Mumbai to get 1000 MW more electricity with Hitachi Energy’s HVDC link

Hitachi Energy announced it has won a major order from Adani Electricity Mumbai Infra Ltd, part of Adani, to provide a high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission system which will link Kudus to Mumbai, on India’s west coast.

Mumbai is experiencing a rapid increase in electricity consumption, seeing peak demand increasing to 3,850 megawatts (MW) in 2022, of which around 2,100 MW was supplied from outside sources. The new HVDC link will supply up to 1,000 MW of electricity, increasing power from outside of the city by almost 50%. The link will strengthen the existing transmission infrastructure and help Adani to ensure a reliable power supply in the region.

“Mumbai is one of the world’s most densely populated cities, with a population of over 20 million, and, by utilizing Hitachi Energy’s compact HVDC system and 50 kms of underground cables rather than overhead lines, almost 2.3 square kms of land will be saved – the equivalent of more than 320 soccer pitches,” a statement issued by Hitachi Energy said.

“Our HVDC systems have tremendous potential for bringing large amounts of electricity directly into cities, such as Mumbai, where it is needed most but space is severely limited,” said Andreas Berthou, Global Product Group Manager of HVDC and HVDC Service of Hitachi Energy’s Grid Integration business. “As the world becomes more sustainable, electricity will be the backbone of the entire energy system.”

Raigarh-Pugalur is Hitachi Energy’s sixth HVDC project in India and the second UHVDC installation, following the multi-terminal North-East Agra link.
