Sterlite Power Commissions Rs 3,000 Crore Kashmir Transmission Project
Power transmission infrastructure developer Sterlite Power today announced it has commissioned a Rs. 3,000 crore project through its SPV NRSS XXIX Transmission Limited for evacuation of electricity in Jammu & Kashmir two months ahead of schedule.
The 414-kilometre Northern Region System Strengthening (NRSS)-29 project will ensure reliable power access for the valley by augmenting the state’s power transmission capacity by at least 33 per cent.
“This transmission line can deliver an incremental 1,000-Megawatt power to the valley. The company deployed helicranes in the Pir Panjal range to overcome challenges of high altitude, snow and inaccessible terrains, adding proper planning helped the firm ensure the line can sustain the load during the harsh winter season in the Valley.
Sterlite Power currently operates power transmission infrastructure with projects of over 12,500 circuit kilometre and 20,000 Mega Volt Ampere (MVA) capacity in India and Brazil.
