Avantha Group puts Ballarpur Industries Limited (BSE:500102) and Asthi on block. Gautam Thapar, Chairman of Avantha Group, said, “Ballarpur Industries and Asthi are our oldest units. Without your hard work and loyalty, we would not have made BILT a household name in paper in India and abroad. I thank each one of you for your dedication and more than 60 years of loyalty.

Avantha Group Company CG Wins $35 Million Order from Persero to Install Power Transformers

Avantha Group Company CG, or CG, has won an order of $35 million from PT PLN, or Persero, to manufacture and install 28 power transformers ranging from 83.3MVA to 167MVA and rated voltage 500kV/150kV. CG's power transformers will be installed across PT PLN's transmission network, spread over multiple substations and power plants in the Java, Sumatra and Kalimantan provinces of Indonesia. The delivery period is scheduled between May 2016 and March 2017. The order falls under a project funded by PT PLN to enhance the performance of the Indonesian transmission grid. Power transformers are critically important for PT PLN considering the present power situation in Indonesia. Through the deployment of CG's power transformers, PT PLN will be able to lessen its dependence on the import of heavy equipment, while simultaneously executing a timely implementation of its transmission network strengthening programme. Bidding for the contract took the form of a competitive and transparent open book process introduced by PT PLN in 2012. All manufacturers taking part therefore had to pass stringent quality checks, particularly with regard to low losses and a higher degree of polymerization. The power transformers will be manufactured in CG's world-class manufacturing facility in Indonesia, which comprises a vertical winding machine, a vapor phase drying oven and a 500kVA test facility.
