Mumbai. Avantha Group Company CG has been awarded a major contract for $60 million for the turnkey construction of four high voltage GIS substations by the Electrical Transmission Project Office of the Ministry of Electricity (MOE) in Iraq. The company will design, manufacture, deliver and install the substations, thus helping upgrade and reinforce the existing 132 kV electricity transmission grid.

The delivery will include all electrical engineering works, 12 power transformers, medium voltage and high voltage Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) and SCADA/control and protection systems for the high voltage substations. The project is expected to be completed by August 2014.

CEO and Managing Director Laurent Demortier of Avantha Group Company CG said: "We thank the Ministry of Electricity in Iraq for renewing their trust in CG, which has supported Iraq for the last 25 years and helped build its electrical infrastructure. CG has supplied high quality, reliable T&D products and has a successful track record of building similar substations in the Middle East region. We look forward to strengthening our relationship with the Ministry in Iraq as a long-standing partner."
