750 to get jobs in BHEL unit at Thirumayam

Staff Reporter

PUDUKOTTAI: Industrialisation of the backward district of Pudukottai has got a thrust with Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) commencing its Rs.250-crore project for setting up a new manufacturing unit at Olaikudipatti village in Thirumayam Block.

The proposed plant with a production capacity of 25,000 metric tonnes per annum is expected to provide direct employment to 750 persons and indirect employment to 3,000. Economiser coils, re-heater coils, super-heater coils, low temperature super heater coils, and loose tubes for boilers of different capacities will be manufactured at the new unit to foster BHEL’s capacity augmentation programme – to attain 15,000 MW by 2009 and 20,000 MW by 2011.

Home Minister P. Chidambaram, after laying the foundation stone for the project on Sunday, said that the country’s growth could be expedited only through employment generation.

Thanking Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi and Minister of State for Environment and Forests S. Regupathy for bringing the project to fruition, Mr. Chidambaram sought the cooperation of the people and the State Government for making available land for industrialisation.

Mr. Chidambaram was hopeful that over the next few decades, the new BHEL plant would spawn the growth of Olaikudipatti village akin to Tiruverambur in Tiruchi district.

Chairman and Managing Director of BHEL K. Ravi Kumar said the new unit was necessary for enhancing competitiveness through lessening time cycle of product delivery. The BHEL was in the process of fulfilling its part in meeting the requirements of 11th and 12th Five-Year Plan periods. Executive Director of BHEL, Tiruchi V. Ananthakrishnan and Collector Rita Harish Thakkar also spoke.
