ABB is a leading power and automation technology company that offers a wide range of products, services, and systems. It operates in four business segments, namely, power grids, electrification products, discrete automation and motion, and process automation. The company manufactures instrument transformers through its power grids segment, which accounted for 31% of the company’s total net sales in 2016. This segment serves utilities and the owners and operators of transmission and distribution networks along with the industrial, transportation, and infrastructure customers. In October 2017, ABB received a contract from EDF Energy to build the power transmission infrastructure for the Hinkley Point C power plant in Somerset, England. The scope of the project is to supply six 700 MVA generator transformers, six auxiliary transformers, a 400 kV gas insulated switchgear, and control and MicroScada systems. The power plant is expected to generate 7% of Britain's electricity.
GE is one of the leading technology and financial services companies that manufactures products for the generation, transmission and distribution, control, and utilization of electricity. It is transforming the industry with software-defined machines and solutions. Since its inception, the company has adopted inorganic growth strategies to broaden its business and improve the scope of activities.
