500 MW oil-fired power plant commissioned in Sudan

Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL)  has announced the commissioning of Sudan’s largest power plant.

The power equipment maker has designed, manufactured, supplied and installed the complete oil-fired power plant project (4 units of 125 MW each) including associated civil works.
BHEL has added another feather in its cap by successfully commissioning the 500 MW Kosti Thermal Power Station (TPS) in Sudan. Significantly, Kosti TPS (4x125 MW) is now Sudan’s largest power plant,” BHEL said in a release.

The project uses crude oil from South Sudan as fuel, for which BHEL has designed special boilers. All the major equipment for the project — boilers, steam-turbines, generators, controls & instrumentation (C&I), transformers — have been manufactured in-house.

The company has also constructed a canal from the White Nile River to supply water for the project.

The Kosti plant is BHEL’s largest oil-fired thermal power plant in the overseas market. It is also BHEL’s first crude oil fired thermal power plant in Africa.
