ABB India expands Gujarat factory to meet demand for digital substation products, digital systems


ABB India has initiated its escalated digital substation developments and digital systems plant in Vadodara, Gujarat. Located within ABB India’s largest manufacturing lot, this new plant will meet the growing necessity for a wide range of digital substation products and digital results in India and in additional than 50 countries. The manufacturing portfolio includes products like relays, while the results classify from centralized protection and control systems, distribution robotization, to machine transfer systems and bow protection for the electrical disposal network. These products are stationed across multiple diligence from cement, sword, canvas and gas to serviceability ( power distribution companies) and renewable energy systems through OEMs.

This installation manufactures four variants or series of relays, constituting a significant portion of ABB’s portfolio of this product. The manufacturing of relays follows a detailed testing sequence comprising of high voltage test, functional test and heat run test. ABB is one of the first in the assiduity to have automated the entire testing sequence. A special packaging software has been stationed which allows the products to be placed in the packaging bay only after checking the correct sequence of testing. Distribution Robotization systems also enable remote monitoring and control of relays.

“ India is projected to be among the top 3 energy consumers of the world by 2030 and presently is the fifth largest consumer. This exponential increase in demand followed by the blend of diversified and distributed energy sources has increased the demand for quality power outfit manufacturing in India. ABB’s wide portfolio and future- evidence technology has a significant part to play in supporting this growing demand,” said Sanjeev Sharma, country head and MD, ABB India.

“ The electrification of energy grids around the world has increased focus on dependable energy ordering, with connected, digital technologies a crucial enabler for making over power distribution networks. Digitalization can offer new situations of safety, real time control and monitoring of energy inflow, flawless touch, tone- opinion and data processing,” said Ganesh Kothawade, elderly VP, electrification business, ABB India.
