ABB India has bagged an order worth around Rs 178 crore from Power Grid Company of Bangladesh Ltd (PGCB), the country’s leading transmission utility, to support the country’s power infrastructure expansion and meet its growing electricity needs.
As part of the project, ABB India will build two new substations and upgrade two existing substations, all located in the south-eastern parts of Bangladesh.
