BHEL bags order worth Rs 108 billion from NPCIL

Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has bagged an order worth Rs 108 billion from Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL).

The largest ever order is for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of turbine island for six units of 700 Mwe. The six orders, received on August 30, 2021, include the setting up of four units of 700 MWe at Gorakhpur, Haryana, and two units of 700 MWe at Kaiga, Karnataka. In July 2021, BHEL had bagged another order from NPCIL worth Rs 14.05 billion for the supply of 12 nuclear steam generators under NPCIL’s Fleet Mode procurement programme. It entailed the supply of 12 steam generators for India’s indigenously-developed 700 MWe Pressurised Heavy Water Reactors (PHWRs) to be set up at four different locations. Nearly 75 per cent of PHWR-based nuclear power plants in India are equipped with BHEL-supplied turbine and generator sets.
