Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) on 25 March 2016 announced that it successfully commissioned a 600 MW coal-based thermal power plant in Telangana.

The unit was commissioned at the upcoming 2x600 MW Singareni Thermal Power Project (TPP) located at Jaipur in Adilabad district of Telangana.

The 1200 MW Jaipur Power Plant is being developed by Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL). With the commissioning of this unit, SCCL has now successfully diversified into the power generation business.

SCCL is India's second largest coal mining company and operates 16 opencast and 32 underground mines in 4 districts of Telangana.

For Telangana, it is the second major plant after the formation of the State in June 2014. Earlier, in December 2015, the 600 MW Kakatiya Thermal Power Plant Stage-II was commissioned at Bhoopalapally in Warangal district.

Incidentally, both these thermal plants were commissioned by the BHEL that has a major contribution in Telangana's Power Sector. So far, the company has commissioned power plants totaling 5180 MW in the State.

And, the Telangana Government has already placed orders on BHEL for executing around 6000 MW of thermal power projects in the State on Engineering Procurement Construction (EPC) basis.
