Siemens supplies 46 transformer substations to Bangladesh

"We are especially proud to have landed another order in the region and to help further electrify the country," says Ralf Christian, CEO of the Energy Management Division. "The order is one in a long series of infrastructure projects that Siemens has been able to complete successfully in Bangladesh." Siemens will build outdoor substations for the 33-kV voltage level and enclosed substations for the 11-kV voltage level. The scope of supply also includes the power transformers, the outdoor vacuum circuit-breakers with converters, the insulators with and without grounding switches, the converters for outdoor installation as well as 11-kV switchgear for indoor installation. The turnkey project involves cooperation between the two regional companies, Siemens Bangladesh and Siemens India, under the leadership of Siemens India.
In Bangladesh, access to electricity cannot be taken for granted. Rural areas in particular are often cut off from the power grid. The government of Bangladesh has set itself the goal of fully electrifying the country by 2021. BREB is responsible for permanent electrification of the rural regions in Bangladesh and will help realize the Bangladesh government's vision of achieving full coverage by 2021. The project is part of BREB's efforts to expand the power distribution system in the country. While electrification programs over the past few decades have concentrated primarily on urban centers, the Rural Electricity Transmission and Distribution Project is now focusing on expanding the rural infrastructure.
