Hitachi ABB Power Grids Ltd. today announced that it has received a \$20 million order from TEİAŞ, the transmission system operator for electricity in Türkiye, to supply power transformers for an ambitious grid expansion project that will bring affordable power to remote regions across the country. This project will reduce reliance on unreliable and polluting local energy sources, such as diesel generators, and enable a high-quality and uninterrupted supply of electricity.

This major commitment to installing a modern power system in these remote, rural regions will enable further industrial investments, such as factories and other businesses, providing employment and stimulating the economy. 

Hitachi ABB Power Grids’ transformer business will supply several 62.5 MVA and 100 MVA, 154 kV power transformers. The company’s proven track record for high quality and reliability makes these transformers ideal for this modern system and remote location.

“We are proud to be supplying TEİAŞ with transformers for this massive power grid investment in Türkiye,” said Bruno Melles, Managing Director of Hitachi ABB Power Grids’ transformer business. “Helping people gain access to reliable grid electricity is essential for a sustainable energy future that will have electricity as its backbone.”
