BHEL achieves record project com­mis­sion­ing in H1 of FY16

Electrical Monitor - - SPECIAL STUDY -

of FY16 was com­pa­ra­ble to what was added in the whole of FY15. In ad­di­tion to the do­mes­tic util­ity sets com­mis­sioned or syn­chro­nized, 125 mw of over­seas projects and 330 mw of cap­tive power plants were also com­mis­sioned by BHEL dur­ing this pe­riod.

The good per­for­mance of BHEL with re­spect to project com­mis­sion­ing ac­tu­ally re­flects an ex­traor­di­nar­ily high or­der in­flow in the pe­riod FY08 to FY11. In this pe­riod, the av­er­age or­der in­flow from the power sec­tor stood at a stag­ger­ing ₹ 44,321 crore. Con­sid­er­ing an av­er­age ges­ta­tion pe­riod of 4-5 years for power projects, one can ex­pect that the quan­tum of project com­mis­sion­ing would be higher in the next 3-4 years as well. It must also be men­tioned in the past two years or so, the pace of im­ple­men­ta­tion of power projects had slowed down con­sid­er­ably owing to pol­icy is­sues like ab­sence of coal link­ages, de­lays in se­cur­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal clear­ance, etc.

When the high or­der in­flow of the pe­riod FY08 to FY11 gets com­mis­sioned, there will be a marked slow­down in the quan­tum of projects com­mis­sioned by BHEL. This is be­cause BHEL’s av­er­age or­der in­flow in the power sec­tor dropped dras­ti­cally to ₹ 21,212 crore in the pe­riod FY12 to FY15.
