Power Grid selects Siemens to modernize India's oldest HVDC link

Power Grid Corporation of India has selected Siemens to modernize the country's first and oldest high voltage direct current (HVDC) link, Vindhyachal. This will be the first Siemens HVDC modernization project in India. The key components for the upgrade will be delivered from the Indian facility in Goa.

Located in Madhya Pradesh, the 500-megawatt HVDC back-to-back system was put into operation in 1989 to interconnect the asynchronous 400-kilovolt alternating current networks of the Northern and Western regions. By installing its latest HVDC components Siemens will extend the useful life of the system.

Power Grid Corporation of India is an Indian state-owned electric utilities company headquartered in Gurgaon, India. Power Grid transmits about 50% of the total power generated in India on its transmission network.
