American multinational conglomerate General Electric’s (GE’s) Grid Solutions business has secured a multi-million dollar contract from Indian renewable energy major ReNew Power to develop two 400 kV substations in Karnataka, India.
 
The two substations include - a 400/220 kV air-insulated substation in Koppal district, and a 400 kV gas-insulated substation in Narendra village in the state of Karnataka.
 
Besides, the contract also includes the supply of two 125 MVAR 400 kV reactors for each substation.
 
The contract is part of the Narendra-Koppal transmission scheme and is the company’s third substation project with ReNew Power.
 
The scheme in turn is part of the planned interstate-based evacuation infrastructure that will create 66.5 GW of renewable energy zones in India.
 
Also, the Narendra-Koppal project, involving the evacuation of 2.5 GW from wind energy zones in Karnataka, is part of the first of three phases of the overall project.
 
Commenting on the development, Pitamber Shivnani, Regional Leader for Grid Solutions in South Asia, said “we are delighted by ReNew Power’s continued confidence in our innovative technology, as well as engineering and service capabilities.”
 
“We look forward to helping accelerate the energy transition in India by helping to evacuate more renewable energy from the southwestern part of the country with these substations,” Shivnani added.
 
The company is expected to complete its work in three phases i.e. two in December 2022 and one in August 2023.
 
GE also said in a statement that “all products are being manufactured in India, for India”.
 
“ReNew Power is committed to leading India’s transition away from fossil fuels and meeting the rising demand for energy in a sustainable manner by delivering cleaner and smarter energy choices and thereby reducing India’s carbon footprint. We are delighted to partner with GE Grid Solutions for bringing power efficiently and reliably for our customers through their state-of-the art grid technology,” said Ajay Bhardwaj, President- New Business of ReNew Power.
