Siemens and Sumitomo Electric win order for HVDC link

A consortium of Siemens and Sumitomo Electric Industries Ltd. has been awarded an order from Power Grid Corporation of India, the central transmission utility of India, to supply a high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission system.

The total size of the order won by the consortium is  $520 million, of which the share of Siemens Limited is approximately Rs 1,682 crore. “The grid-augmentation project will go a long way in delivering reliable, uninterrupted power to Kerala. Most of the critical equipment for the project is being sourced from factories in India, renewing our commitment towards Make in India,” said Sunil Mathur, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Siemens Limited. The about 200 km long HVDC connection will be India’s first direct current link using voltage-sourced converter (VSC) technology, which is ideal to be combined with XLPE cable technology. Siemens will be supplying two converter stations with two parallel converters, each rated 1,000 MW, using its VSC HVDC technology while Sumitomo Electric will be responsible for XLPE HVDC cables in the DC circuit. The grid connection is scheduled to go into operation in the first half of 2020.
