CTC Global is pleased to announce that we are opening our fifth ACCC Conductor core manufacturing facility in Pune, India later this year. J.D. Sitton, CTC Global’s Chief Executive Officer made the official announcement at the Economic Times Energy Leadership Summit in New Delhi on June 20th.
Mr. Sitton stated: “With more than 200 ACCC® Conductor installations completed in India so far – and with growing demand – we have decided to invest in a local ACCC® Core production facility and workforce to better serve our ACCC® Conductor manufacturing partners and their utility and industrial customers in India and southeast Asia.”
CTC Global selected Pune as the location for the new facility due to its position as a key manufacturing hub in India with excellent transportation links. Pune also has a very large and well educated workforce and its industrial development parks are world class.
The new facility joins CTC Global’s four other core manufacturing facilities in the United States, South America, Indonesia and China to serve growing demand, worldwide.
Hitesh Mundhada, CTC Global’s Vice President of South East Asia added: “India is aiming for a non-fossil fuel based installed generation capacity of 500 GW by 2030. This will require connecting the areas with high renewable energy potential to the interstate transmission system so the power generated can be delivered to load centers. The high-performance ACCC® Conductor is ideally suited to support this and other critical initiatives.”
To date, CTC Global’s manufacturing partners in India: Sterlite Power, Gupta Power and Apar Industries have delivered over 18,000 kilometers of ACCC® Conductors to major utilities in 22 Indian States and 2 territories. Please watch the brief video
