The Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), a maharatna undertaking, has bagged a mega order from Power Grid for the augmentation of three extra high voltage (EHV) substations in Karnataka on turnkey basis.
Valued at Rs 96 crore, the order has been won against stiff competition in an ADB-funded International Competitive Bidding (ICB) tender, a BHEL statement said.
The move is being seen as a major landmark for the BHEL to further consolidate its leadership presence in the domain of green energy linked transmission corridor.
The substations to be augmented include 400/220kV substation at Tumkur (Pavagada), 400kV at Mysore and 400/220kV at Tumkur (Vasantnarsapur).
The augmentation of 400/220kV substation facilities is linked with the transmission system being set up for evacuation of solar power and shall play a key role for transfer of renewable energy power from India’s largest Ultra Mega Solar Power Park (2000 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 substations will be supplied from BHEL’s manufacturing units at Bhopal and Bangalore. The substations are slated for commissioning within 18 months.
BHEL is also currently executing key 765kV substation orders from Power Grid of mega capacities in Gujarat and Rajasthan for evacuation of RE power from these states under the Green Energy Corridor Scheme.
