Tiruchirappalli: Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited's (BHEL) Fluidised Bed Combustion (FBC) and Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) group conducted a one-day Vendor Meet here on Saturday.

Inaugurating the meet, Mr A V Krishnan, Executive Director, BHEL, said that every unit of BHEL was undergoing massive capacity augmentation programme and this meant that the capacity would go up to 15,000 MW at Corporate level.

The Vendor Meet brought together nearly 30 vendors of BHEL supplying four different mechanical and electrical products like non-metallic expansion joints, transmitters, knight gate valves and flow nozzle and orifices. Mr R Chandrasekaran, Additional GM, Materials Management, FBC & HRSG welcomed the gathering.

Mr A V Krishnan urged the vendors to build capacity and capability to grow along with BHEL, further explaining that capacity building meant production and delivery of products on time and that capability building meant bringing in newer technologies.

He expressed confidence that BHEL would complete all the 11th plan power projects assigned to it on time.  Citing the doubling of BHEL’s capacity and capability through continuous investments, Mr Krishnan said that ‘we are sure we will be able to put all these projects into track’.

While growth opportunities were good, he cautioned the vendors of the competition from multinational companies (MNCs).  He said that the private players would have a total capacity of 40,000 MW a year sooner, though it did not mean anything to BHEL in maintaining its position as the market leader.To retain the position, he urged the BHEL’s business partners to focus on the critical area of state-of-the-art technology.

"The global competition had put on us certain pressures which could be overcome by improving the existing and leveraging new technologies to attain optimized solutions," he said, wanting the participants to deliberate on the good alignment of the processes and address the need of the customers.

As the BHEL expected to get bulk order from NTPC for setting up 11 sets of 660 MW and 800 MW sets, for which discussions are almost over, Mr Krishnan said that BHEL was working out on annual requirement which would save on time.  He wanted the vendors also to work with BHEL and arrive at the requirement of BHEL in the next two to three years.

On the thermal, nuclear and gas power generation side, wherein the Tiruchirappalli unit of BHEL is a contributor, he said the unit would soon declare the completion of the second phase of expansion to produce 10,000 MW a year.  Every unit of BHEL was undergoing massive capacity augmentation programme and this meant that the capacity would go up to 15,000 MW at Corporate level.   The third phase expansion, to increase the unit’s production capacity to 15,000 MW and the Corporate’s capacity to 20,000 MW would immediately be taken up to be completed by 2011-12, he said.
