IBEF:  March 23, 2021

On Monday, Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) announced that it has received its first overseas order for a grid-connected solar power project in Mauritius.

BHEL said in a statement that the project will be established on an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) basis at Tamarind Falls, Henrietta (Phase II), Mauritius.

BHEL has achieved another landmark in international business by establishing its first overseas turnkey deal for a grid-connected 8 MWac Solar Photovoltaic (PV) power plant, the company announced.

CEB (Green Energy) Co. Ltd., Mauritius, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Central Electricity Board, Government of Mauritius, awarded the contract to BHEL.

The project was sealed by BHEL through a competitive bidding process and is financed by the Government of India's Line of Credit.

BHEL's Solar Business Division in Bengaluru and International Operations Division in New Delhi will execute the project. It consolidates BHEL's presence in Africa, where it has been engaged for over four decades with electricity generation projects (approximately 2,100 MW) and equipment supplies in 23 African countries.
