As per the contract, Alstom will supply six units of 400/220 kV, 500 MVA transformers and two units of 420 kV, 125 MVA shunt reactors.

This is Alstom T&D India’s second power grid strengthening contract under the System Strengthening Scheme. The first power transmission reinforcement contract was awarded in July 2014 for eastern India.
