ABB India brings reliable power supply to the Himalayas
ABB India will upgrade 20 sub-stations in Himachal Pradesh, with the latest control and protection technology to enable future digitalisation. The order, placed by the local state utility, Himachal Pradesh Electricity Board Limited (HPSEBL), supports India’s smart grid vision and GoI’s ambition of providing 24x7 reliable power for all across remote regions.
Sanjeev Sharma, Managing Director, ABB India, said, “The recently launched 180 ABB Ability™ digital solutions for various sectors can increase automation and reliability of power supply for the nation, as we move towards a smarter and greener grid.”
ABB India will deploy its Relion® electronic relays for the protection, control, measurement and supervision of power systems at all 20 sub-stations. Six of the sub-stations will also be equipped with MicroSCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system, which will ensure the optimised control and reliable operation of the substation through seamless integration and connectivity between different devices and systems.
