IndiGrid, a power sector infrastructure investment trust (InvIT), today announced that it has operationalized its first greenfield project, Kallam Transmission Ltd (KTL). The project is located at Beed, Maharashtra,

IndiGrid had won the project in December 2021 through the tariff-based competitive bidding (TBCB) mechanism and developed it on a build-own-operate-maintain basis for a period of 35 years.

“KTL consists of one substation of 2 x 500 MVA capacity with 400/220 kV voltages, as well as 10 Bays with a LILO multicircuit line of 18 km,” stated IndiGrid.
