Apraava Energy secures renewable energy transmission projects in Rajasthan


Apraava Energy, an integrated energy solutions provider, has secured two interstate transmission projects in Rajasthan through tariff-based competitive bidding. It will develop these projects under BOOT (build, own, operate, and transfer) model. 

The projects are part of the scheme to evacuate 20 GW of power from renewable energy zones in Rajasthan under Phase 3. These are Apraava’s first greenfield transmission projects.

Apraava, through its special-purpose vehicle (SPV) Fatehgarh III Transmission, will construct 230 km of 400 kV D/C (double-circuit) transmission line from Fatehgarh 3 to Badla 3 in Rajasthan. Another SPV, Fatehgarh IV Transmission, will build 5×500 MVA pooling substation in Fatehgarh 4 and 22 km of 400 kV D/C transmission line from Fatehgarh 4 to Fatehgarh 3.

Apraava Energy will be responsible for the ownership, financing, development, design, engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, operation and maintenance of the project, and for providing transmission services for a period of 35 years. At the end of the 35 years, the project will be transferred to the central transmission utility (CTU). 

The construction timelines for both projects are 18 months.
