Sterlite Power’s Mumbai Urja Marg Transmission (MUML), successfully commissioned 400 kV Banaskantha, Kansari and Vadavi Transmission lines in Gujarat. The high voltage transmission line will help in the evacuation of about 1,000 MW of renewable power from the pooling station at Bhuj in northern Gujarat to the national grid. In addition to that, the transmission line, which has been commissioned four months ahead of schedule, will significantly augment the available power transmission capacity of the state; taking it from 9,300 MW to 11,200 MW. This critical transmission line, part of the larger Western Region Strengthening Scheme-XIX (WRSS-XIX) and North-Eastern Region Strengthening Scheme-IX (NERSS-IX), will also decongest the regional network by reducing the burden on existing transmission lines comprising 400 kV DC Banaskantha-Veloda, 400 kV SC Bhinmal-Zerda (Kansari) and 400 kV SC Kankroli-Zerda (Kansari). Gujarat significantly contributes toward the renewable energy goals of the country. Against India’s renewable capacity of 90 GW, the state’s contribution stands at approximately 12 GW. On the back of its strong energy infrastructure, Gujarat aims to establish more than 67 GW of renewable energy by 2030. Manish Agarwal, Director & CEO, India Transmission Business, Sterlite Power, said, “We are happy to demonstrate our project execution capabilities by ensuring timely execution of this critical transmission line for the state of Gujarat. The transmission corridors are critical infrastructure for the nation given their importance in connecting the power surplus centres with the power deficit corners. Not only this, but the success of transmission projects is also imperative to India’s RE vision as it is a critical enabler of RE integration into the grid.”
