APTransco to invest Rs 3,000 crore in new substations

Transmission Corporation of Andhra Pradesh (APTransco) is investing Rs 3,000 crore this year to set up 60 new high tension sub-stations in the state, 14 of them in coastal districts of Srikakulam, Vizianagaram, Visakhapatnam and the two Godavari districts.

Ajay Jain, Chairman and Managing Director, APTransco, said that in the next four years 170 such sub-stations will be established in the state at a cost of nearly Rs 6,000 crore to improve the transmission and distribution system.

He said that the power situation in the state was better this summer and that there was some load-shedding only for around a fortnight. He said that their power deficit is only 3 per cent against the average of 5.2 per cent in southern states and 8.5 per cent in the country. In Tamil Nadu, it is 6.5 per cent, in Karnataka 7.6 per cent and in Uttar Pradesh 15 per cent. He said that the T&D losses amounted to 17.5 per cent in the state and efforts were on to reduce it to 16 per cent in the current year but that it was much better than the national average.
