Hitachi in technology pact with Russian Grids

Japanese technology giant Hitachi has entered the Russian energy market after clinching a deal with electric power transmission and distribution company Russian Grids.

Hitachi has signed a scientific and technological co-operation agreement with Russian Grids to provide technical co-operation on the modernisation and stabilisation of power distribution infrastructure.

The pact marks the first time that Hitachi has taken any non- consumer goods business into Russia.

The first project Hitachi will work on will be to investigate specific measures to enhance the efficiency and reliability of transmission and distribution networks in the Republic of Buryatia.

This project includes the study of substation equipment upgrades, improvements to the energy efficiency of substation buildings, and installations of grid stabilisation systems designed to support renewable energy.
