On November 28, Hitachi Energy, a global technology leader that is advancing a sustainable energy future for all, inaugurated a transformers factory in Bac Ninh.
The factory which specialises in producing liquid-filled power and distribution transformers stands out as a pivotal hub for Hitachi Energy's global transformer production in Vietnam. This expansion empowers utilities, industries, and infrastructure sectors across the Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa to enhance transformer asset performance while minimising environmental impact.
As an example of the business commitment to developing innovative solutions for the energy industry, the factory will produce distribution transformers with Transient Voltage Protection technology. This revolutionary solution significantly enhances the reliability of distribution transformers, offering complete protection against transient voltages in multiple applications like data centres, solar, and wind renewable generation.
With a history of over three decades in Vietnam, Hitachi Energy has played a pivotal role in supporting Vietnam's infrastructure and industry, contributing to the country's energy transformation by integrating more than 30 per cent of its renewable energy into the grid.
“Vietnam’s Power Development Plan sets clear pathways for a carbon-neutral energy system by 2050, including strengthening its position as a leading manufacturing base in the region,” said Chandan Singh, country managing director of Hitachi Energy in Vietnam. “This factory underscores our continued commitment to advancing a sustainable energy future for all.”
The investment also aligns with the company’s global capacity expansion plan to meet the accelerating energy transition demand.
“The Bac Ninh factory inauguration will help us in advancing the world’s energy system to be more sustainable, flexible and secure,” said Bruno Melles, managing director of Business Unit Transformers at Hitachi Energy.
