State-run Bharat Heavy Electricals on Friday said it has bagged a Rs4,015-crore order from Hindalco Industries for the supply of boilers, turbines and generators for its 900 MW captive power plant in Orissa.
According to the company' statement, it secured the order from Hindalco Industries for the supply and erection of main plant package (boilers, turbines, generators) at its upcoming captive plant (6x150MW) at Aditya Aluminium in Sambalpur district of Orissa.
The order follows a similar order Hindalco recently placed for the main plant package for its captive power plant (6x150 MW) at Mahan Aluminium in Singrauli district of Madhya Pradesh, the company said in a statement.
The equipment for both projects will be manufactured at BHEL's facilities in Trichy, Hyderabad, Bhopal, Bangalore and Ranipet.
The erection at Singrauli would be executed by BHEL's power sector, western region, Nagpur while the Sambalpur project erection would be undertaken by its power sector in the southern region.
BHEL won the order amidst stiff competition from domestic and international companies including Chinese majors.
The order for 12 units of 150 MW sets, is the largest captive power plant order placed by any industry in India. Significantly, this is also the largest order won by BHEL in its industrial business segment.
These captive power plants of 900 MW capacity each at Mahan Aluminium and Aditya Aluminium are key to the expansion plans of Hindalco, which is setting up aluminium smelters of 360,000 tpa each at both these locations.
As a result of increased customer focus and renewed efforts for sustained presence in varied industrial segments, BHEL's industry sector business segment recorded an all time high order inflow of Rs10,254 crore in fiscal 2008-09 - a growth of 30 per cent, in captive power, transportation, power transmission, oil and gas and other industrial segments.
