Apraava Energy secures two clean energy interstate transmission projects in Rajasthan

The Apraava Energy has secured two interstate transmission projects in Rajasthan. The projects have been won under a tariff-based competitive bidding process and will be constructed on the basis of build, own, operate and transfer model. The scope of work under the project includes ownership, financing, development, design, engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, and operations and maintenance. Furthermore, the company will provide transmission services for a period of 35 years, at the end of which, the project will be passed to the Central Transmission Utility. The commissioning timeline for both the projects is scheduled to be 18 months. These are the first greenfield transmission projects undertaken by the Apraava Energy.  The projects are a part of the Phase 3 plan to evacuate 20 GW of power from renewable energy zones in Rajasthan.

Apraava’s SPV, Fatehgarh III Transmission Limited will be responsible to construct 230 km long transmission line, connecting 400 kV DC transmission line from Fatehgarh 3 to Badla 3. Meanwhile, another SPV, Fatehgarh IV Transmission Limited will be responsible to construct a 5×500 MVA pooling substation and a 22 km 400 kV DC transmission line linking Fatehgarh 4 to Fatehgarh 3.

In June 2022, the Apraava Energy completed a solar electrification project that began in 2020 to meet the energy needs of over 3,687 households around its Satpura Transco Private Limited transmission project in Madhya Pradesh. The project was implemented in partnership with SELCO Foundation in 14 villages around Seoni Malwa in Hoshangabad district and Ashta in Sehore district.
