BHEL bags NPCIL order for erection of Kudankulam Units 3 & 4

The public sector Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) today said it had secured an order for the erection work of the upcoming 2x1000 MWe Turbine Generator (TG) island units 3 & 4 at the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project in Tamil Nadu, which is being set up with Russian cooperation.
A press release from the company said it had bagged the prestigious order against stiff competition.
Valued at over Rs. 440 crore, the order has been placed on BHEL by Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL). For the same project, BHEL has also emerged as the lowest bidder for erection of the Reactor side equipment, the release said.
Earlier, BHEL had successfully executed the erection work of TG island for Units 1&2 at Kudankulam, showcasing its capability in efficiently erecting equipment designed and manufactured by other suppliers.
BHEL is an established EPC leader for both thermal and nuclear power projects. As many as 12 out of 18 operating Pressurized Heavy Water Reactors (PHWRs) in the country are equipped with BHEL-supplied steam turbine generator sets, accounting for 74% of the installed capacity. 
BHEL is also currently executing turbine generator packages for four units of 700 MWe, two units each at Kakrapara and Rawatbhata, the release added.
