Toshiba Transmission & Distribution Systems group is a world leader in the supply of integrated solutions for energy Transmission & Distribution. Their systems effectively control T&D in order to deliver reliable electricity from Power Plants to Factories, Transportation Systems and even our Homes.Toshiba has developed its superior technology and has a history of high product quality in this market throughout the course of more than 100 years,manufacturing its first transformer in 1894 and its first switchgear in 1902.Toshiba Corporation, Japan has acquired the businesses of Power Transformers,Distribution Transformers & Switchgear from Vijai Electricals Limited, Rudraram Works, Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India in December 2013 and thus formed Toshiba Transmission & Distribution Systems (India) Pvt Ltd (TTDI).In an exclusive interview with Electrical India, Dr Katsutoshi Toda says, Toshiba will position TTDI, the new company as a core production base for expanding its T&D business.

What is the scope of transmission and distribution sector in India?

Due to the economical slow down in India,investment in T&D sector is not very positive for the past few years. The power demand is growing rapidly in India. So I believe this sector is promising in India from the long term point of view because space for the investment on T&D sector is still huge. Electric power supply per person in India is very small, as compared to China it is only 1/3rd, and so naturally it will increase much more in the future. For the growth of national economy and for the development of national infrastructure, decision making by the government is vital in all the countries. I am sure that the central and state governments will take appropriate decisions and lead the electrical industry in the proper direction in order to meet the continuous growing power demand in India.

India has planned to add an additional 88425 MW during the 12th five year plan up to March 2017 which is the highest so far in India. The power ministry projects that the power demand will be 400000 MW by 2022 and 800000 MW by 2032 in India. All the above points predict very bright scope for transmission and distribution sector in India in the future.

Could you share details about product range of your company and about the plans you have for updation of latest technology in the manufacturing facility?

Toshiba will position TTDI, the new company as a core production base for expanding its T&D business in India and the global market. At present we are the leading manufacturer of amorphous core transformer and CRGO core manufacturer in India.

We will extend power transformers up to 765 kV. We will also manufacture and supply all voltage range of shunt reactors shortly. Product range of switchgears will be enhanced adding new range of medium voltage and extra high voltage switchgear products.

On the medium voltage, we are planning to add Solid Insulated Switchgears and vacuum interrupters up to 84 kV. We will add Ring main units up to 36 kV and compact substations.

On the high voltage, we will introduce new range switchgears from 132 kV up until 800 kV to the product line. Further more, we expect Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) to become much more popular in India. Toshiba’s state-of-art GIS technology will be a strong portfolio of TTDI. We will also add Surge arrestors up to 765kV and its component technologies.

Thus TTDI covers full range of voltages of both transformers and switchgears. TTDI will also enter other growing markets in India, including power electronics systems, such as high voltage direct current (HVDC) power transmission and static VAR compensators for high voltage networks (SVC), and railway power supply systems.

Where would you envision your company in the next five years?

Toshiba has established TTDI, in India by acquiring the distribution transformer, power transformer and switchgear businesses of Vijai Electricals which entails the designing, manufacturing technologies,sales channels, and employees etc., Toshiba will integrate our state-of-the-art design and manufacturing technologies for T&D systems.

Toshiba will position TTDI, the new company as a core production base for expanding its T&D business in India and the global market, alongside its other bases in Japan,China, Brazil, Russia, Italy and Southeast Asia. Toshiba will add high-voltage power transformers, new range of medium voltage switchgears, medium and high voltage vacuum interrupters up to 84kV, and extra high-voltage switch gears for GIS and AIS, Medium and high voltage surge arrestors etc., as well as increase the manufacturing capacity especially for high-voltage switchgears. We are also going to position TTDI as a global supply center for products, sub assemblies and components to various Toshiba manufacturing facilities around the world.

How are you planning to position Toshiba in Indian and global market?

Toshiba will position TTDI, the new company as a core production base for expanding its T&D business in India and the global market. Toshiba has a long history for T&D business in India. With the acquired local manufacturing capability, Toshiba will have additional strength in T&D business in India and expand the business volumes. We believe that Toshiba (TTDI) can increase the market share by manufacturing and supplying customer focussed world class products and services as mentioned above with Japanese quality from the local factory. The knowledge base of Toshiba and the manufacturing capabilities of India will hugely benefit Toshiba in a big way. Also the delivery time will considerably come down reducing the cost of freight and duties giving us the marketing edge.

How advantageous was Elecrama show for you especially since it was held in Bangalore this time?

ELECRAMA is a gateway for opportunity to inform the customers in India and abroad that Toshiba has launched its global manufacturing hub in Hyderabad. It has provided the right platform to communicate that world class range of medium, high voltage products Toshiba is introducing in India. The customers were very keen to know the range of Toshiba products that planned to be manufactured in India and we have received overwhelming response through ELECRAMA 2014.
