Tie-up with Mitsubishi to bring BHEL Rs 1,500 crore orders

BHEL expects to garner Rs 1,500 crore of additional business out of its recently signed technology tie-up with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. BHEL and Mitsubishi has signed the deal under which the Japanese company will give BHEL the technology for removing the harmful sulphurous compounds from the gases that escape out of thermal power plants. At present, the authorities are okay as long as the gases are let out sufficiently high into the atmosphere. But in future, the norms are likely to become tougher. The fact that more and more of the upcoming thermal power plants in India will use imported coals, given the difficulty in securing indigenous coals is likely to become an issue here, as imported coals are typically of high sulphur content. Therefore, power projects will be expected to de-sulphurise the flue gases before letting them out into the atmosphere. According to TN Veeraraghavan, Executive Director, BHEL's Ranipet unit, 660 MW super critical power plant will need to spend Rs 300 crore on flue gas desulphurisation (FGD).
