Sterlite Power has joined hands with GE T&D India, Unitech Power Transmission (UPTL), Tata Projects (TPL) and Associate Power Structures (APSPL). This partnership will implement state of the art OEM & EPC solutions in the execution of its Green Energy Corridor (GEC) project Lakadia Vadodara Transmission Project Limited (LVTPL).
As a part of these partnerships, GE will design, construct, test and commission 765kV GIS substation at Vadodara and 765kV AIS substation at Lakadia in Gujarat. While TPL, APSPL and UPTL will provide EPC related supply, erection, testing and commissioning of 343kms of transmission lines for the project.
Sterlite Power had won this very critical GEC project through tariff-based competitive bidding process last year, which will contribute towards India’s renewable energy target of 175GW by 2022. Renewable energy is indeed the need of the hour to combat climate change and reduce carbon emissions across the globe by creating an alternative to fossil fuel-based energy. Pratik Agarwal, Managing Director, Sterlite Power, said: “This Green Energy Corridor project is special for Sterlite Power since it will help our country to achieve its RE target.”
