Alstom T&D India has won three contracts worth about €33m to deliver transformers and reactors to Powergrid Corporation of India Limited (Power Grid).


Under the contracts, the company will deliver transformers and shunt reactors for 765/400kV substation located at Agra in Uttar Pradesh state and spare units of 765kV transformers and reactors.

Alstom T&D will deliver the products for all the contracts from its factory at Vadodara, Gujarat. They will be part of Eastern and Southern Region strengthening schemes.

After commissioning, the substations at Agra will help in supplying power from the Lalitpur thermal power plant to meet electricity requirement in the northern part of the country.

Alstom T&D India managing director Rathin Basu said: "Alstom Grid is one of the major technology providers in the area of 765kV AC, 800KV HVDC and Automations to Power Grid and thus a strong contributor in its ambitious plan for building a solid national grid.

"Through our world class transformer/reactor facility at Vadodara we continue to offer our customers with reliable and advanced offerings which have a vital role in developing the transmission network of the country."

In May this year, Power Grid awarded a contract worth about €34m to Alstom T&D India for the supply of two gas-insulated substations (GIS).

The two substations, which will be installed at Betul in Madhya Pradesh and Navsari in Gujarat, will feed power to the national grid.
