Working at POWERGRID
Our core business is the transmission of electric power. As on 28th February 2014, we own and operate more than 1,05,343 Ckt. kms network of transmission lines, 1,97,648 MVA transformation capacity and 178nos. substations that constitutes most of India’s interstate and inter-regional electric power transmission system and carries electric power across India.
As on April’ 1st, 2012, we have 80 transmission projects in various stages of implementation which include 22 nos. Generation linked Projects with cost of approx. Rs. 51,890 Crores, 33 nos. system strengthening Projects with cost of approx. Rs. 22322 Crores & 25 nos. Projects for IPPs/ LTOA with cost of approx. Rs. 43,104 Crores. These projects involve approximately 51,523 circuit kilometers of transmission lines and 84 substations with a total power transformation capacity of approximately 159355 MVA and 10250 MW of HVDC. The budgeted cost of these projects is Rs. 117316 Crores. POWERGRID has undertaken development of 11 nos. High Capacity Transmission Corridors to facilitate power transfer from various upcoming IPP generation projects. Most of these generation projects are envisaged in the State of Orissa, Chhattiagrh, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Sikkim, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu etc. The transmission corridors mainly comprise of high capacity 765kV double circuit line, ±800kV HVDC system, 765/400kV Pooling Stations at different locations. In addition, POWERGRID’s works also involve development of transmission system of 6 UMPPs each of 4000MW capacity as well as other central sector generation projects and grid strengthening schemes. The transmission scheme mainly involves establishment of 765kV AC and 800kV HVDC system. It is envisaged to develop about 50,000 circuit km EHV transmission lines at 400kV and above level and about 60 nos. EHV substations with about 110,000 MVA transformation capacity in next 6-7 years.
