CG’s High-End Transformers to Muscle CAMEG Algeria’s Mega Project
- Indigenously built high-voltage equipment worth 4 million Euros
- New office in Algeria in line with global expansion strategy
- Improving the reliability of the Algerian energy infrastructure
Avantha Group Company CG has bagged an order from CAMEG (Comptoir Algérien du Matériel Electrique et Gazier) for the supply and installation of 60kV Instrument Transformers at numerous substations across Algeria. CG will provide indigenously built high-voltage equipment worth Euro 4 million, which include 800×60 kV Current Transformers, 800×60 kV Capacitive Voltage Transformers, and 250×60 kV Inductive Voltage Transformers. The project commenced in April 2014 and will be completed by October 2015. CG’s manufacturing facilities in Nashik and Aurangabad (in India) will be a part of the project that involves CG delivering equipment in Algiers, Oran, Skikda, DjenDjen and Mostaganem. CG’s HV substations will be dispatched across Algeria.
CAMEG is a subsidiary of Algeria’s state-owned energy company Sonelgaz, in charge of electricity and natural gas distribution in the country. Sonelgaz is investing heavily to expand and upgrade Algeria’s power generation and distribution network. CG’s high-end transformers will play a vital role in improving the reliability of the Algerian energy infrastructure.
CG was selected for this prestigious project due to its successful track record in Algeria backed by global recognition of its technical expertise in manufacturing and supplying high-voltage transformers at the best quality to price ratio. CG has developed in-depth understanding of the power grid network in Algeria and has highlighted key areas that need efficient 60 and 220 kV High Voltage equipment. The demand is further heightened by ongoing upgrades to Algeria’s medium voltage network (from 10kV to 30kV), which will involve erection of many substations. CG has also established a new office in Alger, Algeria, to oversee and provide end-to-end support for the ongoing project.
Commenting on the order, Avantha Group Company CG’s CEO and Managing Director, Laurent Demortier, said: “We are delighted to support Sonelgaz and CAMEG’s ongoing upgrade of their electricity network. The order is yet another step in our expansion in Algeria, and parallels our global projects in other countries. We thank CAMEG for its continued trust in CG, and look forward to strengthening our relationship as a long-standing partner for reliable and globally benchmarked power equipment.”
