GE awarded contract by ReNew Power to help develop renewable energy zones in India

GE’s Grid Results business (NYSEGE) blazoned moment that it has been awarded a contract by ReNew PowerPvt.Ltd., India’s leading company in terms of total generation capacity, to make two 400 kV substations in the southwest state of Karnataka, India-a400/220 kV air- isolated substation in Koppal, and a 400 kV gas- isolated substation in Narendra. The contract also includes the force of two 125 MVAR 400 kV reactors for each substation.
GE’smulti-million bone contract with ReNew Power is part of the Narendra-Koppal transmission scheme. The scheme in turn is part of the planned interstate- grounded evacuation structure that will produce66.5 GW of renewable energy zones in India. The Narendra-Koppal design, involving the evacuation of2.5 GW from wind energy zones in Karnataka, is part of the first of three phases of the overall design.

This is Grid Results business’third substation design with ReNew Power. “ We’re pleased by ReNew Power’s continued confidence in our innovative technology, as well as engineering and service capabilities,” said Pitamber Shivnani, Regional Leader for Grid Results in South Asia. “ We look forward to helping accelerate the energy transition in India by helping to void further renewable energy from the southwestern part of the country with these substations.”
“ ReNew Power is committed to leading India’s transition down from fossil energies and meeting the rising demand for energy in a sustainable manner by delivering cleaner and smarter energy choices and thereby reducing India’s carbon footmark. We’re pleased to mate with GE’s Grid Results for bringing power efficiently and reliably for our guests through their state-of-the art grid technology,” said Ajay Bhardwaj, President-New Business of ReNew Power.

GE is anticipated to complete its work in three phases-two in December 2022 and one in August 2023. All products are being manufactured in India, for India.
With a patient focus on decarbonization and round-the- timepiece power, the Indian energy geography is witnessing significant positive metamorphosis. The country has committed to install 175 GW of renewable energy by 2022 and further than double itsnon-fossil energy target to 450 GW by 2030. The country has formerly achieved a corner of 100 GW of installed renewable energy capacity, as of September 2021. Presently, India ranks 4th in the world in terms of installed renewable energy capacity. It ranks 5th in terms of solar capacity and 4th in terms of wind capacity.
