Sterlite Power—a power transmission infrastructure developer—has joined hands with GE T&D India, Unitech Power Transmission, Tata Projects and Associate Power Structures on the execution of its Green Energy Corridor (GEC) project connecting 765/400 kV Lakadia substation to Vadodara substation in Gujarat.
Under the partnership, GE will design, construct, test and commission 765kV gas-insulated substation at Vadodara and 765kV air-insulated substation at Lakadia in Gujarat.
Unitech Power Transmission, Tata Projects and Associate Power Structures, on the other hand, will provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) related support for 343 km of transmission lines for the project.
The Lakadia Vadodara Transmission Project was won by Sterlite Power through tariff-based competitive bidding last year, and involves laying over 300 km of 765 kV double-circuit transmission lines.
Commenting on the partnership, Sterlite Power managing director Pratik Agarwal said, “This Green Energy Corridor project is very special for Sterlite Power since it will help our country to achieve its renewable energy target, and fight climate change by creating cleaner alternative to fossil fuel based energy. With established EPC and OEM partners onboard, we are best prepared to deliver this complex project within the timelines while maintaining highest standards of quality, as well as health and safety of our workforce.”
Sterlite Power is a leading global developer of power transmission infrastructure with projects of over 13,315 circuit km and 23,885 MVA in India and Brazil. It is also the sponsor of IndiGrid, India’s first power sector infrastructure investment trust.
