New Delhi: State-owned engineering and manufacturing giant Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) today announced it has installed the first solar electric vehicle (EV) charging station on Delhi-Chandigarh highway.
 
The first in a series of charging station on the entire 250 kilometer stretch was inaugurated by A R Sihag, secretary, Department of Heavy Industry (DHI) in the presence of BHEL Chairman Atul Sobti in Sonepat, Haryana. The project is covered under the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid) & Electric Vehicles in India (FAME) scheme of DHI. 
 
“The establishment of EV chargers at regular intervals over the entire stretch between Delhi and Chandigarh would allay range-anxiety among the EV users and bolster their confidence for inter-city travel. As part of the project, BHEL has also developed a Central Monitoring System (CMS) for EV Chargers with a user-friendly mobile application,” the company said.
 
BHEL’s scope of work in the project includes design, engineering, manufacturing, supply and installation of the EV charging stations along with the CMS. Each station will be equipped with a rooftop solar power plant to supply green energy and EV chargers, it said.
 
The power equipment manufacturer has forayed in the e-mobility business as part of its diversification initiative. It has installed chargers at Udyog Bhawan in New Delhi. As part of the drive, BHEL has forayed into manufacturing of EV chargers, electric buses and related critical components. It has also taken up in-house development of EV motors, propulsion systems and fast chargers.
