ABB looks to forge new business relationships

We will focus on our solutions for the evolving grid such as microgrids and digital substations – both concepts that address very relevant aspects in shaping the grid of the future.
— Pitamber Shivnani, President, Local Division Manager, Power Grids Division, ABB Ltd
  ABB has a long standing relationship with Elecrama. Speaking on the ABB’s participation in the forthcoming edition, Pitamber Shivnani, President, Local Division Manager, Power Grids Division, ABB Ltd says, “It is a vibrant forum that consistently reflects the trends and technologies in the power industry.  It attracts a large number of customers, as well as other stakeholders in the power sector including delegates from ministries and industry bodies. It is an important event for us to have an ABB presence as it offers the ideal opportunity to gain customer mind share and meet industry peers.” 
ABB at Elecrama 2016ABB plans to display a wide spectrum of products, systems and services that improve energy efficiency and productivity at every stage of the energy chain – from generation to end use. “We will focus on our solutions for the evolving grid such as micro-grids and digital substations – both concepts that address very relevant aspects in shaping the grid of the future,” informs Shivnani.
In the area of digitisation, ABB’s TROPOS wireless solution will be on display. The company will also showcase several products and technologies that improve power quality such as STATCON and a 33 kV vacuum switch, a futuristic product in the 33kV segment, when the distribution industry and utilities foresee re-structuring.
In addition, ABB will also display 145 kV gas-insulated switchgear, a technology that is a growing industry need. “We will also bring to the industry all new generation transformer devices that collect and store data for analysis along with our legacy and strength in transformers,” Shivnani adds.
Performance of electrical equipment marketThe electrical equipment sector continues to reflect the demands of a tepid larger market. Capacity utilisation across core sectors remains below 70 per cent. Various policy initiatives and concrete effort across industry point towards increased local manufacturing and smarter power infrastructures. According to Shivnani, when these translate on ground, industries will first use existing capacities before investing in new infrastructure assets, especially among independent power producers. “Another deciding factor would be in terms of financing – successful restructuring of State Electricity Boards under the government’s UDAY scheme has the potential to revitalise investment by SEBs which would then create demand across the power generation and transmission sector,” he adds. Forging new business relationshipsElecrama brings a microcosm of our entire industry – from power producers to transmission and distribution companies, industry players, and EPCs – under one roof.  Speaking on the opportunities out of Elecrama, Shivnani says, “It has always been our experience that we have the opportunity to engage in enriching and fruitful discussions, and I am sure this year will be no exception. We look forward to strengthening our existing partnerships and forging new business relationships.”
