New Delhi: State-owned power equipment major Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) on Friday said it has won a Rs 11,700 crore order for setting up a 3x800 MW thermal power plant in Jharkhand.

Located at Patratu in Ramgarh district of Jharkhand, the project will be executed by BHEL on engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) basis, it added.
