Techno Electric commissions 400 kV intra-state project
Jhajjar KT Transco (JKTPL), a special purpose vehicle with 51:49 joint venture between Kalpataru Power Transmission and Techno Electric and Engineering Company, successfully commissioned the 400 kV intra-state transmission project in a record 16 months from the date of financial closure. The project is a public-private partnership project with the Haryana government initiative and the first-ever transmission project to get viability gap funding support from the Central government. HVPNL is the first state utility to promote this kind of a partnership between private and public sectors in transmission, with other utilities wanting to replicate the model. The transmission network is designed to facilitate evacuation of 2,400 MW of power and will initially transmit 1,320 MW from the Jhajjar power plant.
PP Gupta, MD, Techno Electric, said, “Being the first project in the country and for us in the transmission space on DBFOT model, we are happy to announce its successful and timely commissioning. Techno, a leading player as a power EPC contractor and as an IPP in clean energy, has now moved up the value chain to become a comprehensive player in the power sector.”
