CG wins $105 million order from an Indonesian state utility

CG (erstwhile Crompton Greaves) has won a $105 million order from PT PLN, the state-owned electricity company of Indonesia, to manufacture and install power transformers ranging from 30 MVA, 70/20 kV to 500 MVA, 500/150 kV. CG’s power transformers will be installed across PT PLN’s transmission network, spread across multiple substations and power plants in Java, Sumatra, Kalimantan, Sulawesi and the Papua Islands of the Indonesian archipelago. The contract was secured through a competitive open book bidding process, which involves stringent quality checks. The scope of the project includes site survey, design, manufacture, transportation and installation of the transformers. The order falls under a project funded by PT PLN to enhance the performance of the Indonesian transmission grid, which is critical to PLN’s 35 GW Fast Track Programme.
