BHEL bags two orders from Indian Railways

Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has secured two orders from Indian Railways for the development, manufacture and supply of 3-Phase IGBT-based propulsion systems for Electric Locomotives and AC EMUs. The cumulative value of the orders is Rs3,000 million.
The orders are for supplying 40 sets for 1400 HP AC EMUs (Electric Multiple Units) and 30 sets for 6000 HP Electric Locomotives.

In the recent past, across the world, the trend has been to switch over from conventional DC drives to 3-Phase AC drives based on Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT) technology which provides advantages like lesser power losses, better control ability, higher performance and reliability.

Both BHEL and Indian Railways will benefit from this as BHEL will be able to offer products indigenously eliminating dependence on costly imports and ensuring long term sustenance.
