Electric Transmission and Distribution Equipment Market Introduction

Electric transmission and distribution equipment are the tools that are employed for the movement of power or electrical energy from a power generation plant to an electrical substation located somewhere else. Electric transmission and distribution equipment involve interconnected lines, known as transmission networks, which facilitate the movement of electrical energy. Various types of electric transmission and distribution equipment, including transformers, wires & cables, power supply, and meters, are undergoing technological transformations with the rise in demand for more efficient, safer, and more reliable equipment. 

Electric Transmission and Distribution Equipment Market – Notable Developments

  • ABB Groups – a Swiss-Swedish multinational corporation operating in the electric transmission and distribution market – recently announced that is has expanded its transformer product range by launching new products. The new range of ABB’s products includes ABB AbilityTMTXpertTMDry, which as the company claims is world’s first dry-type (oil free) digital transformer, along with another innovative product called TXpandTM. The company aims to expand its transformer product range with the digitally integrated transformer technologies such as the ABB AbilityTM, the TXpertTM distribution transformers, and the TXploreTM service solution.
  • GE Power and TransnetBW – two of the leading companies in the electric transmission and distribution equipment market – recently signed an agreement to build the Eichstetten 380 kV substation, which is a highly loaded link for the transmission grid in the southwest of Germany. The contract for a turnkey solution is mainly aligned with GE’s strategy to offer scalable power solutions and TransnetBW’s plans for expanding its electricity grid in Germany.
  • Prysmian Group – an Italian company in the electric transmission and distribution equipment market and world leader in the energy and telecom cable systems industry – announced that it has signed a €17 million contract with New Brunswick Power Corporation (NB Power) – an electric utility in the Atlantic Canada. The company declared that it will be developing a new submarine cable link which will connect the mainland power grid in the Canadian province to Campobello Island, Deer Island, and Grand Manan Island. The company will be upgrading the existing capacity of submarine transmission system in the Passamaquoddy Region of the Bay of Fundy, which presents very strong currents with the highest tides in the world.
