Equipment manufacturer Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd. (BHEL) has commissioned the fourth of six 68 MW turbine units at the 412-MW Rampur hydropower plant in India.
The project's first three units were put into commercial operation in May, state-owned developer SJVN Ltd. said, while the remaining pair are in an "advanced stage" of installation.
BHEL was also responsible for providing Rampur's turbines, generators, control and monitoring systems, station auxiliaries, gas insulated switchgear, and other electrical and mechanical equipment.
HydroWorld.com reported that India's Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) approved the project's construction in January 2007.
The run-of-river plant is located on the Satluj River downstream from SJVN's 1,500-MW Nathpa Jhakri in northern Himachal Pradesh.
