Amidst stiff international competition, BHEL has secured a prestigious order for executing 900 MW Arun-3 Hydroelectric Project from SJVN Arun-3 Power Development Company (SAPDC), Nepal. Notably, once completed, this will be the largest Hydropower project in Nepal. Located in the Sankhuwasabha, district, this project will substantially enhance Nepal’s present installed power capacity and will contribute significantly to Nepal’s vision of utilising its vast hydro potential for accelerated economic development.
This prestigious order is a testimony to BHEL’s proven technological prowess in executing power projects of this magnitude. The order will also provide a fillip to the company’s focus on globalization as a driver for growth.
Valued at Rs 536 crore., the order envisages design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, erection and commissioning of electro-mechanical equipment involving supply of four Vertical Francis Turbines and Generator sets, each rated 225 MW. BHEL has been the flag bearer of Indian engineering across the globe for over four decades. Starting its journey with the first export order from Malaysia in the early seventies, the company has been expanding its references on a sustained basis.
