Located at Barauni in Begusarai district of Bihar, the project has two segments (units 8&9) of 250 MW each. Unit 9 is also in advanced stages of execution, and is expected to be commissioned shortly, a BHEL statement said.

This project is being set up by BHEL on the ash dyke of old thermal units, which calls for special civil engineering for ground improvements. The utilisation of the unproductive ash dyke for this purpose also addresses the issue of land scarcity.

BHEL shares dropped 0.53 per cent to close at Rs 102.70 on BSE.
