Power transmission equipment provider Alstom T&D India has won a contract worth INR670m ($11m) from Power Grid Corporation (POWERGRID) to expand and upgrade the energy management system of various control centres in north-east India.

The control centres include the North Eastern Regional Load Despatch Centre (NERLDC) and seven other regional load despatch centres.

As per the contract, Alstom will supply, install, test and commission 87 remote terminal units (RTUs) and nine control centres.

Alstom will also provide e-terraplatform software designed for data analyses to help grid operators take decisions in real-time, and improve grid security.

With the energy management system upgrade, the NERLDC system operator will be able to anticipate abnormalities and prevent costly outcomes, such as a blackout.

Alstom T&D India managing director Rathin Basu said the company’s smart technologies manage about 70% of the power flow in India’s electricity grid.

"Alstom T&D India had previously commissioned three national load despatch centres, three regional load despatch centres and two datacom networks," Basu added.

"This contract demonstrates Alstom’s continued commitment to strengthen the national grid, making it secure, reliable and smart."
