ABB Power Products and Systems India has bagged a project worth more than Rs 100 crore from HPCL Rajasthan Refinery (HRRL), a joint venture between the state-run Hindustan Petroleum Corporation and the government of Rajasthan.
The infrastructure development will help to power its new refinery and petrochemical project in Barmer district of Rajasthan.
With a total processing capacity of nine million tpa, the project is aimed at producing clean fuels and feedstock for textile, packaging and petroleum industries.
It is expected to create around 1,000 direct jobs upon completion and up to 40,000 indirect jobs during construction.
Hitachi ABB Power Grids is delivering 220/66 kV substation to assimilate power from the state grid and deliver it smoothly and efficiently to the Barmer refinery.
Gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) with its compact and low-maintenance design will be installed, enabling the refinery to conserve space. In order to maximise power availability, the substation is equipped with advanced substation automation systems to control and protect HRRL’s grid.
It is also deploying power transformers to further enhance power infrastructure safety and efficiency.
