Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL), India's largest power equipment manufacturer is looking for an international joint venture partner to manufacture high capacity transformers in India. The joint venture will be announced in January 2009, and will undertake manufacturing of 765 Kilovolt and 1,200 kv transformers. The company is manufacturing about 400 KV capacities of transformers. BHEL is trying hard to bag orders for higher capacity transformers as the government is planning to increase electricity demand in India to about 1000 billion units by 2012,up from 730 billion units at present. BHEL is the largest manufacturer of transformers in India, and holds about 40 per cent of the domestic transformer market. Its present capacity is about 30,000 MVA which will increase after joint venture with a manufacturing capacity of 45,000 MVA by April 2009. Other major transformer manufacturers who can supply upto 400 kv capacity of transformers include crompton greaves and the state owned transformers and Electricals Kerala Ltd.

AREVA T&D was the first to built 132 kv 90 MVA vegetable oil filled transformer, which is officially switched on by EDF's Energy Networks. This development will help EDF Energy Networks to continue meeting the needs of its customers in the East of England, whilst reducing its impact on the environment. This transformer is filled with Envirotemp FR3 vegetable oil, manufactured by cooper power systems, built in AREVA T&D's power transformer factory as part of EDF Energy Network's Programme to reinforce the electricity network.
Fluid is made from edible Soya beans and is fully bio degradable and has stronger fire-resistance. All these properties help to achieve higher levels of safety, together with major environmental improvements compared to the use of mineral oil. The project required AREVA T&D to manufacture two transformers to the same specification with the only difference being that one filled with FR3 fluid while the other contains traditional mineral oil.
