The scope of work includes design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, installation, civil works, testing and commissioning of the complete substations on turnkey basis. PGCIL is installing these substations under the Transmission System associated with Damodar Valley Corporation (DVC) and Maithon Right Bank Projects. DVC and Maithon Right Bank is the hub for power generation in Eastern India with approximate capacity of 25,000MW.
Siemens will supply the high-end technology products such as circuit breakers, current transformers, capacitor voltage transformers, disconnectors, surge arrestors and substation automation (Control and relay panels as well as SCADA system). Both the substations are green field projects of PGCIL which will transmit power from DVC Right Bank and will enhance power reliability of NCR and WR of India thus helping PGCIL to support Government of India’s ambitious goal of ‘Power for All’ by 2012. These projects by PGCIL are a step ahead in their endeavour to transmit bulk power over long distances with substantially reduced transmission losses.
Speaking about the orders, Mr. A.K Dixit, CEO, Energy Sector, Siemens Ltd said, “We are delighted to receive this order from PGCIL. Their confidence in our capability to deliver high quality systems and solutions has resulted in this partnership. We are partnering with our customer to provide energy efficient solutions that involves supply of high-end technology products covering our high-voltage portfolio. The substations will be fully automated and are compact in design which will enable our customers to handle the plant more efficiently.”
Siemens having bagged three major packages of 765kV (Fatehpur, Gaya & Ranchi) in financial year 2009 will be the key player in contributing towards enabling PGCIL in boosting the Power transmission infrastructure of India.
