BANGALORE, INDIA, Oct 08, 2020 - (JCN Newswire) - Hitachi ABB Power Grids listed on the Indian stock exchanges as "ABB Power Products and Systems India Ltd." has won a project worth more than INR 100 crore from HPCL Rajasthan Refinery Limited (HRRL), a joint venture between state-run Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited and the Government of Rajasthan. The infrastructure development will help to power its new refinery and petrochemical project in the Barmer district of Rajasthan.
With a total processing capacity of nine million metric tons per annum, this project is aimed at producing clean fuels and feedstock for textile, packaging, and petroleum industries.

Gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) with its compact and low-maintenance design will be installed, enabling the refinery to conserve space.
To maximize power availability the substation is equipped with advanced substation automation systems to control and protect HRRL's grid. It is also deploying industry-leading power transformers, to further enhance power infrastructure safety and efficiency.
"We are very pleased to be lending support to this project which will further propel infrastructure development, economic revival and job creation in the State", said N Venu, Managing Director, Hitachi ABB Power Grids in India. "India is the third-biggest consumer of oil and refiners need to prime themselves ahead of time to avoid potential supply disruptions.
