19 July 2021
Godrej & Boyce has won an order worth Rs 468 crore from the Nuclear Power Corporation of India to supply steam generators for the 700 MW pressurised heavy water reactors (PHWR) project. The company's process equipment division will be supplying the generators for the indigenous project and is the biggest order for the division yet.
Steam generators are critical equipment in a nuclear power plant for generating clean (non-fossil) and reliable sources of power for baseload requirements. The generators will be manufactured at the company's facility in Dahej, Gujarat. The Indian PHWRs have been designed at the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) and one reactor is operational at Kakrapar in Gujarat. More reactors are under construction at Kakrapar; Rawatbhata in Rajasthan and Gorakhpur village of Haryana.
