ABB bags Rs. 256-crore order in Sri Lanka.
Power and automation technology firm ABB has bagged a contract worth Rs. 256 crore from the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) to supply two 220 kV substations and upgrade an existing substation in Sri Lanka.

The new substations will be constructed at Polpitiya in the Central Province and Padukka near the capital, Colombo, in the Western Province, while the existing substation at Pannipitiya, a suburb of Colombo, will be augmented, a release issued recently.

The project is scheduled for completion in 2017. As part of the turnkey contract, ABB will design, engineer, supply and commission the substations and provide high-voltage air-insulated switchgear, medium-voltage indoor gas-insulated switchgear, power transformers, IEC 61850-compliant protection and substation automation, and fiber-optic communications systems.

The Sri Lankan government plans to install additional power generation capacity of over 2,500 MW and to increase the share of renewable energy in the national grid to about 20 percent by 2020.
