"Concerted efforts resulted in the order book to increase by two-and-a-half times to Rs 4,371 crore, compared to Rs 1,744 Crore in the corresponding quarter last year," BHEL Chairman and Managing Director Atul Sobti told PTI.

He said this has been made possible through prudent strategies of accelerated execution, cost control and resource optimization measures.

The next wave of growth is being engineered with a focus on enhancing the order book in diversified as well as conventional areas, coupled with efforts to further enhance the executable order book, he added.

"Prudent strategies of garnering a higher market share in a shrunken and highly competitive business environment have also paid rich dividends and BHEL has a total order book of around Rs 117,000 Crore, at the end of the first quarter of the current fiscal," he said.

BHEL's revenue from the power segment during the quarter under review increased to Rs 4,636.18 crore, from 4,335.63 crore a year ago.

The other industry segment revenue was Rs 1,153.90 crore in the quarter compared to Rs 1,271.39 crore year ago.
