Bangalore, April 23 (IANS) Leading power and automation technology group major ABB will invest Rs.250 crore ($47 million) to manufacture high-voltage power products and transformers for domestic users and exports, the company said Monday.

“The new manufacturing unit at Savli near Vadodara in Gujarat will strengthen our local footprint and enhance our product portfolio. The facility will be operational by this year-end,” said ABB power products manager Pitamber Shivnani in a statement here.

The product portfolio will include high-voltage gas-insulated switchgear, plug and switch system hybrid switchgear and dry-type and oil immersed distribution transformers for the development of the country’s power infrastructure.

“The new factory will also manufacture vacuum cast coil dry-type transformers and oil immersed distribution transformers. It will help to bridge a gap in the present product offering in the country and extend the distribution transformer range up to 10 megavolt amperes, 33 kilovolts,” said Shivnani.

The company has global expertise in the design and manufacture of transformers for special requirements that optimize space and can withstand the most demanding conditions. Dry-type transformers help reduce environmental impact and can be deployed in environmentally challenging conditions.
