Hitachi Ltd recently announced that Hitachi Hi- Rel Power Electronics Pvt Ltd, its group company in India, has established and started operations at a new manufacturing facility in the Sanand-II Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC) Estate. With this new factory now operating alongside its existing Gandhinagar factory, Hitachi Hi-Rel intends to enhance the lineup of industrial power electronics for use in plants in fields such as power generation, steelmaking, and chemicals. The goal is to expand Hitachi Hi-Rel’s revenue of the growing Indian infrastructure market.

India is currently seeing the construction of many large-scale plants such as power plants, steel works and petrochemical plants, spurred by its rapidly growing economy and plans for large-scale investments in renewable energy to realize a low-carbon society. These developments are expected to lead to expansion in demand for industrial power electronics such as medium and low-voltage inverter drive systems, uninterrupted power supplies (UPS) and power conditioners for power generation. These products are required to ensure stable operations of large-scale factories, and to conserve energy, a statement by Hitachi observed.

In October 2011, Hitachi invested in Hi-Rel whereby Hi-Rel Electronics Pvt Ltd became a subsidiary and changed its name to Hitachi Hi-Rel Power Electronics Pvt Ltd. Since the 1980s, Hi-Rel Electronics had expanded mission-critical businesses in India, including backup power and power stabilizer solutions in a broad range of fields, such as oil refining, petrochemicals, power generation, steelmaking and metals.

Hitachi Hi-Rel’s Gandhinagar factory manufactures power electronics such as industrial UPS, battery chargers and inverters for railway applications. Furthermore, since October, 2012, the factory has added grid-connected solar power inverters to the production lineup to address demand in the renewable energy field.

The Sanand factory will produce industrial power electronics products such as medium-voltage and low voltage inverter drives steel automation drives and industrial automation products to increase its lineup of offerings. This will enable Hitachi Hi-Rel to manufacture cost competitive products with “best-inclass” quality with Hitachi manufacturing know-how.
