The Khargone Transmission Limited (KTL) project gets a boost as Sterlite Power commissions 765kV Khandwa substation in Madhya Pradesh which is a part of the KTL project. The commissioning of the Khandwa Substation will help in regulating the high voltage 1320 MW power from Khargone Power Plant to further distribute it downstream to 50 million households across Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Gujarat.
Sterlite Power bagged Rs 1,370 crore in the Khargone Transmission project in 2015 through a tariff-based competitive bidding process which was executed under the Build, Own, Operate and Maintain (BOOM) model. Sterlite Power has so far commissioned 5 out of 6 elements in the project – 765kV substation at Khandwa, 765kV DC KhandwaIndore transmission line, 400 kV DC Khandwa–Khargone transmission line, 400kV Line in line out (LILO) and Dhule bay extension. With these elements charged, KTL is already generating 55.55 per cent revenue in tariffs.
