To ensure reliable power supply amidst pandemic, Maharatna company Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd (PGCIL) has commissioned a 10 MVA power transformer at Referral Hospital Sub-station, at Dimapur in a short span of time.

The move came after the Government of Nagaland, and its Department of Power Nagaland (DoPN) urged PGCIL to commission a transformer to reduce the instances of power interruptions and ensure efficient power supply to Nagaland’s only oxygen plant.

Thus, PGCIL team, within two days, has successfully commissioned the transformer, which would lead to reliable power supply to oxygen plant as well as nearby areas.

The Power Ministry in a statement said that, this new power transformer at 33/11 kV Referral Hospital Nagaland will add to the power system reliability of BMA’s Liquid Plant situated at Naga United village, which was earlier fed by 5 MVA Transformer.

By commissioning the transformer, quality power is now available to oxygen plant round-the-clock through 11 kV outgoing Rongmei feeder of Sub-station.

This work was completed as part of the North Eastern Region Power System Improvement Project (NERPSIP), a Central sector plan scheme of the Ministry of Power, Government of India.

NERPSIP is being implemented via PGCIL, in association with 6 beneficiary North Eastern states namely, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, and Tripura.

The main objective of the project is Government of India’s commitment for the total economic development of North Eastern Region and to strengthen the Intra-State transmission & distribution infrastructure in the North East region. 

As per the Power Ministry, implementation of this scheme will create a reliable power grid and improve NER States’ connectivity to the upcoming load centers, and thus extend the benefits of the grid connected power to all categories of consumers in North Eastern region.
