Hitachi Energy wins orders worth over Rs. 160 Cr from India’s railways

Hitachi Energy India Ltd. announced that it has won orders over Rs 160 crore for its key electric components to support the electrification of the country’s rail routes. The government of India’s electric locomotive manufacturers, Chittaranjan Locomotive Works (CLW) and Diesel Loco Modernisation Works (DMW), part of Indian Railways, placed orders with Hitachi Energy for traction transformers for passenger and freight locomotives in the October-December 2021 period.

“Electricity will be the backbone of the entire energy system and at Hitachi Energy we are committed to the accelerated electrification and decarbonization of the world’s transportation and rail sectors,” said N Venu, Managing Director and CEO, Hitachi Energy India Ltd. He added, “Indian Railways is a longstanding customer of Hitachi Energy and these orders are further evidence that Hitachi Energy is regarded as a trusted partner of choice for the rail industry. A clean and reliable electric rail network is fundamental for India to build back better, supporting the movement of people and goods whilst reducing the environmental impact.”

Traction transformers are critical components in the traction chain that affect both train performance and operator services. More than half the world’s electric locomotives and train sets are powered by Hitachi Energy transformers, the company claims.
