Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) is shortly going to receive BHEL-manufactured nuclear steam generator which would be installed in NPCIL’s Rajasthan Atomic Power Project (RAPP).

 
BHEL has been catering to the nation's nuclear programme since 1976 by way of design, manufacture, testing and supply of critical nuclear components like reactor headers, steam generators, other heat exchangers and pressure vessels.
 
The first stage of the indigenous nuclear power program of the country has attained maturity with 18 operating pressurised heavy water reactors (PHWR). Twelve PHWRs accounting for 74 per cent of the nuclear power capacity are equipped with BHEL-supplied steam turbine generator sets.
 
BHEL is the only Indian company associated with all the three stages of the Indian Nuclear Power Programme-the first stage PHWR, the second stage fast breeder reactor (FBR) and the third stage advanced heavy water reactor (AHWR) and has been a partner for over four decades in the development of the indigenous nuclear power programme since its inception.
