Hitachi Energy inaugurates first-of-its-kind transformer components factory in India

Hitachi Energy India Limited has inaugurated its new transformer components factory in Vadodara, Gujarat. Located in its largest manufacturing location in India, this factory will produce dry bushings with a highly reliable technology called resin-impregnated paper. This will be the first manufacturing facility in India producing resin-impregnated paper bushings up to the 400 kV voltage level. This dry technology improves the thermal, electrical and mechanical performance of transformer bushings, making them more resilient and reliable – critical for transformers deployed in the power grid. This facility has the capacity to manufacture up to 1,000 units per annum of resin-impregnated paper bushings ranging from 72.5 kV to 400 kV. The factory will be producing AirRIP® flex bushings, a unique combination of Hitachi Energy’s best practices from pioneering bushing technologies with a modular and flexible design, covering almost every need and design specification with just one product family.
