Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL), a state-owned engineering firm, has secured an order from NTPC to establish a 1,600 MW Singrauli Supercritical Thermal Power Plant (STPP) Stage-III. This plant will be adjacent to the 2,000 MW thermal power station (TPS) in Singrauli, Uttar Pradesh. Notably, BHEL originally set up the Singrauli TPS in 1982, which marked NTPC's debut power plant in the state. The firm emphasized the outstanding performance of its earlier installations at Singrauli since commissioning.

Furthermore, BHEL has won a contract through International Competitive Bidding (ICB) to construct the 2x800 MW Singrauli Supercritical Thermal Power Plant (STPP) Stage-III on an Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) basis. Key equipment for this project will be supplied by BHEL's manufacturing units located across Haridwar, Trichy, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Ranipet, and Bhopal.
