Pune: Avantha Group Company CG, has received an order to provide two 40 MVA power transformers and one 110 kV Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) of 7 bays, to Ukrainian electricity utility Odessa Oblenergo for its Marazlievskaya substation. The company supplies electricity to the city of Odessa in Ukraine and other surrounding areas. The order is valued at 2 million and installation and commissioning of the equipment is expected to be completed by end-2014. CG will undertake the supervision of erection and commissioning of the transformers and switchgear.
CG is one amongst a handful of global companies to design and manufacture an array of power and distribution transformers and reactors. CG is also one of the manufacturers in the power domain with the widest range of Medium to Ultra High Voltage (UHV) switchgear products to meet the requirements of power generation and distribution substations in utilities and industries.
CG was selected as the ideal partner for this project on account of its technical acumen to fully understand and comply with Odessa Oblenergo's specific requirements for the substation, well ahead in the process. The equipment supplied will optimise efficiency, reliability and safety at the substation. This win will help CG gain a foothold in the rapidly growing Eastern European market.
Laurent Demortier, CG's chief executive officer and managing director, said the latest order is a move to expand its footprint in the growing market of Eastern Europe and the company looks forward to strengthening its relationship with Odessa Oblenergo and establishing itself as a partner of choice to supply high-quality, durable power equipment.
