PTI New Delhi | Updated on January 12, 2018


State-run BHEL has bagged a Rs 96-crore order from Power Grid Corporation of India for augmentation of three extra high voltage (EHV) sub-stations on a turnkey basis in Karnataka.

“Valued at Rs 96 crore, the order has been won against stiff competition in an ADB-funded international competitive bidding tender,” the state-run engineering major said in a statement today.

According to the statement, the sub-stations to be augmented are 400/220 kV sub-station at Tumkur (Pavagada), 400kV at Mysuru and 400/220 kV at Tumkur (Vasantnarsapur).

The augmentation of 400/220 kV sub-station facilities are linked with the transmission system being set up for the evacuation of solar power and shall play a key role for the transfer of renewable energy (RE) power from India’s largest ultra mega solar power park (2,000 MW) phase-II (part-A) to be set-up at Tumkur (Pavagada) district on 10,000 acres of land.

The key EHV equipment for these sub-stations like 125 MVAr and 80 MVAr reactors, including other sub-station equipment, will be supplied from BHEL’s manufacturing units at Bhopal and Bengaluru. The sub-stations are slated for commissioning in a schedule of 18 months.

Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) is also executing key 765 kV sub-station orders from PowerGrid of mega capacities in Gujarat and Rajasthan for evacuation of RE (renewable energy) power from these states under the Green Energy Corridor Scheme.
