Sterlite Power today said that it has bagged the Nangalbibra-Bongaigaon inter-state power transmission project worth Rs 324 crore.
“Sterlite Power, a leading private sector power transmission infrastructure developer and solutions provider, has been awarded the Nangalbibra-Bongaigaon interstate power transmission project worth Rs 324 crore through tariff-based competitive bidding (TBCB) by virtue of emerging as the L1 bidder,” a company statement said.
The project consists of a new 220/132 kV substation at Nangalbibra and laying of around 130km of 400kV D/c transmission line connecting Bongaigaon in Assam to Nangalbibra in Meghalaya across the Brahmaputra River. The project will also have around 20km of 132kV D/c line connecting Hatsinghmari in Assam to Ampati in Meghalaya.
As part of its track record, the company has completed the NER-II project, an inter-state transmission scheme spanning across the North East states of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Tripura. It will also leverage its prior experience in implementing river-crossing solutions across the Ganga to address the challenge of long span river crossing across the Brahmaputra River.
With this project, Sterlite Power now has a portfolio of 26 projects across India and Brazil, which includes those under various stages of development and those that have been sold. The company said that it is focused on integrating renewable energy sources to the transmission grids.
