Hitachi ABB Power Grids Ltd. has received a US$20 million order from TEİAŞ, a transmission system operator (TSO) for electricity in Turkey, to supply power transformers for a grid expansion project that will bring affordable power to remote regions across the country. This project will reduce reliance on unreliable and polluting local energy sources, such as diesel generators, and enable a high-quality and uninterrupted supply of electricity.
This major commitment to installing a modern power system in these remote, rural regions will enable further industrial investments, such as factories and other businesses, providing employment and stimulating the economy.
Hitachi ABB Power Grids' transformer business will supply several 62.5-MVA and 100-MVA, 154-kV power transformers, which are well-suited for this modern system and remote location.
"We are proud to be supplying TEİAŞ with transformers for this massive power grid investment in Turkey," said Bruno Melles, managing director of Hitachi ABB Power Grids' transformer business. "Helping people gain access to reliable grid electricity is essential for a sustainable energy future
