Will construct underground sub-stations | Bawankule
To augment the power supply network in Mumbai and to overcome space constraints for setting up infrastructure, the state government is planning underground substations in the city to be constructed under open spaces like grounds. Reservations in this regard will be made in the development plan (DP).
´Many foreign countries have underground substations, which is a good idea for a city like Mumbai which has land constraints to set up substations,´ said energy minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule.
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has constructed two similar underground sub-stations to power its Metro lines.
