Siemens bags Rs 570 cr order from Power Grid Corporation

As per the contract, Siemens will be responsible for supply and installation of four 400 kV Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM) solutions

Siemens Ltd has won an order worth approximately Rs 570 crore to supply static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) solutions to Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd (PGCIL). The scope of the order includes design, engineering, supply, civil, installation, testing and commissioning of STATCOMs at four substation locations of PGCIL: Ranchi, Rourkela, Kishenganj and Jeypore across the states of Bihar, Jharkhand and Odisha.

Siemens’ technology will result in the installation of one of the world’s largest STATCOM projects at 400 kV level with a dynamic swing range of 2000 MVAr and 1250 MVAr mechanically switched components. The 400 kV STATCOMs are being manufactured at Siemens’ manufacturing plant at Goa. With fast response time of STATCOM controls, power consumers will be benefitted in the form of constant grid voltage and frequency leading to availability of uninterrupted quality power.

“This is the first STATCOM order for Siemens Ltd and is the latest chapter in the long and successful journey of flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS) in India. Siemens Ltd, together with PGCIL, has always been trendsetters in India for FACTS. It started in 2003 when Siemens delivered several fixed series capacitors (FSC). The first thyristor controlled series capacitor (TCSC) in India followed in 2004. And the largest Indian static var compensator (SVC) project started in 2014 with Siemens. Together with this new large-scale STATCOM project, Siemens is proving its technological leadership, execution capabilities and clear commitment to the Indian market,” said Siemens in a press release.
