Chandigarh, Sep 26 (UNI) The Dakhin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) has proposed a Rs 130 crore plan to strengthen power distribution system in Gurgaon, to be funded by the World Bank.

A Nigam spokesman said today that under this comprehensive plan, the DHBVN would bifurcate 40 feeders of 11 KV level, extend the existing 11 KV lines to take close to the load centre and replace the old and worn out undersized conductor on lines.

Aerial bunched cable (ABC) would be used for safety where right of way for overhead conductor was not available.

Under the plan, the Nigam proposed to convert 13 feeders of 11 KV level to High Voltage Distribution System (HVDS). While laying HVDS, complete system of the feeders, right from their emanating point to the consumers end, would be renovated and additional transformers would also be set up as per requirement, the spokesman said.

The plan included setting up of Customer Care Centers in Gurgaon to give single window service to the customers. The centres would be supported with the latest information technology.

Energy Meters would be installed at all the distribution transformers for an accurate accounting of energy flow down the transformers. This would give a useful data to the officials about transformers' loading and load balancing which would help minimising problems of tripping and low voltage.

The spokesman said that to strengthen power transmission system in Gurgaon a transmission plan of Rs 375 crore for the current financial year was under execution.
