Prime Minister Dedicates IPDS Varanasi Project

 

New Delhi/Varanasi: Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi dedicated to the nation, the Integrated Power Distribution Scheme (IPDS) project of Old Kashi in Varanasi district on Tuesday. The project was dedicated in a function in the presence of Hon’ble CM of Uttar Pradesh, Shri Yogi Adityanath and MP, Chandauli, Dr. Mahendra Nath Pandey and other dignitaries from Government of India and the state of Uttar Pradesh. This extensive and complex work, under GoI’s IPDS scheme, has been executed by Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (POWERGRID). POWERGRID acted as a Consultant to Purvanchal Vidyut Vitran Nigam Limited (PUVVNL), and completed the work within the stipulated timeline of two-years. The Rs. 362 crore project has been funded by Government of India and UPPCL in 60:40 ratio respectively. The project, which has been executed with the help of latest available construction techniques, will help in saving energy loss caused due to theft, rain or storm disruption. With the reduction in voltage fluctuations, it will simultaneously also ensure the quality of power. 
 
Major works executed under the scheme included underground cabling of about 1500 km, bifurcation of 52 overloaded feeders in addition to capacity addition of 150 MVA. A total number of 60,000 consumers have been connected to the underground cabling system and 459 distribution transformers in Old Kashi have been linked to the newly laid underground system.
 
The infrastructure created also includes a new state-of-the-art 33/11 kV GIS Sub-station, a first at this capacity, in the busy and highly densely populated Chowk area of Varanasi. This substation has been constructed in an area of around 144 square meters using the GIS (Gas Insulated Switchyard) technology, which requires substantially lower space as compared to conventional substations.  This new substation has considerably brought down the tripping rate, ensuring safe and smooth power supply, reliable and quality power flow, while also leading to reduced complaints related with electricity, in the area.
