Al­stom dis­plays new gas-in­su­lated sub­sta­tion

Power Watch India - - DISPATCHES NATIONAL -

Al­stom Grid show­cased a num­ber of tech­nolo­gies and in­no­va­tions at the ELE­CRAMA 2014 - one of the largest trade shows for elec­tri­cal and elec­tron­ics in­dus­try in Asia. Mr Gre­goire Poux-Guil­laume, Pres­i­dent of Al­stom Grid and brand am­bas­sador for ELE­CRAMA 2014, ex­plained: “The trans­mis­sion sec­tor in In­dia is rapidly evolv­ing and re­quires the very lat­est global tech­nolo­gies to be pro­duced lo­cally. The in­dus­try has a lead role to play in driv­ing In­dia’s econ­omy at 9 per cent GDP speed - if not more. In terms of tech­nolo­gies, we all are ready for that great day and the jour­ney to get there is not such a long one. This fo­rum will en­able us to em­brace the de­bate and lead us all to achieve a com­mon goal of get­ting the en­ergy in­fra­struc­ture ready for In­dia’s next chap­ter. ”The com­pany dis­played a wide spec­trum of prod­ucts, sys­tems and ser­vices that im­prove en­ergy ef­fi­ciency and pro­duc­tiv­ity at ev­ery stage of the en­ergy chain – from gen­er­a­tion to end use. In ad­di­tion to its strong port­fo­lio of au­to­ma­tion tech­nolo­gies, Al­stom Grid also show­cased its lat­est gen­er­a­tion of T155 gas-in­su­lated sub­sta­tion (GIS) de­signed to meet the fu­ture chal­lenges of elec­tri­cal net­works up to 420 kV, 63 kA, 5000/6300A.

The T155 sub­sta­tion, it is told, is 40 per cent more com­pact than its pre­vi­ous ver­sion with a re­duced foot­print, and is eas­ier to ac­cess at ground level, eas­ier to trans­port and 30 per cent faster to erect. The re­duced size is mainly due to the sin­gle-cham­ber cir­cuit-breaker that re­quires less en­ergy to op­er­ate.
