Toshiba wins EPC contract for HVDC power conversion system
Toshiba Corporation has announced that Toshiba and Toshiba T&D Europe S.p.A., a subsidiary located in Genoa, Italy, won an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for a high-voltage and direct current (HVDC) power conversion system for an undersea power transmission line between Cepagatti (Italy) and Kotor (Montenegro). The project will deliver a maximum 1,000 MW of power to Cepagatti and will contribute to the integration of the Southeastern Europe and EU power grids. Toshiba will initiate construction of the project in September 2013 and start delivery of equipment in April 2015. Conversion stations along the route are expected to start operation in September 2017.
Toshiba won the contract in cooperation with TTDE, the former Ansaldo Transmissione & Distribuzione S.p.A., an Italian transmission and distribution (T&D) engineering firm which Toshiba acquired in March 2011.
The company is also promoting its T&D business in the emerging economies of the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Brazil, India and Russia — all of which are expected to see demand growth. Going forward, Toshiba will expand its business globally by offering reliable, high performance equipment.
