The facilities are located in Vadodara, Manesar and Malerkotla, across the country’s eastern and northern regions. ABB’s solution will help augment the substations to meet growing demand in the states of Gujarat, Haryana and Punjab, which form a significant part of the country’s agricultural belt. The order was booked in the second quarter of 2015.
