The new 765kV and 400kV substations near Akola, Koradi and Tiroda in the Indian state of Maharashtra will transmit power from generation hubs to major centers.

ABB power systems division head Peter Leupp said that this order supports the development of 765kV power infrastructure in India, enhancing transmission capacity and efficiency to help meet the growing demand for power.

"These substations will also strengthen grid reliability and improve power stability in the region," Leupp said.

ABB is responsible for the design, engineering, supply and commissioning of the air-insulated switchgear substations.

The switchyards will also be equipped with IEC 61850 compliant automation, control and protection solutions, which enable the development and integration of intelligent power networks.
