ABB Ltd. (Switzerland) is a leading power and automation technology company that offers a wide range of products, services, and systems. It operates in five segments, namely, power products, power systems, low voltage products, discrete automation and motion, and process automation. The company manufactures switchgears through its power products segment. The company is focusing on the strategy of new product developments. In 2014, it produced the world’s first gas-insulated switchgear with a new eco-efficient gas, which is an alternative to Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) possessing 100% lower global warming potential than SF6. In January 2017, ABB won a contract worth USD 640 million to deliver a transmission link, Raigarh-Pugalur 800 kilovolt (kV) Ultra-High-Voltage Direct Current (UHVDC) system that connects Raigarh in Central India to Pugalur in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, India.

Siemens AG (Germany) is a leading manufacturing and engineering company. It operates its business through nine segments, namely, power and gas, healthcare, energy management, digital factory, process industries and drives, mobility, building technologies, wind power and renewables, and financial services. The low and medium voltage division under the energy management segment caters to electrical grid operators, large industrial electricity consumers, and construction markets. It offers medium and low voltage electrical power equipment, which includes distribution switchgears, control gears, circuit breakers, and components for distributing and switching electrical power. The power transmission division under the energy business segment covers high voltage transmission solutions, power and distribution transformers, high voltage switching, non-switching products and systems, and AC and DC transmission systems. In May 2017, Siemens received a USD 867 million contract from Qatar General Water & Electricity Corporation (KAHRAMAA) for the expansion of the Qatar power transmission network which includes 35 turnkey super and primary sub-stations for Phase 13 of the Qatar Power Transmission System Expansion project.
