Mumbai Urja Marg project brought under Pragati portal

Mumbai Urja Marg Ltd (MUML), which is implementing a critical power transmission project in Mumbai, is now part of the Pragati portal, a monitoring platform through which the Prime Minister’s Office oversees the implementation of important state and central projects and directly interacts with the stakeholders through videoconferencing.

Maharashtra’s peak power demand touched 3,600 MW in the 2019 and 2020 summers and is expected to soar to 5,000 MW by 2024-25 and further to 6,000 MW by 2030. The transmission network in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) is inadequate to meet this, as pointed out by the Central Electricity Authority (CEA). Following the 2020 power outages that afflicted Mumbai, CEA underscored the need to hike embedded generation within the city while also boosting the capacity of transmission networks.

MUML will carry more than 2000 MW of additional power through an inter-state transmission system (ISTS) feed to the MMR as well as upgrade and overhaul the existing infrastructure. The inclusion in the Pragati portal will help in resolving key issues and expediting the project development to ensure commencement operations by December 2023.

Pragati is designed for proactive governance through technology-enabled monitoring. In 40 editions of Pragati meetings so far, 319 projects with a total cost of Rs 15.41 trillion have been reviewed.

Ninad Pitale, Project Director, MUML, said, “This development is a testimony of the project’s criticality.”

MUML is an interstate transmission project envisaged the Union Power Ministry, being executed as part of Package C of Western Region Strengthening Scheme – XIX.
