At nearly 25% of the order book, exports remained healthy, with orders from established export markets of Nepal, Bhutan, Middle East, and the Americas. Understanding the market requirements, Hitachi Energy has been proactively augmenting its manufacturing muscle to meet changing demand.

Service orders remained strong from a healthy mix of base orders for retrofit and spares from utilities, including some breakthrough orders for GIS bay extension and Substation Automation Systems (SAS). As a partner across customers’ plan-build-operate lifecycle, Hitachi Energy in India continued to provide technical expertise services such as renewable studies for utilities and engineering advisory for mining behemoths.

As of September 30, 2022, the order backlog stood at INR 7,009 crore, providing revenue visibility for the coming quarters.

Turning one and stronger than ever

The company’s pioneering technologies and solutions are helping to accelerate the carbon-neutral future, improving the quality of life for today’s generations and those that come.

This is the beginning of another chapter where the company will continue and deliver results with strategic expansion to drive focus markets.
