India's Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has been awarded a contract to outfit the 206-MW Shahpurkandi hydropower project being built in the state of Punjab.

The contract is worth about US$52 million and includes the design, manufacture, supply, installation and commissioning of Shahpurkandi's electromechanical equipment.

BHEL said the project's generating units will be manufactured at its facility in Bhopal, while its plant in Jhansi will supply the transformers. Controls and monitoring systems will be provided by BHEL's Bangalore unit, and erection and commissioning equipment will come from the company's northern region division.

The company said it won the contract following an international tendering process by the project's developer, Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSCPCL).

Shahpurkandi will be located in Punjab's Gurdaspur district downstream from the existing Ranjit Sagar Dam. The project's design includes dual powerhouses -- one with three 33 MW turbines, and the second with three 33 MW turbines and one 8 MW turbine.
