Areva awarded Indian Extra High Voltage projects

AREVA has been awarded two contracts worth US$54.3 million for Extra High Voltage turnkey projects in India.

These turnkey projects will be installed at the Power Grid Corporation of India Limited's Moga, Punjab and Bhiwani, Haryana plants.

The two orders, with a combined value of approximately US$54.3 million, are for the supply and installation of 765/400 kV Air-insulated Substations (AIS) for Grid-II and Northern Grid-III.

These will enable PGCIL to cater for the increasing energy load requirements in the region. AREVA T&D will also provide 765 kV circuit breakers and substation automation systems as part of the project.

Both plants are scheduled for commissioning by the end of Q1, 2012.

"We are proud to work together with Power Grid in its endeavors to develop Extra and Ultra High Voltage transmission networks in India. These two 765 kV orders for Moga and Bhiwani demonstrate AREVA T&D’s expertise and leadership in the Extra High Voltage segment," said Philippe Guillemot, AREVA T&D Chairman and CEO.
