Sterlite Power awarded power augmentation project in West Bengal
Delhi, 09 January 2019: Sterlite Power has been awarded a power augmentation project across seven districts of West Bengal (Purba Medinipur, Mushidabad, Burdwan, Kolkata, North 24 Paragnas, South 24 Paragnas, Hoogly). The line extends on the 132kV D/C New Haldia - Haldia NIZ, 132kV D/C KTPS -Tamluk , 132kV D/C Gokarna – Kuli, 132kV Kasba - KLC - Salt Lake, 132kV D/C Kasba- Sonarpur, 132kV NTAA III - Salt Lake GLS, 220kV New Chanditala – Rishra route.
Manish Agarwal, CEO, Sterlite Power – Solutions Business, said, “Sterlite Power has a long association of working in West Bengal. We have been actively engaged in uprating of lines from PGCIL Malda to WBSETCL Malda; Gokarna to Behrampur and the Durgapur – Ukhra. Currently, there is a transmission capacity shortage of ~ 150 MW power in the New Kolkata region. The upgraded line will ensure reliable access to power in this part of the region.”
Rapid urbanization and longer commissioning time of greenfield transmission projects has resulted in more ‘upgrade’ and ‘uprate’ projects of existing lines. Sterlite Power’s Solution business addresses time and space issues through its innovative business model.
