ABB declared a strategic realignment of its global transformer manufacturing, engineering and service footprint to enhance competitiveness in a dynamic market environment which is marked by increasing competition and consolidation in the rail industry. The move is part of the ‘Power Up’ transformation program in ABB’s Power Grids division.
To serve growing market needs and enhance customer proximity in Asia, Middle East and Africa, ABB will expand its traction transformer operations in India, supporting the government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative. The company will also invest in upgrading its Datong traction transformer facility in China to improve efficiency and meet growing demand.
