The investments are for modernising and technological upgradation of its plants, which were mostly commissioned in 1963 with Russian technologies. HEC builds equipment primarily for steel, mining and metallurgy sectors. Last fiscal, it clocked a turnover of Rs 725 crore.

“The current outstanding order book stands Rs 1,700 crore,” he added.

Among its contracts under execution now is the $2-million special purpose machine tools supply to Bangladesh Railways.
