GE Grid Solutions wins order to modernise 39 substations in Nepal

GE Renewable Energy’s Grid Solutions business has been awarded a contract from Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) to automate 39 substations of various ratings across Nepal, including construction of six master control centers (MCCs).

The MCCs will be monitored by GE Digital Solutions. The project is funded by Asian Development Bank (ADB). The project scope also includes retrofitting of relay panels and other electrical components in the substations. After the substations are automated, GE will connect the substations to Nepal’s national load dispatch center (NLDC) to enable real-time monitoring of power transmitting through these substations.
