TTDI wins Orders for UHV Transformers Package and GIS
Toshiba Transmission & Distribution Systems (India) Pvt. Ltd. (TTDI) has bagged an order from Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (PGCIL) for UHV transformers package on turnkey basis. The 7 units of 765 kV transformers with a capacity of 500 MVA will be manufactured at TTDI´s facility in Hyderabad, and will be delivered for installation at PGCIL´s Cuddapah sub-station in Andhra Pradesh. The sub-station is scheduled to commence operation in November 2017.
TTDI was also awarded an EPC contract by Odisha Power Transmission Corporation Limited (OPTCL) to construct 220 kV substation adopting Gas Insulated Switchgears (GIS) on turnkey basis, which is scheduled to commence operation in June 2017. In India, the demand for UHV transformer is being spurred because of its efficiency when carrying massive amounts of electricity from power plant. The demand for GIS, which makes it possible to build smaller power substation, is also expected to increase in urban areas on the background of sky-rocketing property value.
