Megha Engineering Infrastructure Limited (MEIL) has made it into Limca Book of National Records and Asia Book of Records for completing a power sub-station in a record time of 7 months.

NP Kunta sub-station was taken up to connect Ultra Mega Solar Power Plant built in Ananthapur with Power Grid, to facilitate supply of 1500 MW of electricity.

The infrastructure major managed to complete the project five months ahead of the scheduled deadline fulfilling all the quality parameters.

Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (PGCIL), for which this project was built, has appreciated MEIL performance and awarded ‘Best Debutant Award.’

Earlier achievement

Earlier, MEIL had entered Limca Book of Records for completing the prestigious Pattiseema Lift Irrigation project in record time.

Construction work for 400/220 KV Power Sub Station at NP Kunta started in September 2015 and completed in April 2016.

“Normally it takes 15-18 months for execution of such projects, but MEIL could complete it within 7 months as per Power Grid Corporation requirements. To achieve this, we mobilised additional resources, machinery and deployed field staff for three shifts (24 hours). Power is being supplied through this sub-station for the last 3 years. It is a matter of pride the N P Kunta sub-station entered Limca Book of Records,” B Srinivas Reddy, Director, MEIL, said.
