Chandigarh, Mar 17 (UNI) The Haryana Vidyut Prasarn Nigam (HVPN) has completed the construction work of its 132 KV substation at Bhattu at a cost of Rs seven crore.
An official spokesman for the Haryana Power Utilities said here today that two transformers of 16 MVA each set up at the substation have been connected to 220 KV substation, Fatehabad by erecting a 15 kilometer long 132 KV transmission line to get electricity and feed consumers of 22 villages through eight feeders of 11 KV level.
Commissioning of the substation would benefit 13,500 consumers of the area including 415 tube wells, 20 industries and 30 water works.
Earlier, there was a 33 KV substation to feed the area through four feeders of 11KV level. The capacity of the substation had become inadequate due to increased load in the area.
Now, with the construction of 132 KV substation at Bhattu, the capacity has become sufficient to feed the consumers through eight feeders of 11 KV level which are being created by the DHBVN by segregating all the four existing over loaded and the lengthier four feeders.
The feeders are being segregated at a cost about Rs six crore and work is likely to be completed soon, the spokesman said.
