WUPPTCL connected with the grid and charged on Wednesday, MEIL added.

According to B Srinivas Reddy, director of MEIL, the total cost of the project which would transmit 13,220 MVA of power is Rs 4,150 crore. “The execution of this project required stringent quality procedures, use of latest technologies, and meticulous planning,” a company statement said.

 

The firm started construction of this project in 2011 on build-own-operate-transfer (BOOT) basis. It was completed in the first week of February 2018. MEIL will shoulder the responsibility of operation and maintenance of the project for the next 35 years.

“In the past, since the power transmission network in the western UP region was not sufficiently established as per the requirements, it led to massive pockets devoid of electric power for hours together. The construction of this project would help relieving such pockets from power scarcity,” it noted, adding that the project is among the first major power projects to be designed using gas insulated substations.
