Enabling India to Attain the Highest Voltage Level in the World

Enabling India to attain the highest voltage level in the world

India’s rapid growth and urbanization calls for reliable electricity, to be accessible by all. With a quarter of India’s population lacking access to electricity, the need is to close the gap by 2019, with minimum environmental impact. Transmitting electricity at high voltages over long distances reduces losses, saves space and reduces cost, leading India towards higher voltage transmission. ABB is partnering India’s step towards AC transmission at the National Test Station, Bina, Madhya Pradesh, which is testing transmission of voltage levels of 1.2 million volts - the highest in the world! A specially developed circuit breaker and transformer designed, manufactured and tested by ABB are now energized and functioning here.
