Alstom T&D India has been awarded a €7 million (INR 550 million) contract by Mangdechhu Hydroelectric Project Authority (MHPA) to supply power transformers (4 x 180 MW) for the 720 MW Mangdechhu Hydroelectric Project. Located by the river Mangdechhu in Trongsa district, Bhutan, the project is a major landmark in grid development for hydro power in Bhutan.

Alstom T&D India will supply thirteen units of 75 MVA, 400 kV generator transformers and an 80 MVAR, 400 kV shunt reactor. Alstom will design, engineer, manufacture, supply, transport, erect, test and commission the generator transformer, shunt reactor and associated equipment for the project. All equipment will be supplied from Alstom T&D India’s world class manufacturing facility in Naini.

According to the Central Electricity Authority of India, Bhutan has an enormous hydropower potential of approximately 25,000 MW. The Government of India and Royal Government of Bhutan have agreed to develop the hydropower sector in Bhutan, targeting 10,000 MW of hydroelectric generation by 2020. Alstom’s power transformers will evacuate the hydropower generated by the Mangdechhu Hydroelectric project.

“Alstom T&D India is pleased to contribute to an ambitious hydropower development plan, and help establish a robust electrical grid for Bhutan with its latest technological products,” said Rathin Basu, Managing Director of Alstom T&D India.
