PGCILPower Grid Corporation of India (PGCIL)  said it had commissioned the transmission system for two units of the Mundra Ultra Mega Power Project (UMPP) in Gujarat. The 4,000 MW Mundra project, being developed by Tata Power, would be the first UMPP to start power generation in the country.

"The line is ready to evacuate power from two units of Mundra UMPP (2X800 MW) in normal condition and more than 1,200 MW in the contingency from today onwards," Power Grid said in a statement. The transmission system was commissioned on 29-09-2011.

According to the statement, the system commissioned consists of high capacity Mundra-Bachau-Ranchodpura 400 kV Double circuit line along with 630 MVA Bachau 400/220 kV sub-station.

These are part of the transmission system associated with Mundra UMPP, being implemented by Power Grid at an estimated cost of about Rs 5,000 crore, it added.

"About 770 circuit kilometre transmission line has been commissioned in challenging conditions like passing through tough terrains in creek area of Arabian Sea... Excessive water logging due to heavy rains, etc," the statement said.

The first unit of Mundra UMPP is expected to be commissioned by end of December this year.
