Gurgaon, Oct 5 (UNI) In view of the fast growing demand for electricity in Gurgaon district due to rapid development, Haryana Power Utilities have prepared an ambitious Rs 6034 crore long-term plan to augment power transmission and distribution system.
The Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) and the Haryana Vidyut Prasaran Nigam (HVPN) plan to jointly cater to the load demand for the period up to year 2021, as the growth in load demand in the region was 20-25 per cent as compared to 8-10 per cent in other areas of the state, an official spokesman said here today.
Under this huge long term power transmission plan, the DHBVN and the HVPN would construct 486 additional substations including 11 substations of 400 KV level, 32 of 220 KV, seven of 66 KV and 436 of 33 KV level. As many as 124 substations of 2775 MVA capacity will be constructed by the year 2011-12 while 192 substations of a transformation capacity of 4000 MVA and 170 substations of 4000 MVA capacity will be set up during the period from 2012 to 2016 and 2016 to 2021 respectively.
Presently, there wer five 220 KV substations of 960 MVA transformation capacity in Gurgaon feeding 50 power transformers at 24 substations of 66 KV level from where feeders for power distribution emanate.
The DHBVN has planned to create an infrastructural net work of 33 KV substations for electricity distribution in the district.
Presently, there is a network of 66 KV substations for distribution of power, which are controlled by the HVPN.
For this, the DHBVN plans to set up 436 new 33 KV substations in the district which would be connected to 220 KV substations to get power. To connect these substations, the Nigam would lay 33 KV lines of a length of over 2000 km.
In addition, for augmenting the distribution system, DHBVN will lay additional high tension and low tension lines of several thousand kilometres and will set up thousands of additional distribution transformers in the district during the period up to 2021.
For feeding these substations and the increased demand of the existing net work, the HVPN plans to set up 32 new 220 KV substations and 11 new substations of 400 KV level.
Besides, 23 existing substations were planned to be augmented by installing 13 additional power transformers and replacing 10 old transformers with new ones of higher capacity.
