These new converter stations, which will interconnect the power grids of Dongguang and Zengcheng districts, will be the largest ever built in the world and will ensure a secure supply of power to the Greater Bay Area, thus promoting the region’s economic and social development.

The Group was chosen after a tender process lasting several months, based on the flawless reliability assurances required for this type of equipment, which is used in particularly demanding environments and conditions.
