(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) India's leading power-project equipment manufacturer, Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL), has achieved one more milestone in the Middle-East region with the commissioning of another gas turbine generating unit in Oman.

''The 126MW Fr-9E gas turbine generator (GTG) has been successfully commissioned at the Qarn Alam 3 power project of Petroleum Development Oman (PDO). This is the second successive project after the successful commissioning of the 2x126 MW Fr-9E PDO Amal GTG project in 2012,'' BHEL said in a statement on its website on Friday.

The gas turbine generator units were engineered, manufactured and supplied by BHEL's Hyderabad plant, while the state-of-the-art control system was supplied by the company's Bangalore works, the company said. These gas turbine generator units have been supported with the required auxiliaries supplied by BHEL.

''Oman is one of the key export territories of BHEL with various benchmark references established by the company. Beginning its success story with its first order in Oman for the Wadi al Jizzi power station project in 1995-96 to the Qarn Alam 3 project in 2014, BHEL has secured and executed 14 major contracts, which include the supply of 16 gas turbine sets in Oman alone in the past nearly two decades,'' the statement said.

BHEL added that these contracts in Oman were received from diverse sectors including petroleum (PDO); utility (Ministry of Housing) and industry (Oman Cement Co), which is a testimony to BHEL's strong presence and acceptability in the Oman market. BHEL supplied sets today account for over 50 per cent of the power generating capacity of PDO.

BHEL's global references spread across 76 countries and include the entire gamut of BHEL's products and systems such as power plants (thermal, gas and hydro), turbines, generators, sub-stations, transformers, motors, photo voltaic modules, oil field equipment and transportation equipment, etc.

The cumulative overseas installed capacity of BHEL manufactured power plants exceeds 10,000MW in 27 countries, the statement added.<
