The Indian government-owned company BHEL said that it has commissioned a steam turbine generator (STG) unit at a power plant in Ethiopia. It said it commissioned the first steam turbine generator unit with a capacity of 12 Mega Watt (MW), the company’s first-ever in Africa. The generator is installed and will operate at an undisclosed financial cost at the Finchaa Sugar Factory for the plant’s own use and will supply processed steam and power to the sugar factory and the excess power will be supplied to the Ethiopian Electric Power Corporation (EEPCO). BHEL will supply steam turbine generator units from its Hyderabad plant in India and the control system from its Bangalore works. The civil work, erection and commissioning of the plant has also been executed by BHEL. BHEL, which supplies products and systems for thermal, gas and hydropower plants, has a presence across 75 countries. Currently, the company manufactures equipment to support 20,000 MW of power generation capacity.
