PowerGrid to double transmission lines

The company plans to install about 65,000 circuit km (ckm) of transmission lines during the 12th Five Year Plan (2012-2017), which is more than twice the likely installation in the current Plan. The company's target for the 11th Plan, which ends in March, was 37,000 ckm, but may end up with 28,000-30,000 ckm due to delays in commissioning of certain projects. It currently has 87,111 ckm of transmission lines across the country and carries half the country's power. India has an installed capacity of over 180,000 MW.

The company has in the first half of the fiscal awarded 95 contracts having a total length of 4,224 ckm. The company has already commissioned the transmission system for two units of the Mundra Ultra Mega Power Project   (UMPP) in Gujarat. These are part of the transmission system associated with the Mundra UMPP that is being implemented by PowerGrid at an estimated cost of about Rs 5,000 crore.
