Chinese import may hit BHEL's solar plan

Bharat Heavy Electricals' (BHEL) Rs 2,000 crore investment plan for manufacturing solar equipment might become unviable if measures against dumping of Chinese items in the sector are not in place, according to sources.

A source said that the company is planning to put up an investment worth Rs 2,000 crore in this (solar power) segment for manufacturing of silicon wafer, solar cell and solar module, the source said.

But then, this investment will be viable only if there is a minimum offtake which is guaranteed by the Indian industry and countervailing measures against dumping from China, the source said.

The domestic solar equipment industry is grappling with tough market conditions, mainly on account of cheaper imports from China that are adversely impacting local players. Dumping of cheaper Chinese gear is hurting existing players in the solar equipment manufacturing space, the sources said.
