World’s biggest Power Transmission & Distribution Expo in India – ELECRAMA-2010
India power sector demands an investment of US$ 600 Bn by 2017
Power sector companies in across the globe involved in electrical and electronics fields are invited to take part in the ELECRAMA 2010 exhibition to be held in Mumbai and take advantage of an multi-billion dollar opportunity to network and benefit from the stated goal of “Power for All by 2012,” by the Ministry of Power, Government of India.
India’s demand for power in the next 10 years is likely to soar to about 3,35 GW by 2017. This has necessitated a scope for greater capacity additions and a plethora of distribution projects - across high voltage sub stations, HVDC projects, automation engineering projects and EPC.
ELECRAMA-2010, organized by the Indian Electrical and Electronics Manufacturers Association (IEEMA), will take place from January 20-24, 2010 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai.
ELECRAMA-2010 is a biennial trade exhibition on electrical and industrial electronics equipment. The ELECRAMA expo now entering into its 9th edition is organized by IEEMA (which has to its credit over two decades of experience of handling this expo). The expo presents a common platform showcasing power equipment manufactures – switchgear, transformers, cable, conductors, winding wires right up to the segment of power electronics and design & consultancy. IEEMA the representative of India’s manufacturers of electrical, professional electronics and allied equipment with over 650 members has a combined annual turnover of over US $ 22 billion. It represents more than 90% of all India production of electrical equipment.
“The Ministry of Power, India is poised for a total capacity addition of 78,577 MW as planned for the XIth Five-Year Plan (2007-12) which should result in substantial investments in the power generation sector. ELECRAMA brings together participants from Europe, America, ASEAN and Middle East – to explore opportunities in technology partnership, open up investment opportunities and eventually add value to their business portfolio”, said Murali Venkatraman, President of IEEMA.
The future of Power business is aptly amplified by this world’s largest E&E expo which in the past had generated trade enquiries estimated at about US$ 900 million (including orders, joint ventures, strategic investments, supply contracts, brand sales & other trade opportunities). ELECRAMA is the world's largest T&D congregation which brings together generations, transmission & distribution companies across multiple geographies. This expo will offer the best of products and services spanning the voltage spectrum from low voltage to 1,200 kV technology.
“Amidst a global economic downturn, India has an expected growth rate of 7 per cent, currently the highest projection for any world economy. If power biz companies & infrastructure experts are not at ELECRAMA, India, it will mean a loss of a big business opportunity”, added S.P. More, Director General of IEEMA. The trade exhibition is approved by the Indian Trade Promotion Organization and supported by the Ministry of Power. IEEMA has organized eight successful editions of ELECRAMA over the last 15 years. ELECRAMA is approved by UFI and is ISO certified.
The five-day exhibition spans over an area of more than 60,000 sq.m and is expected to host 1,000 exhibitors and 50,000 business visitors from 40 countries, who would have an opportunity to make strategic alliances and collaborations worth billions of dollars. In addition, there will be country pavilions from Germany, Spain, China, Taiwan and Korea.
India has a plethora of investment opportunities in the oil and gas sector and could even provide raw material for this country's nuclear power plants. The opportunities are open for joint projects, especially in key sectors like nuclear energy, thermal power, oil and gas, petrochemicals and pharmaceuticals.
