Chandigarh, Oct 19 (UNI) Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) and Haryana Vidyut Prasaran Nigam (HVPN) have completed development works amounting to Rs 370 crores since March, 2005 for developing and augmenting power infrastructure in Gurgaon district.

A spokesman of the DHBVN said here today the HVPN has commissioned six new substations and augmented capacity of 12 existing substations, increasing the transformation capacity of the transmission system by 540 MVA in the district during this period.

The new substations include a 220 KV substation at Daultabad, a 132 KV substation at Dahina and four substations of 66 KV level at Gurgaon and Harsaru.

The DHBVN has set up over 3300 additional power distribution transformers and augmented capacity of 200 existing transformers by replacing the old transformers with new transformers of higher capacity increasing the transformation capacity of the distribution system matching the increasing demand of electricity. The Nigam erected new distribution lines of a length of 1500 kilometres and augmented capacity of 550 kilometre long distribution lines by replacing old conductors.

During this period, the DHBVN released over 75 000 new connections in the district increasing the connected load by over 650 MW. The new connections include 3500 industrial and 1300 tubewell connections.

During the current financial year, the DHBVN plans to spend Rs 190 crore to strengthen power distribution system in the district. Under the annual plan, the Nigam will add 1000 distribution transformers to the existing dense net work and augment capacity of 200 existing transformers.

To cope the increasing load in lines, DHBVN will erect additional 300 kilometre long distribution lines and augment capacity of 100 kilometre long lines by replacing old conductor. Agriculture and domestic load of 321 kilometre long lines in rural areas will be segregated to improve power supply in villages.

In addition, the DHBVN plans to create high voltage distribution system (HVDS) in 183 villages in the district during the current financial year. Under this system, the Nigam will lay ring mains of 11 KV level around the villages and transformers of smaller capacity would be set up with which the consumers would be connected by using independent cables.
