The Public Establishment of Electricity for Generation and Transmission (PEEGT; Damascus), Syria's power generation and transmission utility, awarded ABB India a US$35 million contract to engineer and build six high-voltage substations in Syria to upgrade the country's transmission network.

The scope of the project includes designing, procuring, manufacturing and supplying the equipment for six 230/66/20-kV substations in Dera, Al-Fayha, Bebila, Telhamis, North Aleppo and Sarakeb. The substations will play an important role in improving power supply to these towns and strengthening Syria's power network.

This is the largest-ever export order for ABB India. ABB will supply power transformers, instrument transformers, outdoor circuit breakers, medium-voltage switchgear, and control and relay panels from its manufacturing facilities at Vadodara, Nashik and Bangalore. The European Investment Bank is financing the project, which is scheduled for completion in two years.
