“India is projected to be among the top 3 energy consumers of the world by 2030 and currently is the fifth largest consumer*. This exponential increase in demand followed by the mix of diversified and distributed energy sources has increased the requirement for quality power equipment manufacturing in India. ABB’s wide portfolio and future-proof technology has a significant role to play in supporting this growing demand,” said Sanjeev Sharma, Country Head and Managing Director, ABB India. “We have been consistently investing in Gujarat, making it one of our largest manufacturing campuses. The inauguration of this facility demonstrates our commitment to partner India’s grid expansion and clean energy targets.”

By supervising the safe continuity of electrical networks and reliable power distribution, relays, centralized protection and control systems will play a critical role in India’s renewable energy and carbon reduction targets. The Indian government has a vision to increase the local manufacturing of electrical and electronic equipment, making India a global hub by setting up dedicated manufacturing zones in the country.

“The electrification of energy grids around the world has increased focus on reliable energy distribution, with connected, digital technologies a key enabler for transforming power distribution networks. Digitalization can offer new levels of safety, real time control and monitoring of power flow, seamless communication, self-diagnosis and data processing,” said Ganesh Kothawade, Senior Vice President, Electrification Business, ABB India.
