During the year, BHEL-built thermal power generating sets generated an all-time high 549 Billion Units of electricity which was 58.2% of the total thermal power generated in the country.
BHEL also has a widespread overseas footprint in 82 countries across all the six continents with cumulative overseas installed capacity of BHEL manufactured power plants nearing 10,000 MW including Belarus, Bhutan, Egypt, Indonesia, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Oman, Rwanda, Sudan, Tajikistan and UAE. A major highlight of the year was the largest ever export order, valued at US$1.5 billion (Rs.10,000 Crore), for setting up 1,320 MW (2x660 MW) Maitree Super Thermal Power Project in Bangladesh. Significantly, won against stiff international competitive bidding, this is BHELís largest power project order in the international market.
Leveraging its experience of over three decades in Solar PV (SPV), the company is capitalising on emerging opportunities in the segment. During the year, BHEL set a new record in its Solar PV business, by supplying 176 MW of SPV modules in a single year, marking a significant contribution to the nationís green initiatives.
