  • ABB to provide US900 million link for hydropower superhighway in India

    ABB has been selected by Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd. to deliver an ultrahigh-voltage transmission system, worth about $900 million, to supply hydropower from northeastern India to the city of Agra over a distance of 1,728 kilometers.

    ABB has been chosen to execute the North-East Agra transmission project together with BHEL (Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited), a leading Indian equipment manufacturer.

    BHEL will deliver the remainder of the project, worth more than $1.1 billion in total. The order will be booked on completion of financing requirements.

    The ultrahigh-voltage direct current (UHVDC) link operating at 800 kilovolts (kV) will have a converter capacity of 8,000 MW, the highest ever built. When operating at full capacity, the link will be able to supply enough electricity to serve 90 million people based on average national consumption. Using ultrahigh-voltage minimizes transmission losses and improves efficiency.
