Spurt in number of contracts awarded in June

 

The contracts awarding process was slowed down during April and May due to the model code of conduct imposed by the Election Commission. With the election process getting over in the last week of May 2009, the contract awarding process by the public sector entities resumed.

 

In June, a record number of 67 contracts were awarded. However, as most of them were of smaller size, the aggregate amount of contracts awarded added up to Rs 8,540 crore.

 

Overseas Orders

 

Four of the 67 contracts awarded in June 2009, were foreign contracts bagged by Indian companies. Of this, the largest one was by the Sultanate of Oman. BHEL bagged this contract worth Rs 375 crore for supplying a gas turbine for a power project being set up by Petroleum Development Oman at Amal, Muscat. Of the balance three, KEC International bagged a contract from a Peruvian company for supplying power transmission towers, Kinetic Engineering bagged an order for supplying transmission gears to an European automobile company and Jindal Saw bagged an order for supplying pipes to a West Asian company.

 

Sector-wise Distribution

 

Among the major sectors, the Electricity and Power Distribution together accounted for 38 per cent of both the number of contracts and job work involved therein. In all, 25 contracts aggregating to 3,315 crore were firmed up in these two sectors.

 

In the Electricity sector, the largest order worth Rs 220 crore was bagged by ABB from Tata Projects for supplying critical inputs to its 2x800 MW Krishnapatnam power project.

Areva T&D India bagged a contract from PGCIL valued at Rs 350 crore for supply of four extra high voltage (765kV) substations at Lucknow, Ballia in Uttar Pradesh, and Bina and Satna in Madhya Pradesh. The Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company awarded a contract worth Rs 319 crore to Lanco Infratech for laying transmission and distribution network in the Kolhapur zone of Maharashtra.
