New Delhi, July 21: Against stiff competition, Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has secured a prestigious order for erection work of reactor side equipment of 2×1000 MWe (Units 3&4) Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project in Tamil Nadu, being set up under foreign cooperation (Russia).

Valued at Rs.486 Crore, the order has been placed on BHEL by Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL).

Significantly, for the same project, BHEL had earlier secured an order for erection work of Turbine Generator (TG) island. BHEL has also successfully executed the erection work of TG island for Units 1&2 at Kudankulam.

Notably, this is the first time BHEL is lending its capabilities for erection of reactor side equipment manufactured by another supplier. With this, the company has expanded its footprint in the nuclear sector.
