India: BHEL Calls Global OEMs to Set Up Solar and Energy Storage Manufacturing Units in India

Bharat Heavy Electrical Limited (BHEL) has issued an Expression of Interest (EoI) inviting global companies to partner and leverage its facilities and capabilities for setting up a manufacturing base in the country.

The scope of work includes manufacturing and technology partnerships with global original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) who are seeking an opportunity to establish or expand their supply chains or manufacturing base in India. These include the manufacture of various goods, including heavy electrical equipment, process project equipment, and solar value chain.

Some of the possible areas of partnership could be on heavy electrical equipment, project, and transportation equipment, silicon to module solar value chain, and setting up of up to 5 MW capacity of Li-Ion cell manufacturing facility for all types of electric vehicles and energy storage.

BHEL, a central public sector enterprise under the Department of Heavy Industries, has 16 manufacturing facilities spread across the country. It also plans to expand its operations in the solar value chain by taking up polysilicon refining, wafer, and ingot manufacturing.

The company seeks partnerships with global OEMs through a range of cooperation models such as joint ventures, joint manufacturing, technology licensing, contract manufacturing, and know-how transfer arrangement.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has had a major impact on all the economic activities, including manufacturing. “Supply chain disruptions in many sectors have been witnessed, the results of which will become more pronounced in the future,” said  BHEL in the EoI. The government enterprise further added that the result of these disruptions would become more pronounced in the future.
