From Power Grid Company of BangladeshABB India has won an order worth around Rs 178 crore, from Power Grid Company of Bangladesh to support the country's power infrastructure expansion and meet its growing electricity needs. As part of the project, ABB India will build two new substations and upgrade two existing substations, all located in the south-eastern parts of Bangladesh. The order was booked in the first quarter of 2017. The design, engineering, system integration and supply of key products will be executed in India, another example of making in India for the world.
The substations will add around 535 megawatts (MW) of transmission capacity - enough to power more than 250,000 households - and contribute to the government's target of providing access to electricity for its population of around 165 million, by 2021.
ABB will build and commission one 132kV/33kV air insulated switchgear substation in Kachua, one 132kV/33kV gas insulated switchgear substation in Kalurghat and upgrade two existing 132kV/33kV AIS substations into GIS substations in the Comilla and Modhunaghat areas.
