Toshiba in­tro­duces new prod­uct lines

Electrical Monitor - - NEWS -

os­hiba Trans­mis­sion & Dis­tri­bu­tion Sys­tems (In­dia) Pvt Ltd (TTDI) has an­nounced the com­ple­tion of a $30-mil­lion in­vest­ment at its Hyderabad fa­cil­ity in Te­lan­gana. The com­pany has stepped by pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity for trans­form­ers by 50 per cent, apart from es­tab­lish­ing a new line for pro­duc­tion of “new tech­nol­ogy” switchgear like gas in­su­lated switchgear and solid in­su­lated switchgears. The ex­pan­sion will al­low TTDI to meet grow­ing de­mand in In­dia and glob­ally, a state­ment from TTDI said.

Com­ment­ing on the de­vel­op­ment, Dr. Kat­su­toshi Toda, Chair­man & Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of TTDI said, “Since the foun­da­tion of TTDI, we have al­ways en­deav­ored in in­tro­duc­ing new tech­nol­ogy prod­ucts and so­lu­tions, and im­prov­ing prod­uct qual­ity through tech­nol­ogy trans­fers from Ja­pan. In line with our ‘Make in In­dia’ com­mit­ment, we have

Taug­mented ca­pac­ity of ex­ist­ing lines and com­menced new pro­duc­tion lines with 3-bil­lion Yen in­vest­ment. TTDI will seek to ex­pand its busi­ness through full-scale op­er­a­tions and pro­vide cost-com­pet­i­tive prod­ucts by lo­cal­iz­ing pro­cure­ment, de­sign and man­u­fac­tur­ing within In­dia.”

TTDI cur­rently man­u­fac­tures small, medium and ex­tra high volt­age trans­form­ers. The com­pany will use the new line to start pro­duc­tion of ul­tra high volt­age trans­form­ers up to 1200kV, and will also im­prove man­u­fac­tur­ing and op­er­at­ing ef­fi­ciency of dis­tri­bu­tion trans­form­ers. The new line for gasin­su­lated switchgear will also ac­com­plish the an­tic­i­pated de­mand growth in this prod­uct, es­pe­cially in ur­ban ar­eas, the re­lease noted.

It may be re­called that in De­cem­ber 2013, Toshiba Cor­po­ra­tion Ja­pan ac­quired the busi­ness of power trans­form­ers, dis­tri­bu­tion trans­form­ers and switchgear of Hyderabad-based Vijai Elec­tri­cals Ltd and housed it un­der a new en­tity Toshiba Trans­mis­sion & Dis­tri­bu­tion Sys­tems (In­dia) Pvt Ltd, which is a wholly-owned sub­sidiary of Toshiba Cor­po­ra­tion.
