Hitachi Energy India has opened its third factory in Bengaluru, Karnataka. The factory spreads over 5,000 sq mtr, and will serve customers in power utilities, industries, renewable energy, and rail segments.
The company has invested close to Rs 100 crore in building up the new facility.
It expects to double its existing power quality products’ capacity from 10,000 to 22,000 MVAR through its latest factory in Bengaluru.
The new manufacturing facility doubles the existing capacity to produce advanced capacitor units, banks, and power electronic compensators for low, medium and high voltage systems used in the power utilities, industries, renewables, and transportation segments.
The company will directly employ 300–400 people in its facility and will also offer indirect employment to local suppliers across the manufacturing value chain.
