Against stiff competition, BHEL has secured a prestigious order for the erection work of the upcoming 2x1000 MWe Turbine Generator island Units 3&4 at Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project in Tamil Nadu being set up with foreign cooperation (Russia). Valued at over INR 440 Crore, the order has been placed on BHEL by Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited. Significantly, for the same project, BHEL has also emerged as the lowest bidder for erection of the Reactor side equipment. Earlier, BHEL has successfully executed the erection work of TG island for Units 1&2 at Kudankulam, showcasing its capability in efficiently erecting equipment designed and manufactured by other suppliers. BHEL is an established EPC leader for both thermal and nuclear power projects. 12 out of 18 operating Pressurized Heavy Water Reactors in the country are equipped with BHEL-supplied steam turbine generator sets, accounting for 74% of the installed capacity.

BHEL is also currently executing turbine generator packages for 4 units of 700 MWe, 2 units each at Kakrapar and Rawatbhata.
