BHEL has recently secured an order for executing 900 MW Arun-3 hydroelectric project from SJVN Arun-3 Power Development Company (SAPDC), Nepal.

Once completed, this will be the largest Hydropower project in Nepal. Located in the Sankhuwasabha district the 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.

The 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.

The Rs 536 crore-order envisages design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, erection and commissioning of electro-mechanical equipment involving supply of four vertical francis turbines and generator sets.
 
BHEL’s journey in Nepal started with supply and commissioning of 2x30 MW hydro generating sets for Kulekhani-I Hydro Power Project in 1980.

Recently, BHEL also secured maiden export orders from Benin, Togo, Chile and Estonia, expanding its global footprints to 83 countries.
