Alstom looks at bolstering its market position

We are looking forward to Elecrama 2016 as an opportunity for strengthening our leadership in offering advanced technological solutions for future transmission and distribution needs.
  Elecrama is one of the largest trade shows for electrical and electronics industry in Asia and provides an incredible platform to showcase innovative products and interact with prospective buyers. Stating on the Elecrama participation of his company Rathin Basu, Managing Director, Alstom T&D India Ltd says, “We have been associated with Elecrama for the past decade and have showcased our high-technology products and services and integrated energy management solutions. This year, we are looking forward to Elecrama 2016 as an opportunity for strengthening our leadership in offering advanced technological solutions for future transmission and distribution needs.”
Serving the market needsSpeaking on the opportunities out of Elecrama Basu informs, “As India’s leading company that has been providing end to end power solutions for several decades now, Elecrama gives us an opportunity to strengthen existing relationships, foster new tie-ups and showcase our wide spectrum of next generation products backed by cutting-edge technology.”
The Indian grid is expected to integrate a significant amount of renewable power (wind, solar etc) in the coming 5 to 7 years. “We have advanced technological solutions in this domain and look forward to serving emerging market needs,” coments Basu. 
Poor growthPower generation and T&D markets are on a negative growth path over the last 4 years. The demand from IPPs is almost at zero level. Only NTPC and central PSUs and some state GENCOS are investing in power generation. Similarly in the T&D domain, the demand is mainly from power grid and some state TRANSCOS. Demand from private sector and industry are at a very low level. Overall, the demand for electrical equipment is still at a low level leading to overcapacity with manufacturers in power generation and T&D domains. “The poor demand from discoms is one of the key factors of this low demand in the electrical equipment market,” observes Basu.
India’s per capita electrical consumption of 1,010 kwh is at a very low level compared to China’s per capita consumption of 4,000 kwh and western world’s per capita of over 12,000 kwh. India has to go a long way in improving electrical power consumption which would lead to industrial growth of India. On this note Basu suggests, “The recently announced UDAY scheme for discoms should allow the discoms to serve its customers better and avoid load shedding as the availability of power has increased over the last 4 years.”
The recent initiatives in solar and wind power segments are also expected to create demand in the coming years, he adds.
