ABB has teamed up with India’s national electricity grid operator, Power Grid Corporation of India, in a mega project worth over $640 million to deliver a transmission link that will have the capacity to bring reliable electricity to more than 80 million people. The Raigarh-Pugalur 800 kV ultra-high voltage direct current system will connect Raigarh in central India to Pugalur in the southern state of Tamil Nadu.
The 1830 km link will be among the longest in the world. The two-way link will integrate thermal and wind energy for transmission of power to high consumption centres located thousands of kilometres away, supporting electricity demands in the south, when wind strength is low, and transmitting clean energy to the north, when there is excess wind power.
