Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has bagged order for setting up a 50 MW Solar Photovoltaic (SPV) Power Plant at Mandsaur in Madhya Pradesh on Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) basis.

The order valued at Rs.282 Crore, has been placed on BHEL by NTPC Limited. The project is scheduled for completion in twelve months.

Early this year, BHEL bagged another EPC order from NTPC under domestic competitive bidding for setting up a 50 MW Solar Power Plant at Anantapur in Andhra Pradesh, which is currently under execution.

BHEL manufactures solar cells and modules at its Electronics Division unit in Bengaluru, while space-grade solar panels using high efficiency cells and space-grade Battery panels are manufactured at its Electronic Systems Division, also in Bengaluru.

BHEL is one of the few companies whose solar business is backed by a dedicated R&D team at the company’s Amorphous Silicon Solar Cell Plant (ASSCP) in Gurgaon.

State-run power equipment maker offers EPC solutions for both off-grid and grid-interactive solar PV power plants and has set up Solar Plants in various locations in India totaling to about 200 MW including the Lakshadweep Islands for island electrification.
