GE T&D India Secures Major Order from Power Grid Corporation of India

GE T&D India Ltd., a listed entity of GE Vernova’s Electrification business in India, announced that it has secured orders from Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd (PGCIL) to build a State Transmission Asset Management Centre (STAMC) in Odisha, India for Odisha Power Transmission Corporation Limited (OPTCL).

The goal of the Centre is to help OPTCL operate its grid more efficiently, reliably, and resiliently through real-time grid monitoring and control. Through this project, GE T&D India Ltd. endeavors to provide a comprehensive turnkey solution spanning hundreds of OPTCL substations. Once complete, the substations are planned to be remotely controlled with advanced grid software solutions including Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition, Video Monitoring System, Remote Accessibility System, and Automated Fault Analysis System, which will be installed at four locations across the state of Odisha.

Unifying data from grid assets like substations and transmission lines is expected to enable the proposed STAMC to provide more complete situational awareness to OPTCL, helping them to make better-informed decisions, resolve incidents faster, and optimize resources.

 Sandeep Zanzaria, MD & CEO of GE T&D India Ltd. said: “We are thrilled to have been selected for this important project in Odisha, which represents a major milestone in India’s journey towards decarbonization and net zero grids. Our innovative STAMC will help empower PGCIL and OPTCL to optimize their grid operations, continue to integrate renewable energy sources more effectively, and ultimately contribute to a smarter, resilient, and more sustainable grid for the future.”
