Power Watch India - - DESPATCHES NATIONAL -

ABB has de­vel­oped, man­u­fac­tured and en­er­gised a 1,200-kilo­volt (kV) ul­tra-high volt­age power trans­former to sup­port In­dia’s plans to build a 1,200 kV trans­mis­sion sys­tem, sup­ple­ment­ing the ex­ist­ing 400 kV and 800 kV trans­mis­sion grids as de­mand for elec­tric­ity in­creases. This 1.2 mil­lion volt trans­former rep­re­sents the high­est al­ter­nat­ing cur­rent volt­age level in the world and is in­stalled at the na­tional test sta­tion at Bina, Mad­hya Pradesh, as part of a col­lab­o­ra­tive ini­tia­tive by Pow­erGrid. The trans­former was man­u­fac­tured and tested at ABB’s fa­cil­ity in Vado­dara. “This is a mile­stone achieve­ment un­der­scor­ing ABB’s rich his­tory and tech­nol­ogy lead­er­ship in In­dia, and our ‘In coun­try for coun­try’ ap­proach,” said Pi­ta­m­ber Shiv­nani, Lo­cal Di­vi­sion Man­ager, ABB Power Grids di­vi­sion in In­dia.
