ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, has won orders worth Rs 141 Cr from Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd to supply 765 kilovolt (kV) ultra-high voltage power transformers for substations in the northern states of Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh.
Three of these ultra-high voltage transformers will be installed at the Meerut substation in the north west of Uttar Pradesh, India’s most populous state, while 14 transformers will be installed in new substations being constructed in Uttarakhand. The new substations will receive power from the Tehri Hydropower Complex in the northwest for distribution across Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh. The enhanced transmission capacity will help address growing demand in the region.
“These transformers will help enhance reliability and efficiency of the grid infrastructure, and in turn contribute to India’s vision of bringing quality power to all,” said Pitamber Shivnani, President Power Products, ABB India. “Robust, stable and scalable solutions are key in ensuring a progressive relationship with our customers as we continue to boost our footprint in India.”
ABB will design, manufacture, test, transport, erect and commission the 765 kiloVolt single-phase auto transformers at the substation sites. The 14 transformers for the greenfield substations in Uttarakhand are rated at 266.7 megavolt ampere (MVA), while the three transformers for the Meerut substation in Uttar Pradesh are 500 megavolt ampere.
