Alstom T&D India has delivered the 230kV transmission project worth EUR15m in Myanmar to Power Grid Corporation of India.

Under the deal, Alstom supplied a 220/66/33kV AIS substation for the 230kV transmission project, which connects the 3x40MW Thahtay Chaung hydro power project to the electrical grid.

Alstom T&D India was also responsible for the design, engineering, supply, and commissioning of the substation.

The contract covered supply of associated products, including substation automation systems, power transformers and network management systems, as well as high voltage substation maintenance.

The project is expected to be commissioned in 2015.

Alstom T&D India managing director Rathin Basu said, "Alstom is pleased to support Powergrid’s initiatives in transforming the energy landscape not only in India but also in neighbouring countries like Myanmar."

Alstom said only 25% of the population in Myanmar has access to the national grid, which allows opportunities for development in the fields of power generation, transmission and distribution.

The company has already built the load dispatching systems in Bangladesh and Bhutan, as well as several regional dispatching systems in India.
