China’s DongFang in Kolkata

China’s largest power equipment manufacturer Dongfang Electric (DEC), which is in the process of setting up a service centre in Kolkata, may build a power equipment manufacturing base in India. If plans materialise, this would be DEC’s first manufacturing unit outside China.

With the Indian power sector on a massive expansion mode, the country is facing huge power equipment shortage with Bhel struggling hard to stick to supply schedules.

Looking at this as an opportunity, DEC is keen on setting up base in India. “We would be looking at setting up a power equipment manufacturing unit in India after we have completed the service centre,” said DEC president Wen Shugang told ET.

“We are in the process of setting up a service centre at New Town in Kolkata, after which we will take a decision on the manufacturing base. Nevertheless, the size, investment and location of the unit has not been considered as of now,” he added.

Mr Shugang said: “DEC’s annual manufacturing capacity for thermal power equipment is more than 20,000 mw. Hydro products manufacturing capacity is about 3,500 mw per year.”
