AREVA’s Transmission and Distribution division (T&D) in the United States has signed an agreement to be the key supplier of single-phase autotransformers to Northeast Utilities (NU) through 2014. This contract amendment is part of an on-going framework agreement originally penned in 2006 providing operational and commercial terms for NU to procure AREVA T&D transformers to support the New England East West Solution (NEEWS) and other capital projects aimed at improving and expanding NU’s 115 to 345 kV network.

Since 2006, AREVA T&D has supplied 20 single-phase transformers as well as three very large three-phase transformers to meet NU’s growing requirements for autotransformers.

Under the terms of the contract, AREVA T&D will build transformers in their factory in Canoas, Brazil, and deliver the transformers to various transmission substations throughout NU’s operating territory in Connecticut, western Massachusetts and New Hampshire. AREVA T&D will also provide the erection and commissioning services via its recently acquired RB Watkins service business.
