During the year, the Company has successfully commissioned the 1 x 600 MW Mettur thermal power plant in Tamil Nadu. The plant has achieved commercial operation and was handed over to the client TANGEDCO for regular commercial operations. Another major milestone for the Company was the successful achievement of commercial operation date for Unit 1 of the 2x660 MW Krishnapatnam Project, which was the first Super Critical BoP project undertaken by the Company. Your Company has achieved commercial operation date (COD) for Unit 1 of the 2 x 600 MW EPC Kalisindh Project and the Unit is currently under commercial operation by the client, RRVUNL.

Air Fin Cooler ("AFC") division has achieved a record growth of turnover in the backdrop of tough market conditions. The division has maintained its market leadership in India with significant orders from Reliance and BPCL. The division is expected to reach the position of a dominant player in international market in the foreseeable future. The Company now lays thrust on high value orders and higher grade of materials of construction. Investments have been made in manpower as well as manufacturing capability and quality systems so that AFC is competent for bigger growth in international markets.

In the year 2014-15, Electrical Project Division ("EPD") has secured despite a competitive environment, 4 Sub-station project contracts from TANTRANSCO. These projects cover installation of EHV switchyard of 63 bays with 2740 MVA of transformation capacity. EPD made substantial completion of supplies for the first unit of Nuclear Power Project of Kakrapar(KAPP) in Gujarat.

Environmental Engineering Division ("EED") has bagged order for supply of Deaerators for 2 x 660 MW for super critical project at Malwa. During the year under review the division manufactured and supplied 13 numbers of Deaerators which includes super critical and nuclear power stations.

The division successfully commissioned two water treatment plants during the year under review.

Oil & Gas Equipment division ("OGED") has signed a co-operation agreement for technical support with AMR Process, Canada. This tie-up, is expected to enable the division to widen its potential.

INDUSTRY ANALYSIS - POWER

The policy initiatives of the Union Government are expected to facilitate resurgence of the power sector's value chain as a whole in the next 5 years, especially in the backdrop of the action plan towards coal production target to 1 Billion MT and 24 x 7 power in the entire country.

Despite the positive indicators of the power sector, the investment climate in power sector in the current year remains bearish. Fuel security issues, funding issues, dire financial situation of many State Discoms, lesser participation of IPPs in the market due to macro issues pose as road blocks to the power industry. The GDP growth at just over 6%, low per capita electricity consumption, downward spiraling prices of crude in the last 3 quarters would augur well for development of the economy.

With fewer projects getting off the ground, the problem of too few for too many players has arisen and this unfavourable situation forced all players into fierce competition. Investments in the Power and Infrastructure Sector have slowed down to a great extent, except Central/ State Utilities such as NTPC, Department of Atomic Energy, resulting in extreme pressure on prices. The situation is expected to improve when investments in major infrastructure projects take-off in the coming years.

FUTURE OUTLOOK

India's demand for Electricity is expected to take a sharp leap upwards with "Make in India" programme of the Government of India gaining momentum. Your Company envisages opportunities for EPC/BoP projects for combined capacity of around 30,000 MW over the next 3 years. Your Company is well placed to secure a significant market share in these prospects. The completion of first and second stage of coal mines allotment through e-auction to both the Power and Industry Sectors likely to give impetus to many projects which were at planning stage to move forward with implementation of projects.

The water market especially on the municipal and urban sector are growing at an exponential pace and since water is fast becoming a scarce commodity, the business to treat waste water is gaining critical importance. Having gained the requisite experience in primary and secondary treatment of water, your Company now making efforts to leap into the waste water treatment business in a big way by associating with international leaders in respective field of specialization. Central power PSUs viz., NTPC and NLC and several State Gencos are now moving towards BTG and BoP method of contracting. Your Company will continue to leverage its capability and value proposition in BoP contracting and will extend this proposition to all customers who are following the BoP contractual methodology.

India is also set to triple its Nuclear Power Project generation capacity in the next decade. Prospects for capacity addition of 2800 MW are on the horizon and scope of work for Balance of Plant (BoP) and construction are likely to be available. Nuclear Power Projects for capacity addition of 3400 MW have witnessed the initial ground- breaking ceremonies and civil works are now being awarded. The tendering processes for downstream activities are slated to commence in FY 2015-16 for 3400 MW. This provides another opportunity for EPD given its proven credentials in this segment.

Considering the slowdown in the Indian power sector, the Company has identified Bangladesh, Indonesia and Africa as potential markets and is now bidding for contracts. Your Company will utilize the next 12-18 months to augment and address international markets for Oil & Gas for supply of gas processing equipment & systems, EPC power projects in South East Asia, Middle East and CIS countries. Your company has given thrust to high "Health, Safety and Environment" Standards, high quality, superior engineering so as to sustain the confidence of international clients. AFC and OGED are focusing on domestic and international markets with emphasize on Middle East, East Europe and South East Asia and to achieve greater penetration forging alliances for technical and sales support services.

Your Company's in depth expertise in engineering of complex power projects gives confidence to undertake projects in water, oil & gas, nuclear power, transmission and distribution, desalination projects, sewage treatment plants and infrastructure projects.

PROGRESS AND STATUS OF JOINT VENTURES

BGR Boilers Private Limited and BGR Turbines Company Private Limited

These joint venture companies with Hitachi were set up in 2010 to carry on the business of design, engineering and manufacture of supercritical steam generators (SG) and supercritical steam turbine and generators (STG) of 660 MW, 800 MW and 1000 MW capacity. During the year under review, these JV companies have not witnessed significant progress in setting up of manufacturing facilities. Until the previous year, these companies have acquired substantial private lands required for manufacturing facilities and also made significant progress towards purchase of capital equipment.

On February 1,2014 the global integration of thermal power businesses of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Limited (MHI) and Hitachi, Ltd. (HL) through a joint venture viz., Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Limited (MHPS) was brought into effect. In the light of this global integration, Hitachi, Ltd. and Hitachi Power Europe GmbH (HPE) have ceased to be Qualified Manufacturers (QM) of steam turbine and generators and steam generators respectively. This, as a consequence, has impacted setting up of manufacturing facilities and carrying on future business.

These developments had also impacted the on-going contracts for supply of SG and STG to NTPC and DVC. NTPC sought to address and remedy certain issues through Novation Agreement whereby MHPS and MHPSE would substitute themselves as technical collaborator, joint venture partner / equity shareholder in these joint venture companies.

Your company asserted its contractual rights under various joint venture contract documents and also initiated certain legal action. Your company also engaged in bilateral negotiations with Hitachi and trilateral discussions with Hitachi and NTPC to find fair and acceptable settlement of contractual issues arose on account of aforesaid global integration.

These efforts remain inconclusive and your company believes that circumstances exist for a way forward.

INDIAN POWER SECTOR SCENARIO

With a production of 1,006 TWh (including captive generation), India is the fifth largest producer and consumer of electricity in the World. Although power generation has grown over 100-fold since independence, demand growth has been even higher due to accelerating economic activity.

The country''s installed power generation capacity has more than doubled to 237.74 GW during the past 10 years and the current thermal installed capacity in the country stands at 163.30 GW. For the 12th Five-Year Plan, a total of 88.5 GW of power capacity addition is targeted, of which 72.3 GW constitutes thermal power. Thus, the total capacity addition targeted was 18,432 MW, while the actual capacity addition achieved till Feb''14 was 12,539 MW.

EPC INDUSTRY ANALYSIS

The EPC companies represent an important cog in the wheel of power capacity addition in the country. Over the past few years, some large EPC companies have witnessed impressive growth in their revenues and order books. However, this growth is not reflected in their bottom line performance.

This slowdown/squeeze in profits can be attributed to multiple causes – time overruns due to regulatory bottlenecks, cost overruns, inflationary pressures, project delays, commodity price fluctuations, aggressive bidding, resource constraints, delayed payments from clients, inability to receive design in time and scope change approvals from clients. All these factors, adversely impacted project cash flows and consequently interest outgo and lower profits. The added debt burden affects overall profitability. Furthermore, companies have been adversely affected by the slowdown in award of projects, execution hurdles and rising interest rates. This has resulted in stretched working capital requirements and has led to an increased debt burden on the balance sheet. In the present scenario, companies face an increasing need to realign their strategies and focus on profitability as against revenue growth.

FUTURE OUTLOOK, THE YEAR AHEAD

Your Company has been able to sustain the ongoing sluggish period in the Power Sector in terms of new order intake and implementation of existing projects. The recent positive economical and policy indicators in the form of fast track approval process for new projects adopted by Government; debt restructuring to rejuvenate the SEB''s, coal allocation for projects, have had favourable effect on the sector and the dividends of the same will be witnessed in the coming years.

PERFORMANCE REVIEW

During the year, your Company successfully bid for a BoP Contract from Odisha Power Generation Corporation Limited and the resulting contract is expected to be received shortly in the current financial year.

Your Company has achieved progress in the implementation of all ongoing EPC and BoP project contracts viz., Kalisindh (2 X 600 MW EPC), Marwa (2 x 500 MW BoP), Mettur (1 X 600 MW EPC), Chandrapur (2 x 500 MW BoP), Nawapara (2 X 300 MW EPC), Krishnapatnam (2 X 660 MW BoP).

In respect of break-through contracts in Super Critical technology space secured through NTPC''s bulk tender process for supply of 6 units of 660 MW steam generators to Solapur (2 X 660), Meja (2 x 660) and DVC-Raghunathpur (2 X 660), your Company is executing engineering works and commenced manufacturing activities in collaboration with BGR Boilers Private Limited and Hitachi Power Europe. Similarly, the contract for supply of 2 x 800 MW Steam Turbine and Generator to Lara project is being executed in collaboration with BGR Boilers Private Limited and Hitachi Japan.

During the year under review, Electrical Project Division has commissioned all 4 units of 33 MW Hydroelectric project for NHPC at Teesta, Siliguri, West Bengal as e-BoP contractor and this is the first hydroelectric project carried out by your Company. The Division has completed over 4750 KM of OPGW stringing under LIVE-LINE conditions on EHV transmission lines rated up to 400 KV which was spread over 10 States of India. This Division is executing e-BoP contract for 4 units of 700 MW Nuclear projects of Nuclear Power Corporation. Your Company has taken steps to qualify for e-BoP projects including EHV switchyards for Ultra Mega Power projects for which tenders are being floated by clients.

Air Fin Cooler division has achieved growth in profit by 38% compared to the previous financial year and this is the second consecutive year to achieve more than 30% growth in profit. Your Company received major orders from IOCL for Paradip Refinery and BPCL, Siemens for NMDC project in Chattisgarh. Your Company supplied equipment to International clients/markets, including GPS, Al-Hassan, Toledo, Dodsal, CCC, SiadMi and AlKhorayef. Your Company has successfully completed IBR Tube Bundles for IOCL - Paradip with shortest lead time of 5 months. Opportunities in Indian market have been very poor as no new refineries came up in the year 2012-13. However, there are signs of improvement with expansion of two major refineries viz., BPCL and Reliance Jamnagar and they are expected to open up good business in the current financial year. Your Company would lay focus on business prospects in new markets like Nigeria, South East Asia and North Africa and repeat orders from clients.

Environment Engineering Division has bagged a prestigious order from Dodsal for 2 x 700 MW Deaerator Package for Khakrapara- NPCIL project. This, when executed, will be the largest Deaerator in India surpassing the earlier largest one supplied by your Company to NPCIL. During FY 2012-13, your Company firmly established itself as a significant market player in Condensate Polishing Units.

Oil & Gas Equipment division posted muted performance due to competition and constraints in bidding for large projects due to lack of pre-qualification. Your Company has adopted strategy to tie-up with global technology majors and bid for large EPC and LSTK projects. The benefits of this market approach will be realized in the years to come.

INDIAN POWER SECTOR SCENARIO

The Policy emphasis laid by the Govt. of India to the power sector in the preceding years, has facilitated setting up of additional power generation capacity in the country. Bulk tenders invited by NTPC for 11 units of 660 MW and 9 units 800 MW Super-critical Steam Generators and Steam Turbine Generators have played a critical role in catalyzing the sector.

Some of the major challenges affecting the Power sector generation capacity addition are:

1. Availability of land

2. Lack of firm commitment on fuel supply and unpredictable pricing of imported fuel (coal/gas)

3. Slow and tedious process of environmental clearances linked with clearance for coal mines

4. Deteriorating financial health of State Power Utilities

There is a significant back log of new power projects which are held up for either grant of fuel linkages or for conversion of assured linkages to firm Fuel Supply Agreements. Some of these projects (without Fuel Supply Agreements) are already under advanced stages of construction. Even many completed projects are awaiting fuel supply to start generation. It is being reported that around 7-8% of the installed base of the country 223 GW is idle because of either lack of fuel (coal and gas) or evacuation challenges. Most of the IPPs on the planning stage which had called for bids have either shelved their plans or have put them on hold due to the reasons mentioned above. The combined effect of all the above created serious short term concerns for the entire power sector and all its stake holders. As an immediate impact the market size for new power projects has shrunk and as a result competition has become very intense impacting margins of contracts for new power projects.

Mounting losses of the State Utility/Discom companies have severely impacted the cash flow of projects under implementation. This also adversely impacts financing of new power projects. The Financial Restructuring Plan implemented by the Central Government in late 2012 is expected to improve financial health of the State Utility/ Discoms and could become harbinger for overall improvement of Power sector.

Despite the huge challenges and shrinking market size, your Company has closed the year with healthy order book of over Rs. 11000 Crores.

FUTURE OUTLOOK, THE YEAR AHEAD

The challenges in Power sector are still persisting. However, considering the fact that power being the most crucial component of economic growth and sustenance the current challenges are expected to be resolved sooner than later. Thermal power projects will constitute almost 2/3rd of the new power projects in the next decade and almost all coal based power projects will be based on super-critical technology. Your Company will continue to play a significant role in its area of strength and in the short term your Company will focus projects which are free of present bottlenecks and is confident of securing large value BoP and equipment contracts and in the near term keep itself agile to the supercritical technology based power projects.

Your Company''s design and Engineering strength and proven execution track record will help your Company to weather the current market conditions and stay nimble footed so as to avail of opportunities when the sector''s fortunes turn around.

In this backdrop, your Company has taken initiatives to explore overseas power project prospects, with a specific emphasis on Middle East markets, where a number of gas power projects are coming up.

The underlying aspects of the slow growth phase bottoming out and promise of latent power demand in the country are the silver lining for the sector and your Company will continue to play a significant role in the development of the power infrastructure of the country.

INDIAN POWER SECTOR SCENARIO

The Indian power sector is making slow but steady progress even with peak shortage of 10.3% during FY 2011 - 12. The growth of power sector is synonymous with the sustenance and the drive to keep up growth momentum of GDP The Government of India, State and Central utilities continue to give greater importance of adopting Super critical technology in all fossil fuel based power plants, with high efficiencies and lower emission. India made a modest beginning in deploying Super critical technology based power equipment of large unit sizes viz., Boilers, Turbine and Generators with increased visible presence only in recent years. In 12th plan period, about 60% of the coal based power projects are of Super critical technology and in 13th plan period all coal based projects are likely to be based on super critical technology.

The increase in variable cost and interest rate has adversely affected the cost of power generation for Central, State utilities & independent power producers and it has in turn laid thrust on more efficient power plants in future to save on cost of fuel. The Integrated Energy Policy envisages coal to be the predominant fuel till 2031 - 32. With Central Electricity Authority directive of blending of 30% of imported coal and coal shortage, has further increased the importance of efficiency of power plants and proven technology products from BTG suppliers, with ability to handle variety of coal combinations. During the year under review, there has been a slow down and delays in award of contracts for large power projects by Central and State utilities and Independent power producers on account of variety of reasons including natural gas availability, coal linkage, abnormal increase in price of imported coal, land acquisition, environmental clearance and poor financial health of State Discoms. These factors adversely affected the economics of power generation, which in turn has drastically reduced the market potential for power plant EPC contractors and equipment manufacturers in the last fiscal year.

Your company's capital goods business service Power and Process sector in India and abroad. These businesses also have witnessed slowdown and delays in capacity addition by industries.

FUTURE OUTLOOK, THE YEAR AHEAD

In Supercritical technology based power projects, many customers are opting for complete range of Engineering, Procurement and Construction ("EPC") route over the multiple package route. The in-house capability to manufacture Super critical BTG have enabled your company to equip with proven, efficient and cost competitive technology solutions to customers. Your company is one of the three Indian EPC companies to manufacture both Super critical boilers and steam turbine generators, which has a distinct advantage in offering a competitive and complete EPC package due to the vast experience in turnkey Balance of Plant. Your company have an added advantage of continuous improvements in in-house engineering standards, augmentation, retention of human resources, adoption of best practices in construction, in-house manufacturing, increased mechanization and augmentation of construction equipment for faster execution.

The Capital goods business segment would continue to lay thrust on domestic and international markets. GIS sub stations, OPGW, LNG terminal, Hydro Carbon sector and export markets would offer significant growth opportunities for these business segment.
