About BHEL Jhansi:
By the end of 5th five-year plan, it
was envisaged by the planning commission that the demand for power transformer
would rise in the coming years. Anticipating the country’s requirement BHEL
decided to set up a new plant, which would manufacture power and other types of
transformers in addition to the capacity available in BHEL Bhopal. The Bhopal
plant was engaged in manufacturing transformers of large ratings and Jhansi unit
would concentrate on power transformer upto 50 MVA, 132 KV class and other
transformers like Instrument Transformers, Traction transformers for railway
This unit of Jhansi was established around 14 km from the city on the N.H. No 26 on Jhansi Lalitpur road. It is called second-generation plant of BHEL set up in 1974 at an estimated cost of Rs 16.22 crores inclusive of Rs 2.1 crores for township. Its foundation was laid by late Mrs. Indira Gandhi the prime minister on 9th Jan. 1974. The commercial production of the unit began in 1976-77 with an output of Rs 53 lacs since then there has been no looking back for BHEL Jhansi.
The plant of BHEL is equipped with most modern manufacturing processing and testing facilities for the manufacture of power, special transformer and instrument transformer, Diesel shunting locomotives and AC/DC locomotives. The layout of the plant is well streamlined to enable smooth material flow from the raw material stages to the finished goods. All the feeder bays have been laid perpendicular to the main assembly bay and in each feeder bay raw material smoothly gets converted to sub assemblies, which after inspection are sent to main assembly bay.
The raw material that are produced for manufacture are used only after thorough material testing in the testing lab and with strict quality checks at various stages of productions. This unit of BHEL is basically engaged in the production and manufacturing of various types of transformers and capacities. With the growing competition in the transformer section, in 1985-86 it under took the re-powering of DESL. In 1987-88, BHEL progressed a step further in under taking the production of AC locomotives, and subsequently it started manufacturing AC/DC locomotives also.
