GE Vernova to build state transmission asset management center in Odisha


GE T&D India Ltd, a listed entity of GE Vernova’s electrification business in India, announced today that it has secured orders from Power Grid Corp. of India Ltd (PGCIL) to build a state transmission asset management center in Odisha, India, for Odisha Power Transmission Corp. Ltd (OPTCL). The center will help OPTCL operate their grid more efficiently, reliably, and resiliently through real-time grid monitoring and control.

Through this project, GE T&D India Ltd will provide a comprehensive turnkey solution spanning hundreds of OPTCL substations. Once complete, the substations will be remotely controlled with advanced grid software solutions including supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), video monitoring system, remote accessibility system and automated fault analysis system, which will be installed at four locations across the state of Odisha.

Unifying data from grid assets like substations and transmission lines will enable the proposed transmission asset management centre to provide more complete situational awareness to OPTCL, helping it make better informed decisions, resolve incidents faster, and optimize resources.

Sandeep Zanzaria, managing director and chief executive officer of GE T&D India Ltd, said, “Our innovative STAMC will help empower PGCIL and OPTCL to optimize their grid operations, continue to integrate renewable energy sources more effectively and ultimately contribute to a smarter, resilient and more sustainable grid for the future.”

GE Vernova’s Electrification Software business has delivered more than 100 grid control centres from its sites in Noida and Hyderabad, effectively contributing to the ‘Make in India’ initiative, a government-led initiative to create and encourage companies to develop, manufacture and assemble products in India. In the past, the Electrification Software business has delivered transmission and distribution projects like Unified Real-time Dynamic State Measurements (URTDSM), National Transmission Asset Management Centre (NTAMC), Renewable Energy Management Center (REMC) and Unified Load Dispatch and Communication (ULDC) in India.
