Power Provider

Progress begins with you because, at ABB, you work on technologies that improve people’s lives.

I have more than 100 customers in India, and my work takes me to remote locations in parts of the country that people usually don’t travel to. I test and commission high-voltage transformers on-site to ensure that everything is installed correctly and works as planned before commissioning it to the customer.

My job often has an element of adventure, regardless of the size of a project, whether the client is a large steel producer or a small municipality that needs reliable electrical power. At a power substation in the north of India, it became very cold and we had to be outside in about 4 degrees Celsius for several hours at a time to install and test the transformers. Despite the cold and several other challenges, we finished the project on time. It always makes me very happy to do the first testing of a transformer on-site with my team and the customer. It is a special moment in which we see our hard work pay off and everything come together: the quality of the ABB products, the engineering and testing we have done beforehand in the lab, the excellent teamwork and the optimal solution for the customer’s specific needs. 

While I enjoy working with large corporate customers, it makes me especially proud to help bring electricity to remote areas of my country. To have a direct impact on people’s lives by bringing them reliable, uninterrupted power is very special. Securing the power supply for our nation is a big motivator for me.
