Sterlite Power project to supply over 1,200 MW electricity to Ranchi and Purulia
Sterlite Power has set another benchmark by commissioning the Purulia-Kharagpur transmission project. The project consists of two 400-kV double circuit lines with a total length of 273 km including the 112-km long Purulia-Ranchi and 161-km long Kharagpur-Chaibasa lines. Sterlite Power will operate and maintain the project, traversing through Jharkhand and West Bengal for 35 years.
With the commissioning of its fifth project, Sterlite Power is now managing a portfolio of 4,063 circuit km of operational transmission lines and two substations spread across 11 states. “The Purulia-Kharagpur transmission project is a new milestone in providing uninterrupted power supply to energy-deficient villages in West Bengal and Jharkhand. Adverse working conditions did not deter our team from addressing the toughest challenges faced during project execution. Sterlite Power is committed to achieving the nation’s ambitious goal to ensure quality power to all,” said Sterlite Power COO Ved Mani Tiwari.
