Sterlite Power commissions a green energy corridor project in Gujarat


New Delhi: Sterlite Power announced on Monday that it has commissioned its green energy corridor project – Lakadia-Vadodara Transmission Project Limited – in Gujarat, which aims to supply more than 5,000 MW of renewable energy from Bhuj and Kutch to the national grid.

Built with an investment of 2,024 crore, this interstate transmission connects the 765/400 kV substation at Lakadia to Vadodara through a 335 km dual circuit 765 kV transmission line.

“With 812 towers spread across seven districts in Gujarat, this power transmission corridor is also one of the largest transmission corridors built in India to date,” said a press release.

It added that the project is a critical part of the world’s largest 30,000 MW hybrid renewable energy farm in Kutch.

“It has been a challenging journey but we have succeeded in unlocking 5000MW of green power for the nation that will accelerate India’s RE vision of 500GW by 2030,” said Pratik Agarwal, Managing Director, Sterlite Power.

Sterlite Power is a leading developer and supplier of power transmission infrastructure solutions with projects spanning approximately 14,602 circuit kilometers of transmission lines in India and Brazil.
