Chandigarh, Jan 2 (UNI) The Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) and the Haryana Vidyut Prasaran Nigam (HVPN) plan to strengthen power transmission and distribution system in district Bhiwani at a cost of Rs 345 crore.
A spokesman of DHBVN said here today that under this ambitious plan, the Nigam will construct 19 new substations of various levels and augment capacity of 12 existing substations, to strengthen power transmission system.
The new substations include a 220 KV substation at Isharwal and 132 KV substations at Haluwas to be constructed by the Haryana Vidyut Parsaran Nigam.
DHBVN would construct 17 substations of 33KV level at Siswala, Budhera, Mandola, Pichopa, Pataudi, Kakroli, Chhapar, Singhani, Kari-Dharni, Baralu, Alampur, Bapora, Hasan, Kheri Batar and Chahar-Kalan.

To strengthen power distribution system in the district, DHBVN plans to rehabilitate 48 overloaded and lengthier feeders by dividing each feeder into two or three feeders of proper load and length, at a cost of Rs 6 crore.
During rehabilitation of the feeders, their complete system would be renovated.
To ensure regular and uninterrupted power supply during fixed hours to the agriculture sector and the domestic sector in rural area of the district, domestic and agriculture load of 61 feeders of 11KV level would be segregated at a cost of Rs.38 crore.
The work has already been allocated to the contractors.
DHBVN plans to set up 3000 new distribution transformers in the district and augment capacity of 400 existing transformers of different capacity. During last over two years, it has added about 3500 distribution transformers in the existing dens net work. It plans to add power distribution lines of a length of 1600 KM.
In addition, DHBVN will construct 488 KM distribution lines and set up 586 distribution transformers under the Rajiv Gandhi Gramin Vidyutikaran Yojna ((RGGVY).
All the villages in district Bhiwani would be provided high voltage distribution system (HVDS) or low voltage distribution system (LVDS) so as to provide uninterrupted supply at a better voltage level. The villages having less than 300 connections will be provided with LVDS system while, the villages having more than 300 connections will be provided HVDS.
During conversion of the present distribution system into HVDS or LVDS, complete requirement of distribution transformers in the villages will be met with.
