The company has expanded its portfolio with orders from its power transmission, railways, and solar projects.

The Power Infrastructure and Renewable Energy (PIRE) business of Godrej Electricals and Electronics, a business unit of Godrej and Boyce Mfg. Co. Ltd., has secured orders worth over Rs 2,000 crore from its power transmission, railways, and solar projects.

The projects include EPC for EHV substations of 400kV and 765kV across India, a GIS Substation with 220kV underground cable in Mumbai and a 132kV Substation project in Nepal.

With respect to the solar segment, the company has secured an order for a ground-mounted solar plant of 20MW in West Bengal. The order supports the business' aim to promote energy conservation and boost its solar EPC portfolio by 30 per cent annually over the next three years

The business has embarked in the field of railway electrification with a project of over Rs 900 crore from Indian Railways for the construction of traction substations and associated works. The project aligns with India's vision of modernising its railways and promoting sustainable transportation, and is a part of ‘Mission Raftar' for upgrading speed to 160Kmph/200Kmph on the existing New Delhi-Howrah Route and between Mathura-Palwal on the existing New Delhi-Mumbai Routes.

Raghavendra Mirji, Senior Vice President and Business Head, Godrej Electricals and Electronics said, "These orders align well with our diversification strategy to strengthen the power transmission sector and enter the railways and international segments. With the substation orders in power transmission, we have now diversified our customer base to include non-utility clients, in addition to the current power utilities. With these orders, G&B has expanded its portfolio in EHV cable, EHV substation, traction substation and solar projects across India as well as in Nepal."
