TBEA Co., Ltd., previously known as Tebian Electric Apparatus, is a Chinese manufacturer of power transformers and other electrical equipment, and a developer of transmission projects. Along with competitors Tianwei Baobian Electric (TWBB) and the XD Group, it is one of the major Chinese manufacturers of transformers.[1]

International operations[edit]

Equipment manufacturing[edit]

Outside of China, TBEA is also coming up with a manufacturing base for transformers, solar equipments & cables in Karjan Gujarat, India.[2] The Indian division is registered under the name TBEA Energy (India) Pvt Ltd and will cater to India, African, Middle East and other markets.

Construction engineering[edit]

The company builds transformers and also develops transmission lines as an EPC contractor.

In Ethiopia, TBEA was in 2009 awarded the contract to develop the transmission line to Addis Ababa for the Gilgel Gibe III Dam.[3]

In September 2010 in Zambia, the state power company ZESCO signed an EPC contract with TBEA to build 334 million USD 330 kv high voltage transmission lines, which would supply power to Eastern, Luapula, Northern and Muchinga Provinces.[4] The project held a groundbreaking on July 2012.[4] The project is to include two transmissions lines: one from Pensulo substation in Serenje to Kasama via Mpika, another transmission line from Pensulo substation to Chipata via Msoro and extension of the existing Pensulo substation to accommodate the two transmission line bays.[4]


In Tajikistan the company was granted in 2015 a mining license to develop a gold deposit in exchange for construction of a combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Dushanbe.[5] Earlier, in 2013, TBEA had received a license to conduct exploration at the deposit area.[5]
