Crompton Greaves recently started operations from its new extra high voltage (EHV) switchgear manufacturing facility in Sapucaia do Sul in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. This is CG's manufacturing unit in Brazil.

The new factory will manufacture a wide range of EHV switchgear targeted at the Brazilian utility market segment. CG intends to differentiate by introducing its latest models and provide Brazilian customers with a 30 per cent reduced lead time. CG expects to reach more than 10 per cent of the market, an official statement noted.

The annual designed manufacturing capacity exceeds 500 HV breakers, 1000 lightning arresters and 300 instrument transformers. CG expects annual revenue in excess of $50 million during the first years of operation. The release added that CG has already received more than $6 million worth of orders from utilities such as CEMIG, CPFL, CEEE, RGE and Toshiba.
