Transmission companies that laid the most network last year (Central transco) - PGCIL
PGCIL has planned capital investment of Rs 100,000 crore for development of an inter-state transmission system during the 12th Five Year Plan. It is the only listed player in the regulated transmission business in India with 50 per cent share in the segment.
Key success factors:
PGCILG´s transmission infrastructure comprises 116,625 ckm of lines, 195 substations and 234,709 MVA of transformer capacity. The company´s transmission line length, sub-station numbers and transformer capacity have grown at a CAGR of 8.8 per cent, 9.2 per cent and 25.6 per cent, respectively, over FY2011-15. Further, the inter-regional transfer capacity has grown from 5,050 MW in 2001-02 to 38,150 MW till March 2015. It operates on a regulatory business model with fixed RoE (15.5 per cent+incentives), while its tariff is based on CERC regulation.
PGCIL has planned a capex of Rs 1.1 lakh crore over the 12th Plan, which is 100 per cent higher than its 11th Plan capex of Rs 55,000 crore. It earns 15.5 per cent RoE on its capitalised asset and is largely beneficiary of increased capitalisation, adding Rs 68,664 crore assets over FY12-15. In FY15, the company incurred Rs 22,460 crore capex, and capitalized assets worth Rs 21,760 crore (up 37 per cent Y-o-Y). The management expects to increase the capitalisation-capex ratio to above 1.0 for FY16E and FY17E. It expects to capitalise ~Rs 26,000 crore of assets in FY16E.
The green corridor
It´s an ambitious plan for the country with an investment of over Rs 43,000 crore. It is currently working on the initial plan of the project and expects it to commence in the 12th Plan. The idea is to erect and use the network, especially for RE. The grid will be synchronised with the main grid, which can use the power as per requirement.
