Toshiba wins EPC contract for HVDC power conversion system
Toshiba Corporation has announced that Toshiba and Toshiba T&D Europe S.p.A., a subsidiary in Genoa, Italy, won an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for a high-voltage and direct current (HVDC) power conversion system for an undersea power transmission line between Cepagatti (Italy) and Kotor (Montenegro). Toshiba won the contract in cooperation with TTDE, the former Ansaldo Transmissione & Distribuzione S.p.A., an Italian transmission and distribution (T&D) engineering firm which Toshiba acquired in March 2011. Toshiba will initiate construction of the project in September 2013 and start delivery of equipment in April 2015. Conversion stations along the route are expected to start operation in September 2017.
The project will deliver a maximum 1,000 MW of power to Cepagatti and will contribute to the integration of the Southeastern Europe and EU power grids. The Cepagatti-Kotor HVDC system will extend over 400 km, allowing imports from Montenegro. The HVDC contact was awarded to Toshiba consortium after comprehensive evaluation of Toshiba’s high-performance technology and TTDE’s extensive engineering experience. It will allow Toshiba Group to enter the European HVDC market ahead of other Japanese EPC contractors.
The company is also promoting its T&D business in the emerging economies of the Middle East and Southeast Asia, Brazil, India and Russia, all of which are expected to see demand growth. Going forward, Toshiba will expand its business globally by offering reliable, high performance equipment.
