Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has received an order from Power Grid Corporation of India Limited for the augmentation of three extra high voltage (EHV) substations in Karnataka on a turnkey basis. The Rs 960 million order has been won under the Asian Development Bank (ADB)-funded international competitive bidding tender and is part of the green energy-linked transmission corridor project. The substations to be augmented include the 400/220 kV substation at Tumkur (Pavagada), 400 kV substation at Mysore and 400/220 kV substation at Tumkur (Vasantnarsapur). The augmentation of the 400/220 kV substation facilities is linked with the transmission system being set up for the evacuation of solar power and will aid the transfer of power from the 2,000 MW solar park to be set up in Tumkur’s Pavagada district. The key EHV equipment for these substations, which are slated for commissioning within 18 months, will be supplied from BHEL’s manufacturing units at Bhopal and Bengaluru.
