Global Business Expansion
We are actively participating in overseas projects and developing various new businesses by drawing on the kind of technological competence and expertise that have achieved steady electricity supply in super overcrowded areas.
Due to increased concerns regarding improvements to the reliability of power supply systems and environmental issues, there is a growing need for high-quality electrical infrastructure development all over the world.
Taking full advantage of our vast experience in the industry, we are actively engaging in consulting for the electric power business.
Engineering Service for the construction UGSS in Bangladesh
TEPCO Power Grid, Inc. has been providing Engineering Services for the construction of Underground Substations (UGSS) “Gulshan” in Dhaka, Bangladesh since 2019. This UGSS construction is unique in that it is the first of its kind in Dhaka and Gas Insulated Transformers (GITs) will be adopted for fire safety.
Power Quality Improvement Project in Laos that entails Upgrading Grid Code and Strengthening Enforcement Systems
In Laos, hydroelectricity is the main source of power production, and the country exports power to adjacent nations (Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia), but export volume is limited due to the substandard planning and operation of power grids thereby making it difficult to further increase power exports in conjunction with supply and demand conditions both in Laos and neighboring countries. Since February 2021, TEPCO HD, TEPCO PG, Tokyo Electric Power Services and Nippon Koei have been leveraging technologies for grid planning and operation that they have cultivated in Japan’s electricity industry and also through overseas consulting to establish a Grid Code that will enable players in Laos’s power industry, such as the Ministry of Energy and Mining, and Électricité du Laos (EDL), to suitably plan and operate power grids, while also contributing to the realization of an autonomous and stable wide-area linkage system in Laos.
Lumphini Underground Substation Project in Thailand
Metropolitan Electricity Authority (“MEA”) plans to construct a new underground substation in coincidence with landscape projects to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Lumphini Park in 2025. Constructing the underground substation below the park is necessary to ensure safety and preserve the surrounding environment. TEPCO PG was awarded this project because of its 40+ years of experience with the design, construction, operation and maintenance of underground substations in Japan and overseas, and its work on the “Preliminary Feasibility Study for Robust and Compact Underground Substations in Bangkok” which was sponsored by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
During this project, TEPCO PG will propose basic underground substation designs that take into account local safety and the surrounding environment, and review equipment specifications and layout drawings for the underground substation. Through this work, TEPCO PG will help MEA realize its plan to construct an underground substation in a public place.
Technical Support for Underground Substation Construction Project in Singapore
The SP Group is constructing an underground substation in Labrador, which is positioned as a new mixed-use district in accordance with Singapore's urban renewal plan to utilize limited amounts of usable land.
Acting as a consultant, TEPCO PG is providing the SP Group with technical support in the form of the deliberation of specifications for equipment and cables required for an underground substation, technical assessments of bidders, and coordination between equipment and building contractors.
Located just three meters above sea level, over half the islands making up the Republic of Kiribati are in immediate danger from submergence due to the recent rising sea levels caused by global warming. In response to this, efforts are being made to introduce eco-friendly solar power generation.
By spreading Japanese-style facility design and operational know-how to power companies throughout Vietnam, we hope that they can create optimum facilities and improve the reliability of their power supply systems.
Sri Lanka Electric Power Master Plan Formulation Project
In Sri Lanka, electricity consumption has increased by around 4% annually due to increased economic growth in recent years. Ensuring stable power supply and system maintenance has become an important issue.
In this project, we proposed an electric power master plan up to the year 2040 that includes plans for the development of power generation, transmission, and distribution facilities reflecting the latest technology trends.
Support for the Egyptian Electricity Distribution System Improvement Project
As part of the Egyptian Electricity Distribution System Improvement Project, we helped three Egyptian electrical power corporations to deploy smart meters by supporting the creation of basic design drawings and bidding documents in the instrumentation, communication, and system fields.
Technical Support for Phase 2 of the Madhya Pradesh Transmission System Modernization Project in India
In Madhya Pradesh state in central India, it is predicted that the demand for electric power will increase drastically due to growing levels of industrialization and urbanization. Therefore, enhancement of the transmission network is an urgent issue. Acting as a consultant, we participated in the formulation of the Madhya Pradesh Transmission System Modernization Project headed by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
Demonstration Project for a Wind Energy System and Renewable Energy Management System on Remote Islands in the Maldives
We examined the introduction of a power supply system that combines medium-sized wind power generators that can be operated on a small scale even on tiny islands and a renewable energy management system that can stabilize the power grid in the Maldives Republic that consists of over one thousand separate islands.
Project to Establish an Umbrella Organization in the ASEAN Region
In order to establish an umbrella organization in the ASEAN region for the Organization for Cross-regional Coordination of Transmission Operators, Japan (OCCTO), we are carrying out discussions with ASEAN delegates to decide on conditions for the creation of guidelines mainly focusing on system operation.
We are actively participating in overseas projects related to electric power and aim to achieve business development in various areas.
Offshore Transmission Owner (OFTO) Project in United Kingdom
The offshore electricity transmission asset is comprised of cables and substations that connect with the Triton Knoll Offshore Windfarm located approximately 32km from the UK shoreline. A consortium of Equitix Limited and TEPCO PG will be responsible for electricity transmission from 2023 following successful acquisition [of the asset] and the approval of an offshore transmission owner license by the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets.
Deep C Green Energy
TEPCO PG invested in the Vietnamese power distribution and retail company, Deep C Green Energy, in December 2018.
By utilizing the technologies and know-how it has accumulated in Japan, TEPCO PG is able to provide higher quality and more reliable electricity to clients in the DEEP C Industrial Zones.
Greenway Grid Global
Greenway Grid Global is a JV in Singapore established by TEPCO-PG and Chubu Electric Power etc.
With the vision of "Bringing Happiness to tthe World," they are committed to investing in SDGs, carbon neutrality, etc., learning from new technologies, such as microgrids in Southeast Asia, and sponsoring programs to cultivate future leaders that hold the key to transformation.
Zenobe Battery Storage Project in the United Kingdom
TEPCO PG and JERA Co., Inc are investing up to GBP 25 million in Zenobe Energy Limited (“Zenobe Energy”), a battery storage company based in the United Kingdom.
The investment in Zenobe Energy will enhance TEPCO PG’s ability to propose diverse battery storage solutions that include ancillary services. TEPCO PG plans to apply the know-how gained from the UK power business to its business in Japan.
We have been expanding our operations through alliances with manufacturers, design companies, and other partners. We also aim to develop business that takes advantage of our comprehensive range of available strengths from management to maintenance.
