Within a year, BHEL has commissioned 4 supercritical sets of 660 MW each in UP, significantly improving power availability in the state.

Supercritical units are more efficient, consume less coal and are eco-friendly. In addition, two units of 500 MW each at Anpara were also commissioned during 2015-16.
