India-based company Avantha Group unit CG has secured a $105m order to develop and deploy power transformers in Indonesia.
Awarded by state-owned electricity company PT PLN, the order will include power transformers ranging from 30MVA to 500MVA (70/20kV to 500/150kV). The project will cover the site survey, design, manufacturing, transportation, and deployment of the transformers.
New transformers will be mounted across PT PLN’s transmission network, which covers several substations and power plants in Java, Kalimantan, Sumatra, Sulawesi, and the Papua islands of the Indonesian archipelago.
Avantha Group's CG managing director and chief executive officer K. N. Neelkant said: “We thank PT PLN for this significant order, which reaffirms their trust in CG’s manufacturing expertise.
“At CG, we have consistently built on our reputation as a quality provider of indigenously built products that meet both global standards, as well as local conditions.
“Our technological edge makes us well positioned to support utilities in their network strengthening goals and we look forward to many more similar collaborative efforts.”
Being a part of PT PLN’s 35GW Fast Track Programme, the order falls under a project funded by the company to increase the performance of the Indonesian transmission grid. Based on PT PLN's previous successful projects in Indonesia, Avantha Group has been appointed.
CG offers the latest solutions, including electrical products, systems, and services for utilities, power generation, and industries, which address all electrical requirements of the customers.
