MINSK. Sept 28 (Interfax) - Belarusian state power company Grodnoenergo, a division of Belenergo, is holding negotiations with Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) in New Delhi on supplies of gas turbine equipment, the Belarusian Energy Ministry reported.
"Grodnoenergo is studying the possibility of implementing new projects with Indian partners. [...] The agenda of the working meeting includes discussion of prospects for cooperation on supplies, service maintenance and repair of gas turbine equipment," the ministry said in a press release.
The companies have already successfully worked together, as BHEL helped overhaul the Grodno CHPP-2, the ministry said.
BHEL delivered and supervised the installation of a 125 MW gas turbine at the power plant in 2012 under a $56 million project that was financed by India's Eximbank. Grodno CHPP-2, which went into operation in 1970, is the largest power plant in Grodno region, with installed capacity of 312.45 MW.
