Sterlite Power will start a power transmission project in Kashmir valley during the winters. The announcement was made public on Monday.
The power transmission project will ensure that the state doesn’t face any power shortage or cuts during the cold season.
The total area covered by the project is about 414km. The project is a part of the world’s most challenging transmission projects of the world (the Northern Scheme 29).
The operation will ensure that the people of Kashmir Valley will get access to power constantly by augmenting the state's transmission capacity by at least 33 percent.
According to a report, the project was sanctioned two months ahead of the schedule, so that the benefits would be reaped during the winters.
Sterlite Power took the help of helicranes to cope up with the challenges faced in the high altitudes, snow, and inaccessible terrains. The planning was done in such a way that the line’s sustainability towards the elements is very effective so that it doesn’t get damaged during the cold.
According to Pratik Agarwal, CEO of Sterlite Power, the company faced a lot of challenges to complete the project ahead of schedule. The company was among a handful of global transmission developers, currently solving one of the toughest problems in delivering energy.
“The evacuation of 1,000 MW shall play a vital role in addressing the power deficit in the region, especially during winter months,” said Ved Mani Tiwari, CEO, Global Infrastructure of Sterlite Power.
