CG develops the 1200kV Surge Arrestors

1200 kV Arrester.



CG is proud to announce the successful development of yet another 1200 kV product to India`s most prestigious Power project. With this success, CG becomes the first Indian company to successfully develop 2 Ultra High Voltage products indigenously.


1200 kV Surge Arrester is a unique product, with highest energy handling capability to protect the power system & associated equipments from high energy surges. This development reaffirms CG`s leadership in the Power System Components in India and its exemplary commitment to fulfil the promises made to its customers.


This Ultra High Voltage product, the highest kV class in the world today, was conceived, designed & developed at Nasik by talented and passionate Switchgear R&D engineers, with unstinting support from Global R&D, Mumbai and manufacturing engineers from S4 division, Nasik. The product was extensively tested & evaluated for its performance at CGL-Nasik and UHV & High Power laboratories of Central Power Research Institutes at Hyderabad, Bangalore and Bhopal.


Earlier CGL had successfully developed the 1200 kV Capacitive Voltage Transformer (CVT) for this same project ( "1200 kV UHV AC National Test Station"- Bina, MP) and was awarded the "IndiaPower-2009 Award" by Council of Power Utilities of India for its contribution in Research & Innovation. Now, it is imperative to mention that this new development makes CG the first Indian company which has successfully developed 2 products of this rating indigenously.


CG is proud today to be the prime partner in India`s dream to develop the UHV technology indigenously.
