Hitachi ABB Power Grids has won a project worth more than Rs 1 billion from HPCL Rajasthan Refinery Limited (HRRL), a joint venture between state-run Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited and the Government of Rajasthan.
The infrastructure development will help to power its new refinery and petrochemical project in the Barmer district of Rajasthan. With a total processing capacity of nine million metric tons per annum, this project is aimed at producing clean fuels and feedstock for textile, packaging and petroleum industries. Hitachi ABB Power Grids is delivering a 220/66 kV substation to assimilate power from the state grid and deliver it smoothly and efficiently to the Barmer refinery. Gas-insulated switchgear with its compact and low-maintenance design will be installed, enabling the refinery to conserve space.
