Power Projects Siemens to Supply Gear Units to BHEL
Siemens Drive Technologies Division has received a major order for supplying the total demand of large gear units and gear components over the coming three years to Bharat Heavy Electricals (BHEL).
Mumbai/India - Because India's demand for energy is growing rapidly, coal-fired power plants are constantly being built and expanded. The Flender gear units from Siemens are used in vertical mills with an output of 800 and 1000 kW, which are used for coal grinding in the power plants. Due to their rugged design, the powerful and reliable drives are ideal for the harsh ambient conditions in the power plant and permit smooth operation. The value of the order is in the double-digit million range.
