GE Renewable Energy receives order to modernise 39 substation in Nepal

The Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has awarded GE Renewable Energy's Grid Solutions business a multi-million dollar contract to automate 39 substations of various ratings across Nepal, including the construction of six Master Control Centers (MCCs). The MCCs will be monitored by GE Digital Solutions, according to a company statement, and the project will be funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

Retrofitting relay panels and other electrical components in substations is also part of the project scope. Following the automation of the substations, GE will connect them to Nepal's National Load Dispatch Center (NLDC) to enable real-time monitoring of power transmitted through these substations. "Modernisation of these substations will help strengthen Nepal's power transmission network to meet current and future demands, improve reliability and quality of supply, and reduce losses. We are happy to award this contract to GE as part of this mission," Kul Man Ghising, Managing Director, NEA, said in the statement.

Johan Bindele, Grid Systems Integration Leader for GE Grid Solutions, said, "Intelligent controls are needed to ensure the smooth functioning of the grid and to manage the increase in power capacity. The modernisation of these substations will significantly improve the quality of power transmission in Nepal." Following years of chronic electricity shortages during Nepal's dry winter months, the Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has significantly improved the country's power generation capacity in recent years.
