PM Dedicates POWERGRID 765 - 400 kV Sub-station Orai

 

Jhansi: Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, dedicated POWERGRID 765/400 kV Orai Sub-station & 765 kV Aligarh Sub-station and associated lines at a mega event held in Jhansi on 15th February, as part of Transmission System for inter-regional strengthening scheme for Western Region (WR) and Northern Region (NR) (Part-B).
 
In his Adress PM said, 'To solve the problem of electricity, the transmission system has been improved. Now along with Bundelkhand, the power system will be improved in many areas of Western UP. Power generated will be transmitted to different regions through the Western and Northern grid.'
 
The project involves establishment of Extra High Voltage (EHV) Sub-stations at Orai Gas Insulated Sub-station (GIS) & Aligarh Gas Insulated Sub-station (GIS) along with high capacity power transmission corridor between northern and western grids. It will strengthen the inter-regional transmission corridor and facilitate the reliable supply of power to Orai, Aligarh & adjoining areas of Western UP and Bundelkhand.
 
Apart from enhancing power transfer capability between western region & northern region grids to the tune of 2700 MW, it will also aid transfer of power from Sasan and Vindhyachal generation complexes in the western region to load centres in western and northern regions.
 
This project constructed by Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (POWERGRID), a Navratna Company of Government of India, under Ministry of Power, will make Orai a key Sub-station to feed the demand of Orai and adjoining areas of western UP and Bundelkhand region. It will also give huge boost to the tourism sector and will enhance socio-economic development, as quality power will be distributed to homes, agricultural setups, business establishments and industries of the region. The cost of the project is about Rs. 4976 Crore.
 
The event was attended by a graceful gathering in Jhansi, in the gracious presence of Shri Ram Naik, the Governor, Uttar Pradesh, Shri Yogi Adityanath,  CM, Uttar Pradesh, Sushri Uma Bharti, Union Minister for Drinking Water and Sanitation, and other  MPs and MLAs of Uttar Pradesh government.
