This order win marks Sterlite Power’s second venture into green energy transmission projects in the state of Rajasthan. The project was bid out through Tariff-Based Competitive Bidding (TBCB) process. Sterlite Power received the Letter of Intent (LoI) from REC Power Development and Consultancy Limited – a wholly owned subsidiary of Rural Electricity Corporation, to build the project on BOOT (Build, Own, Operate, Transfer) basis, for a period of 35 years. In March 2023, Sterlite Power won Part G Phase III of the project, titled Fatehgarh III Beawar Transmission Ltd.

The Phase III, Part F project involves construction of three integral components – 1) a 350 km 765kV transmission corridor connecting the renewable energy zone of Fatehgarh III to the substation at Beawar, 2) Construction of a 3000 MVA 765/400kV Substation at Beawar, and 3) construction of two LILO lines, covering approximately 120 km. The project also includes Static Synchronous Compensators (STATCOM) system implementation at Fatehgarh III substation. Sterlite Power will be the first private transmission infrastructure developer in the country to implement a STATCOM.
