PM Inaugurated Transmission Projects at Arunachal Pradesh being Implemented by POWERGRID

 

Itanagar: Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone for 7 EHV Sub-stations and 24 LT Sub-stations today on 9th February 2019 in Itanagar, Arunachal Pradesh. The project is being implemented by Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (POWERGRID) a ‘Navratna’ Company under Ministry of Power, Government of India.
 
On this occasion, PM, said, 'It’ll improve the state power sector, facilitate the development of small scale/cottage industries/tourism in the state by enabling quality supply of power.' The present per capita power consumption of state is 233 kwhr against the national average of 1075 kWh. The existing Power Transmission and Distribution system needed a major reconstruction and integration with National Grid to meet the present and future load requirement as well as to fuel faster economic growth.
 
The scheme comprises construction of 24 new 132/33 kV (EHV) Sub-stations with 529 MVA transformation capacity and 70 new 33/11 kV Distribution Sub-stations with 465 MVA transformation capacity apart from laying of 1917 kms of 132 kV Transmission Lines and 1923 kms of 33 kV Lines.
 
Contracts for construction of 18 Nos. 132/33 kV Sub-stations, 1716 Kms of 132 kV Transmission Lines and 46 Nos. 33/11 kV Sub-stations with as-sociated 33 kV lines of 1202 kms have been awarded. The construction activities in 13 Nos. 132/33 kV Sub-stations, 21 Nos. 33/11 kV Sub-stations and associated lines under the awarded contracts have already been commenced.
 
It will also augment and improve the present distribution system through 33 kV & 11 kV lines to villages and towns including remote and border areas ensuring strong and reliable transmission & distribution system in the state in coming years (present load is about 138 MW, projected load as per 19th EPS is 482 MW by 2026-27). 
 
The monetary saving due to the reduction in operation of Diesel Generating Plants will lead to a better life for the people of the region and also help in the protection of the environment. It will not only help minimize reliance on diesel but will also save import expenditure in foreign currency in-curred on crude oil, thereby benefiting the state exchequer.
 
The project will also facilitate in the development of small scale-cottage industries & tourism in the region and boost socio-economic growth by enabling supply of quality power. It will give impetus to the integration of upcoming Hydro Power Generating Plants in Arunachal Pradesh with the National Grid and will facilitate lying of the optical fibre (33 kV) to help to extend communication facility to the small towns and villages. It shall boost local economy of the entire state with infusion of about Rs. 6501 Crore and also by creating opportunities for long-term support of the new infrastructure.
 
This project is a major step towards meeting the national objectives of affordable 24X7 power to all, especially in the remote locations of Arunachal Pradesh for inclusive growth through enhancement in access of consumers to Grid-connected power supply, its availability, adequacy, reliability and affordability. This shall also help in bringing the per capita power consumption of the state closer to the national average.
The Comprehensive Scheme for Strengthening of Transmission & Distribution (T&D) Systems in Arunachal Pradesh was sanctioned on 10th October 2014 under Central Sector Plan Scheme of Ministry of Power, Govt. of India at an estimated cost of Rs. 3,199.45 Crores (at April 2013 price level) to be funded by Govt. of India.
 
The event was attended by a graceful gathering at Itanagar, Arunachal Pradesh, in the gracious presence of Brigadier (Dr.) B.D. Mishra (Retd.), Governor, Arunachal Pradesh, Shri Tenzing Norbu Thongdok, Speaker, Arunachal Pradesh, Shri Pema Khandu,  Chief Minister, Arunachal Pradesh, Shri Kiren Rijiju, Union Minister of State for Home Affairs, along with Shri Chowna Mein, Deputy Chief Minister, Arunachal Pradesh.

Chauhan, Executive Director (NERPSIP) POWERGRID, Shri Rajiv Kumar, Shri Anantha Sarma, ED (NERTS), Shri T. C. Sarmah, ED (BDD) apart from other senior officials of state government and POWERGRID.
