ABB India to deliver digital substation for one of India’s largest IT parks
ABB India will deliver a 110 kV digital sub-station to Technopark, India’s largest IT park in Kerala, spanning an area of 930,000 square meters. Due to the nature of the industry, the campus is highly dependent on reliable, round the clock power to serve the 350 companies employing more than 50,000 people. Technopark is currently in an expansion mode and is envisioned to become a self-contained township with potential to employ a hundred thousand people working in the fields of IT, biotechnology and nanotechnology, increasing the need for reliable power supplies for commercial and residential consumers. “This will be among the first digital substations in India and supports the country’s vision of smarter grids and cities. It highlights the increasing digitalization of the grid, a key focus area of our next level strategy and reinforces our digital thrust based on our common ABB Ability offering,” said Claudio Facchin, President, ABB Group.
