ABB wins orders for JSW power plantIt is reported that ABB in India has won orders worth INR 295 crore to provide power solutions for JSW Energy for its upcoming 1200 MW thermal power plant in Ratnagiri in Maharashtra.
The orders are for a range of power solutions including, electrical balance of plant, 400kV gas insulated switchgear substation and generator transformers.
Mr Biplab Majumder country manager & MD of ABB India said that "We are proud of our long standing partnership with the JSW Group. With this order we continue to build on this relationship. ABB’s power products and systems will ensure safe and reliable operation of the plant while optimizing energy consumption of the equipment."
ABB’s solutions for the project comprise several leading edge power technologies for improved system efficiency. The modular environmental business opportunities program solution for 300MW generating units will provide optimized and integrated solutions for complete plant electricals including shunt reactors, bus ducts, control and relay panels, MV and LT switchgear, other auxiliary systems and four 20kV generator circuit breakers, thus providing a further boost towards GCB scheme usages by thermal power plants in India.
The 400kV GIS substation will provide substantial space saving due to its compact design. With all live parts enclosed and protected against negative influences the gas insulated switchgear ensures enhanced operational reliability and safety.
ABB’s scope of delivery also includes 20/420 kV generator transformers. ABB’s transformers are designed and manufactured for high reliability, reduced life cycle costs and optimized electrical design for minimized losses.
