GE's Grid Solutions business (GE) has announced that it has been awarded a contract by ReNew Power to build two 400 kV substations in the southwest state of Karnataka, India.
GE will build a 400/220 kV air-insulated substation in Koppal, and a 400 kV gas-insulated substation in Narendra. The contract also includes the supply of two 125 MVAR 400 kV reactors for each substation.
The contract with ReNew Power is part of the Narendra-Koppal transmission scheme. The scheme in turn is part of the planned interstate-based evacuation infrastructure that will create 66.5 GW of renewable energy zones in India. The Narendra-Koppal project, involving the evacuation of 2.5 GW from wind energy zones in Karnataka, is part of the first of three phases of the overall project.
