Sterlite Power Wins Rajasthan REZ Ph-IV (Part-1-Bikaner Complex) Transmission Project

By Editor


Sterlite Power, a prominent player in private sector power transmission development, has clinched a order for the Rajasthan REZ Ph-IV (Part-1-Bikaner Complex): Part-B Transmission project.

This win signifies the company’s attainment of its third Green Energy Corridor (GEC) project within the state of Rajasthan. The project, executed on a Build, Own, Operate, Transfer (BOOT) basis for a duration of 35 years, emerged victorious through a tariff-based competitive bidding (TBCB) process.

The scope of the Part B Bikaner Complex transmission scheme encompasses two elements: a 6000 MVA, 765/400kV substation at Neemrana and two 400 kV transmission lines, spanning approximately 250kms. These lines will connect Neemrana with the existing Kotputli substation and establish another LILO (Loop-in Loop-out) corridor linking the existing Gurgaon-Sohna line with the Gurgaon & Sohna substations.

“This project will allow around 8000 MW of renewable energy to flow from RE rich Bikaner to load centers in Rajasthan, Haryana, and UP,” Pratik Agarwal, Managing Director of Sterlite Power, said.

This order amplifies the company’s green energy portfolio, elevating the total projects under execution to 8. Sterlite Power’s previous successes in March and August 2023 with Fatehgarh III Beawar Transmission Ltd (Phase III, Part G project) and Beawar Transmission Ltd. (Phase III, Part-F) respectively, are integral parts of these initiatives.

Collectively, these GEC projects will engender the construction of a ~950 km long transmission corridor across Rajasthan, essential for the evacuation of a substantial portion of renewable energy from REZs in Fatehgarh (9.1 GW), Bhadla (8 GW), Ramgarh (2.9 GW), and 7.7 GW in Bikaner.

The commitment of Sterlite Power to spearheading challenging and pivotal green energy transmission corridor initiatives was further evident in March 2023, with the successful commissioning of its largest Green Energy Corridor Project – LVTPL (Lakadia-Vadodara Transmission Project Limited). This landmark project presently facilitates the evacuation of 5 GW of reliable green power from the wind and solar energy hubs of Bhuj & Kutch to various parts of India.
