ANNEXURE IV TO THE DIRECTORS REPORT
Conservation of Energy
Energy Management is an important thrust area in BHEL. Energy Cost as a percentage ofGross Turnover, net of excise, for the financial year 2010-11 was 0.92% as against 0.99%in the previous year.
Following main activities were performed during the financial year:
"Tips on ENCON (Energy Conservation) in English" were published inPratibimb (Newsletter of Corporate Office). "Tips on ENCON in Hindi" werepublished in Arunima (Rajbhasha Patrika of Corporate Office). These tips (Hindi &English) were hosted on Corporate Energy Management website and also on Energy Managementwebsite of units for awareness generation of employees.
National Energy Conservation Day is celebrated every year in India. The week(14-21 December, 2010) was celebrated across the company and ENCON activities wereorganized for awareness generation of employees.
Incandescent lamp/ bulbs were replaced with energy efficient lamps.
Computers (PC/ Laptop) were set up for energy saving mode to reduce energyconsumption.
Energy Audit was conducted at HEEP-Haridwar, CFFP-Haridwar, EDN-Bangalore,HERP-Varanasi and SSTP-Tiruchy. Unit-wise following OFIs (Opportunities for Improvements)have been implemented:
Fixed Mode reactive compensation (in form of HT Capacitor Banks on both11KV incomers) was incorporated to improve power factor.
Compressor No. 3 being operated at recommended operating pressure.
Leakage points found large in number in Block-1 and Block-3 were beingmonitored regularly for the leakages and the leakage points plugged.
CFFP-Hardwar: Energy Efficient Lights installed in place of Conventional Lights.
HERP-Varanasi: Existing 36W Tube replaced with 28W T-5 Tube having electronicchoke.
Capacitors banks installed for management of power factor.
4th DG set was removed from operations and the three DG Setused using synchronization technology for meeting requirement.
The energy audit was conducted at SSTP-Trichy in last week of March 2011.
The activities to implement the remaining OFIs were in different stages of approval/tendering/ procurement.
