Sterlite Power announced on Monday that it has commissioned its green energy corridor project in Gujarat, Lakadia-Vadodara Transmission Project Limited, which aims to deliver over 5,000 MW of renewable energy to the national grid from Bhuj and Kutch.
This inter-state transmission line connects the 765/400 kV substation in Lakadia to Vadodara via a 335 km long 765 kV double-circuit transmission line built with a $2,024 crore investment.
This power transmission corridor, which spans seven districts in Gujarat, is also one of the largest transmission corridors built in India to date, according to a media release.
It went on to say that the project is a critical component of the world’s largest 30,000-MW hybrid renewable energy park, which is being built in Kutch.
“It’s been a difficult journey, but we’ve succeeded in unlocking 5000 MW of green power for the nation, which will accelerate India’s RE vision of 500GW by 2030,” said Pratik Agarwal, Managing Director of Sterlite Power.
Sterlite Power is a leading power transmission infrastructure developer and solutions provider with projects covering approximately 14,602 circuit km of transmission lines across India and Brazil.
