CG and the CEA to Explore Solar Market Potential in India
Jan 27 16
Avantha Group Company CG and CEA (LITEN) have agreed to cooperate for a period of 12 months to investigate market potential and opportunities for Solar Photovoltaic (PV) system with storage function for Indian Airports. The agreement was formally announced during the recently held India-France Business Summit in Chandigarh. There is no capital investment in the first phase of this collaboration; however, following investigation if found suitable, the companies intend to set up manufacturing facilities using CG’s infrastructure and expertise in India and technology know-how of CEA for commercialising the business opportunity. Being a critical infrastructure Airports need significant energy backup. Use of Solar PV with battery backup is an innovative solution that will enable Indian airports to reduce carbon emissions by moving over the traditional diesel generator (DG) sets, at the same time make it an economical option given the considerable Time of Day (TOD) charges levied.
Avantha Group Company CG Wins Contract from Energinet.dk to Power Offshore Wind Farm in Baltic Sea
Jan 19 16
Avantha Group Company CG has won a contract from Energinet.dk to provide power transformers and gas insulated switchgear, or GIS, for the Kriegers Flak wind farm project in the Baltic Sea. The order consists of two onshore 500 MVA 410/235kV autotransformers (frame contract); four 220 MVA 32/225kV offshore platform substation transformers; and nine bays 220kV Gas Insulated Switchgear for the offshore platform substations. CG's equipment will maintain the overall short-term and long-term security of electricity supply from the wind farm. Kriegers Flak is to be developed in close partnership with their regional neighbours Sweden and Germany. The planned 600 MW offshore wind farm will act like a 'Supergrid', transmitting renewable energy through power grids to all three countries. It will be built in the waters between Mon, Denmark, southern Sweden and north Germany and its 130 wind turbines will produce around 2.1 TWh of electricity. The wind farm is planned to go into operation sometime between 2018 and 2020. It will help to more than double Denmark's wind power energy capacity to 42% and provide electricity to over 600,000 homes in the three countries.
