The high voltage transmission line will help in the evacuation of ~1000 MW of renewable power from the pooling station at Bhuj in northern Gujarat to the national grid.
Besides, the transmission line will significantly augment the available power transmission capacity of the state; taking it from 9300 MW to 11200 MW.
This critical transmission line, part of the larger Western Region Strengthening Scheme-XIX (WRSS-XIX) and North-Eastern Region Strengthening Scheme-IX (NERSS-IX), will also decongest the regional network by reducing the burden on existing transmission lines comprising 400kV D/C Banaskantha-Veloda, 400kV S/C Bhinmal-Zerda (Kansari) and 400kV S/C Kankroli-Zerda (Kansari).
Commenting on the development, Manish Agarwal, Director & CEO of India Transmission Business at Sterlite Power, said, “We are happy to demonstrate our project execution capabilities by ensuring timely execution of this critical transmission line for the state of Gujarat. The transmission corridors are critical infrastructure for the nation given their importance in connecting the power surplus centres with the power deficit corners. Not only this, but success of transmission projects is also imperative to India’s RE vision as it is a critical enabler of RE integration into the grid.”
In June 2020, the company acquired the MUML SPV to execute this large Inter-State Transmission System (ISTS) project.
Meanwhile, the entire debt funding of Rs 2,070 crore for the project has been provided by Power Finance Corporation Ltd (PFC).
