Avantha Group Company CG has sealed a prestigious deal with PT PLN (Perusahaan Listrik Negara) Indonesia, for the manufacture and supply of 37 units of 60MVA, 30MVA and 150/20kV Power Transformers. Valued at USD 26 million, CG's power transformers will be installed across PT PLN's transmission network, in 36 different substations in Sumatra, Java, Bali, Kalimantan and the Sulawesi islands of Indonesia.
