Sterlite Power bags LOI for clean energy transmission project in Rajasthan

Sterlite Power, a leading power transmission company in India and Brazil, has won the contract for 20 GW, phase III, Part-F transmission project in Rajasthan. The company has received a letter of intent (LOI) from REC Power Development and Consultancy Limited. The project has been won under tariff-based competitive bidding process. The project will be developed on the basis of build, own, operate, transfer model for a period of 35 years.

The project entails building three essential parts: a 350 km long transmission line, connecting 765 kV transmission corridor from Fatehgarh III’s renewable energy zone to the substation at Beawar, a 3,000 MVA 765/400 kV substation at Beawar, and two line-in line-out lines totalling about 120 km in length. The project also involves the installation of the STATCOM system at the Fatehgarh III substation. The company is India’s first private transmission infrastructure developer to implement a STATCOM. This order is company’s second foray into transmission projects for green energy in the state of Rajasthan.

In March 2023, Sterlite Power won the transmission project for evacuation of power from renewable energy zones in Rajasthan under Phase-III Part G.

In the same month, Sterlite Power announced the successful commissioning of its green energy corridor project named Lakadia-Vadodara Transmission Project Limited. The project intended to deliver more than 5,000 MW of power from renewable rich regions of Bhuj and Kutch to the national grid.
