PowergridState-run transmission firm Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd (PGCIL) will provide consultancy services to the Sri Lankan government for setting up an undersea power transmission line between the two countries.

To expedite, PowerGrid will offer technical assistance to the Sri Lankan government in making one, a senior official from the company told Business Standard.

Globally, transnational undersea power transmission lines have been laid till date only between Britain and France, for transmission of 2,000 Mw of electricity.

 

Earlier, the project was expected to be completed by 2013, but has been delayed. The line is expected to take 1,000 Mw. The 285-km power link, including submarine cables over a stretch of 50 km, will enable the two countries to trade surplus power.
