Vilasrao Deshmukh Dedicates State-of-the-Art Facility to the Nation

INVC,, Delhi,, As part of its holistic manufacturing capacity expansion and modernisation programme, Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has set up a new state-of-the-art Core and Tank Shop at its Transformer Manufacturing Facility at Jhansi in Uttar Pradesh. With this new shop, the manufacturing capacity for transformers at BHEL’s Jhansi unit has been enhanced from 8,500 MVA to 15,000 MVA per annum. The unit was dedicated to the nation by Sh. Vilasrao Deshmukh, Hon’ble Union Minister for Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises in the presence of Sh. Arun Yadav, Hon’ble Union Minister of State for Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises, Sh. Pradeep Jain Aditya, Hon’ble Union Minister of State for Rural Development and Mr. B.S. Meena, Secretary, Department of Heavy Industry, Sh. B.P. Rao, CMD, BHEL. Saluting the foresight of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the visionary of modern India, for sowing the seeds of this organisation, Sh. Vilasrao Deshmukh expressed his happiness at BHEL’s progress in preparing itself to meet future challenges in the power sector by gearing up for new technologies and building capacities. He said that these steps would enable BHEL to cater to the requirements of power stations with advanced technology that are expected to come up during the 12th five year plan period and beyond. The company has enhanced its power equipment manufacturing capacity to 15,000 MW per annum and is progressing well to further augment it to 20,000 MW by 2012 in line with the requirements of the nation, he added. Sh. Arun Yadav said that the Hon’ble Prime Minister has made his resolve clear by declaring his commitment to energy independence through fast track growth in the power sector. Supply of higher rating power generation and transmission equipment is the need of hour, he added. Over the past five decades, BHEL has powered the Indian Transmission Sector by supplying the entire range of Power Transformers and Shunt Reactors required by the sector. The company has pioneered and played a stellar role in the evolution of Ultra High Voltage (UHV) technology in the country. It is expected that Supercritical Thermal Power Plants of 800 MW and Nuclear Power Plants of 700 MW and above will boost the demand for Transformers manifold in the near future. To equip itself for this anticipated surge in demand for transformers at nearly 1,20,000 MVA per year, BHEL has taken several steps including setting up a new UHV transformer block at its Bhopal plant, in addition to the new facility at Jhansi. With this, the total installed transformer manufacturing capacity of BHEL including its Bhopal and Jhansi plants will go up to a phenomenal 45,000 MVA.
