More than 600 faulty transformers were replaced in the state in a mega campaign started by UPPCL in a single day.
Max 247 faulty transformers were replaced in districts under Purvanchal Vidyut Vitaran Nigam Limited. A special team of officers has been constituted to oversee the campaign in 26 districts under Purvanchal discom. To do away with the shortage of transformers in Gorakhpur and Basti at least 300 transformers of 16Kva and 10Kva were transported from Lucknow and Agra. The two-day mega campaign started on Monday on the directions of the chief minister Aditya Nath Yogi who said rural areas should be ensured 18-hour power supply and faulty transformers should be replaced in 48-hours. Sources said there are about 1,259 faulty transformers in rural areas. Out of which 684 were replaced in 24-hours. As many as 193 faulty transformers were replaced under Madhyanchal discom, 180 under Dakshinanchal and 64 under Paschimanchal. As many as 297 transformers of 25Kva were replaced, 135 of 83 Kva, 105 of 10Kva, 96 of 100Kva, 28 of 16Kva, 16 of 250Kva, six of 400Kva and one of 160Kva.

Electrical equipment industry grew by 4.25% in 2016-17

The electrical and industrial electronics industry grew 4.25% in the last FY, the IEEMA said last month. It said policy changes and various initiatives undertaken by the industry and govt are eventually showing signs of revival for the sector. The industry exported Rs 35,276 Cr worth of electrical equipment from Apr-Feb in the last FY compared to Rs 38,580 crore during FY16.” The growth in exports is helping the industry to grow especially in power transformer and high voltage switchgear products, energy meters and cables,” IEEMA said. The industry association further said the major drivers in this growth are low voltage switchgear which has registered a healthy growth of 22% due to revival in growth of realty, infrastructure and other manufacturing industries. However, demand of distribution transformers and energy meters have declined by 12% and 10% respectively due to poor off-take from utilities because of delay in finalisation of orders under government schemes like rural electrification and IPDS. IEEMA said the growth in power transformer and high voltage switchgear can be seen due to domestic orders arising from new substation additions especially for above 220 KV.

ABB To Deliver Smart Technology To B'lore, Kochi Metro

ABB is providing the technology for reliable power supply and distribution in India’s newest metro being inaugurated in Kochi on June 17th. The 13km long Kochi metro stretch has a wide range of ABB solutions with environment friendly features, optimizing space and ensuring safety of people and equipment. The north-south corridor of Bengaluru metro, also being inaugurated on the same day, is the part of the second longest metro network in the country after New Delhi. ABB has provided turnkey solutions for this network from electrification to future-ready remote monitoring system for trains of the network. Globally used third rail DC traction technology, which enhances efficiency and reliability in the longer run has also been deployed in this project by ABB.  Kochi, one of the 100 smart cities assigned by the government is the first tier 2 city to receive a metro project in the country. The ABB solutions include medium and low voltage protection and control systems. Also includes switchgears, dry-type transformers for power supply and distribution to the stations, coaches and modular distribution switchgear panels for lighting requirements. ABB’s world-class vacuum breaker technology for air insulated switchgears will provide power reliability while enhancing equipment and personnel safety and ease of maintenance. The gas insulated ones have optimized the substation footprint thus saving precious land in the metro project. ABB dry type transformers installed at the specially designed metro stations, have a high level of safety and reliability, ensuring a safe commute for passengers.
