Sterlite Power has successfully commissioned the 400KV D/C Nizamabad-Shankarapally and 400KV Maheshwarm-Mehboobnagar lines in the newly formed State of Telangana, well ahead of the scheduled date. These lines are integral part of the State government towards ensuring adequacy of the system to provide reliable and quality power to the consumers in the state.

These lines augment the power off take capacity by almost 1000 MW and should help in addressing the increase of household consumption to 3.56 units/ day in FY 2018-19.”
He added, “Specific to the project, as the existing bays were more than 15 years old and designs unavailable, our team prepared the same by physically tracing the existing scheme for integration. This resonates with our purpose – empowering humanity by addressing the toughest challenges of energy delivery.”
