Rathin Basu, Managing Director Alstom Grid in India commented, “Alstom Grid has been a pioneer in delivering EHV 765kV technology in the country since the commissioning of India’s first 765kV substation in 2007. Since then, we have maintained our leadership in the EHV market in India and secured significant orders in the last year, reinforcing our customers’ trust and demonstrating our expertise in advanced transmission technology products, offered through our highly advanced manufacturing facilities in India.”

Alstom Grid has been selected to supply extra high voltage transmission equipments to 28 out of 47 projects for 765 kV substations in India.
