Hitachi Energy India wins an HVDC link order from Adani Electricity Mumbai Infra

Hitachi Energy India Limited has won a major order from Adani Electricity Mumbai Infra Limited to provide a high voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission system linking Kudus to Mumbai.

The new HVDC link will supply up to 1,000 MW of electricity, increasing power from outside of the city by almost 50 per cent. The link will strengthen the existing transmission infrastructure and help Adani to ensure a reliable power supply in the region. By utilising Hitachi Energy’s compact HVDC system and 50 kilometers of underground cables rather than overhead lines, almost 2.3 square kilometers of land will be saved.
