Sterlite Power has bagged a power augmentation project across seven districts of West Bengal. 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, says, 'Sterlite Power has a long association of working in West Bengal. We have been actively engaged in updating 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 urbanisation and longer commissioning time of greenfield transmission projects have 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.
