To set up plants on EPC basis

BHEL will be setting up the plants on EPC basis at four locations in the state including 50 MW plant at Ramagundam in Peddapalli district, 39 MW plant at Yellandu, 30 MW plant at Manuguru in Bhadradri Kothagudem district and 10 MW plant at Pegadapally in Jagtial district. With the addition of this order, the solar portfolio of BHEL has increased to over 710 MW.

In June 2018, the state-run company had won two orders, worth more than Rs 1.25 billion, for installing 30 MW of solar PV power plant projects on EPC basis in the sate of Gujarat.

BHEL has created capability in key segments of PV value chain that include PV modules, solar cells and power conditioning systems and units.

Besides solar PV projects, the company provides entire EPC solutions from concept to commissioning for off-grid as well as grid-interactive SPV power projects in several parts of the country, including Andaman & Nicobar Islands and Lakshadweep.

The government-owned entity is also in discussion with several international lithium ion battery manufacturers for setting up a manufacturing plant in the country. The company is expected to have a 20 per cent stake in the manufacturing plant, whereas the other partner will have a majority share.
