ABB Power Products wins Rs 1.60 billion order from Indian Railways

ABB Power Products and Systems India has won orders worth Rs 1.60 billion from the Chittaranjan Locomotive Works (CLW) and the Central Organization for Rail Electrification (CORE).

Hitachi ABB Power Grids will deliver trackside transformers rated 132 kV to CORE and traction transformers rated 25 kV to CLW. The trackside transformers reduce power voltage from the utility power network to a suitable level before feeding it to the railway catenary conductors. Traction transformers route power from the catenary for essential train functions such as traction, lighting, ventilation, braking, signaling and communication.
