Image result for bhel trichy independence dayThink-tanks and cross-functional teams in BHEL Tiruchi Complex are working on a war footing towards diversification into new businesses to reduce its dependence on power sector.

As diversification calls for a much more flexible, agile and pro-active approach, resources are being re-organised and re-deployed in line with corporate initiatives aimed at execution, consolidation and simplification, R. Rajamanohar, Executive Director, BHEL, Tiruchi, said in his Independence Day address on Tuesday.

Top goals

Meeting commitments to customers through effective project management, prompt cash collection, cost-effective design, highly-productive work culture, and stringent controls on expenditure constitute the top priorities.

Timely completion of all projects, including the largest-ever export project in Maitree in Bangladesh, is critical to the image of the company, Mr. Rajamanohar said, adding there was steady progress in the initiative to enhance the manufacturing capacity for nuclear steam generators.

The Tiruchi Complex, comprising the High Pressure Boiler Plant and the Seamless Steel Tube Plant in Tiruchi, the Power Plant Piping Unit at Thirumayam and the Piping Centre at Chennai, are fully geared to tap the growing business potential in the nuclear power sector.

They are also eqipped to meet the anticipated huge demand for supply of specialised emission control systems and equipment to enable existing and upcoming coal-based power plants in the country to meet the more stringent emission norms announced by the Government recently.

Plans have also been made for LPG or LNG conversion of existing producer gas plants used for heat treatment, as part of green initiatives.

Development of indigenous technology for the setting up of India’s first power plant based on Advanced Ultra Supercritical technology will be a significant landmark towards more environment-friendly use of coal.

A guard of honour was presented by the BHEL security, NCC, home guards, traffic wardens, Fire Services teams and students of 12 campuses.


Taking the salute, Mr. Rajamanohar honoured employees, who were recepients of Prime Minister's Shram Awards, Vishwakarma Rastriya Puraskar, and Uyarntha Uzhaippalar Virudhu of the State Government.

The company's contribution towards education, basic amenities and skill development of underprivileged members of the society will be stepped up under Corporate Social Responsibility programmes, he said.
