CG is amongst the top 10 transformer manufacturers in the world; and one of the very few companies worldwide, that designs and manufactures such a wide range of Power and Distribution Transformers as well as Reactors from 160kVA to 600MVA, and 11kV to 765 kV Class, conforming to IEC, ANSI, IS, BS and other International Standards. It has recently made an aggressive foray into the manufacture of 765kV transformers with the execution of its maiden order for the Power Grid Corporation of India. CG is a preferred supplier for a wide range of Transformers and Reactors for many critical applications. CG products find use in Industries, Power Utilities, Railways, Mines, and a wide population of Industrial users internationally.
CG has pioneered the technology for the manufacture of compact, reliable SLIM® transformers with high overload capacity in collaboration with Dupont‟s Nomex® thermal insulating technology, rendering it a world leader in wind farm installations, where these transformers have extensive applications. Its Hungarian plant has over 125 years of experience in the production of high voltage GIS switchgear, power transformers, and in the turnkey implementation of various power transmission and distribution projects, including sub-stations. Strengthening these capabilities is its Automation Solutions business which amplifies the Group‟s response to smart "solutions", to respond to the ever changing needs of modern business consumers. CG‟s Power Systems turnkey T&D and sub-station project management team offers comprehensive turnkey solutions and services for design, manufacture, supply, construction, installation, testing, commissioning, and servicing of large scale turnkey projects. It brings to its projects a single window source, together with proven project management and execution expertise.
CG is also building competencies and pursuing business opportunities in new segments - renewable energy, ultra high voltage and energy automation, to further augment the products it supplies for windmills and solar power projects. Besides its product strengths, CG has also forayed into turnkey solutions for the renewable segment, by designing and building transmission grids for offshore wind parks. CG‟s acquisition of the MSE Group has further increased its strength as a Systems Integrator in the EPC International business arena, particularly in the Renewable Energy (Wind) segment. CG has also entered into an agreement with the New York State to establish its US R&D facility at the Albany Nanotech Facility, which will enable it to undertake R&D activities in the fields of smart grid technologies and renewable energy applications.
With such a wide and constantly increasing array of products, solutions and services in its portfolio, CG‟s Power Systems SBU is well poised to benefit from tap the enormous growth potential provided by global opportunities.
