CG wins 3.5 mn euros onshore wind project in France
Crompton Greaves (CG), a part of the Avantha Group, on July 3 said it has bagged a 3.5 million euros (around Rs 27.3 crore) contract from Nordex and H2air for setting up a wind farm sub-station at the 75 mw Seine Rive Gauche Nord windfarm in France. The scope of the work includes design, engineering, supply, installation and commissioning of the substation. CG will also be responsible for upgrading and building the overall electrical system, it said in a statement.
The company will have to supply two 45 MVA step-up power transformers, medium and high voltage air insulated switchgear (AIS), substation automation system (SAS), buildings and ancillaries.
The substation will help to integrate wind energy and boost power supplies to meet the growing residential demand besides reinforcing the transmission grid and improving reliability, efficiency and power quality, the company said. The project is scheduled for completion by mid 2014.
The company's CEO and Managing Director Laurent Demortier said that this win demonstrates CG's local project management strengths and on and offshore track record besides its cost-efficient approach in offering turnkey grid infrastructure solutions.
