AREVA’s Transmission and Distribution (T&D) division in India, has been awarded two contracts for Extra High Voltage turnkey projects at the Moga (Punjab) and Bhiwani (Haryana) plants by Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (PGCIL)1.
The two orders, with a combined value of approximately €40 million, are for the supply and installation of 765/400 kV Air-insulated Substations (AIS) for Grid-II and Northern Grid-III, which 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.
