ABB India Ltd, a subsidiary of Swiss engineering group ABB, said it has won a Rs 172-crore order from Power Grid Company of Bangladesh Ltd.
The order is for supply of four 132/33kV turnkey substations. ABB will also help Power Grid Company expand its six other substations.
"Developing countries have the opportunity to directly adopt technologically advanced infrastructure that deliver greater efficiency and have a smaller carbon footprint," Bazmi Husain, country manager at ABB India, said in a statement.
Power Grid Company is in the process of upgrading Bangladesh's electricity generation, transmission and distribution systems to increase capacity, improve efficiency and reduce environmental impact.
"We are happy to partner with ABB as we invest in strengthening the country's power infrastructure for the future, and hope to benefit from technology leadership they have to offer." said Masum-Al-Beruni, managing director at Power Grid Company.
According to ABB's estimate, 4.5 lakh households in Bangladesh will get new power connections through this programme, while carbon emissions will be reduced by almost 2.5 million tonne per year.
The project's scope includes design, supply, installation and commissioning of the substations.
