Power, Transmission, Industry, Transportation (Railway), Renewable Energy, Oil & Gas and Defence with over 180 products offerings to meet the needs of these sectors. Establishment of BHEL in 1964 was a breakthrough for upsurge in India's Heavy Electrical Equipment industry. Consistent performance in a highly competitive environment enabled BHEL attain the coveted 'Maharatna' status in 2013.

          BHEL as a part of Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru's vision was bestowed with the onus to make the country self reliant in manufacturing of heavy electrical equipment. This dream has been more than realised and the contribution in nation building endeavour is going to continue likewise. Today, with 20,000 MW per annum capacity for power plant equipment manufacturing, BHEL's mammoth size of operations is evident from its widespread network of 17 Manufacturing Units, two Repair Units, four Regional Offices, eight Service Centres, eight Overseas Offices, six Joint Ventures, fifteen Regional Marketing Centres and current project execution at more than 150 project sites across India and abroad. The total installed capacity base of BHEL supplied equipment -138 GW in India speaks volumes about the contribution made by BHEL to Indian power sector. BHEL's 57% share in India's total installed capacity and 65% share in the country's total generation from thermal utility sets (coal based) as of March 31, 2014 stand testimony to this. The company has been earning profits continuously since 1971-72 and paying dividends since 1976-77 which is a reflection of company's commendable performance throughout.

           BHEL also has a widespread overseas footprint in 76 countries with cumulative overseas installed capacity of BHEL manufactured power plants nearing 10,000 MW including Malaysia, Oman, Libya, Iraq, the UAE, Bhutan, Egypt and New Zealand.

           The high level of quality & reliability of BHEL products and systems is an outcome of strict adherence to international standards through acquiring and adapting some of the best technologies from leading OEM companies in the world together with technologies developed in our own R&D centres. Most of our manufacturing units and other entities have been accredited to Quality Management Systems (ISO9001:2008), Environmental Management Systems (ISO14001:2004) and Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems (OHSAS18001:2007).
