Hitachi Energy to power India’s largest renewable energy park

Hitachi Energy India Limited has been awarded a contract by NTPC Renewable Energy Limited (NTPC REL) to supply power transformers for their upcoming 4.75 GW renewable energy park, spread over 72,600 hectares in Kutch, Gujarat.

As part of this project, Hitachi Energy will provide ten 315 MVA 400/33/33 kV transformers manufactured at its transformers factory in Vadodara. This will be the largest rating of transformer, used by solar power evacuation so far. The transformers are manufactured using fossil-free electricity in Hitachi Energy’s factory in Maneja. These made-in-India power transformers will enable sustainable energy system for a clean energy transition. This solar energy park is estimated to produce enough electricity to support 8 million people.

Hitachi Energy is advancing the world’s energy system, pioneering innovative solutions needed to integrate renewables at scale. As of today, around one third of green power in India flows through Hitachi Energy technologies, such as transformers. The made-in-India power transformers are critical components in power systems. They pool the generated power from the renewable source and step it up at the pooling station to synchronise and feed into inter-state/intra-state transmission system. Their availability and longevity have a major impact on grid reliability and better voltage control even with intermittent supply while the company’s eco-design transformers enable sustainability requirements.
