The Rs 3,100 crore Mettur power project is BGR’s first large EPC contract. The company has already achieved significant milestones, with drum lifting (February) and condenser fabrication (2010) completed as per schedule.

This eliminates the risk of delayed execution to a large extent. Moreover, BGR has already started working towards the transmission network. This ensures revenue visibility in the next two years. The joint venture with Hitachi assures superior quality of equipment for the future projects. BGR’s order pipeline is very strong, though it expects order inflows only from September 2010.
