ABB secures $71 million order from SAIL

ABB would supply various products, including switchgear, transformers, cables, fire protection and detection systems

Multinational power and automation technology company ABB said it has secured a $71 million order from Steel Authority of India Ltd (SAIL) for supply of a high-voltage sub-station package to the steel major's Bhilai plant in Chhattisgarh.

"The new high voltage sub-stations will enable the additional power supply needed to support a planned increase in the steel plant's annual production capacity from 5 million to 7 million tonnes," the Swiss entity said in a statement.

ABB would supply various products, including switchgear, transformers, cables, fire protection and detection systems. The company would also install substation automation systems for the project, which is expected to be completed by 2013.

Apart from enhancing power supplies to support increased production, the sub-stations would improve the availability and reliability of electricity supplied to the plant, said Mr Peter Leupp, ABB's Power Systems division head.

"ABB's energy-efficient and environmentally friendly technologies will also facilitate the phase out of ageing, energy-intensive equipment, bringing operational benefits," Mr Leupp noted.

On Friday, ABB ended 5.71% down for Rs750.05 on the Bombay Stock Exchange, while the benchmark Sensex declined 1.22% to 16,162.06.
