Bharat Heavy Elec­tri­cals lim­ited (BHEL) is for­ay­ing into ebus man­u­fac­ture, claim in­dus­try sources. They men­tion that BHEL has de­cided to seek tech­nol­ogy sup­port from NIT for the man­u­fac­ture of ebuses. Keen to roll out the first ebus by mid-next year, sources claim, the com­pany has al­ready started equip­ping it­self with fa­cil­i­ties. Said to have signed a Me­moran­dum of Agree­ment (MoA) for award­ing five con­sul­tancy projects with a to­tal value of Rs.1.2 crore, BHEL will be pro­vided a com­plete dig­i­tal so­lu­tion for the man­u­fac­ture of the ebus by NIT with the help of its sta­teof-the-art Siemens cen­tre. Look­ing at set­ting a full-fledged man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­ity within the next two years to en­sure that it is able to roll out an ebus by mid­next year, the com­pany could im­port some of the vi­tal ve­hi­cle com­po­nents. The de­sign­ing of the as­sem­bly line would be done with out sourced com­po­nents be­fore a full en­try into it, sources men­tion.
