PGCIL will establish transmission lines to supply power generated from the Sasan ultra Mega Power Project to the electricity gridPower Grid Corporation of India Ltd will invest Rs 7,032 crore over the next four years to establish transmission lines to supply power generated from the Sasan ultra Mega Power Project to the electricity grid, the company said. The government had awarded Reliance Power Ltd a contract to build an ultra mega power plant (UMPP) at Sasan in Maharashtra, with a capacity to generate 4,000 mw of electricity. The transmission line will supply power to the states of Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Haryana and Uttarakhand.

The Sasan UMPP is expected to start commercial operations by the end of 2012. Power Grid Corp has a plan to invest Rs 55,000 crore in establishing transmission lines during the 11th Five Year Plan ending March 2012.

Considering the huge power generation capacity addition targets, the government proposed building nine coal-fired ultra mega power plants, each with the power generation capacity of 4,000 mw or above.

Each of the UMPPs is expected to entail an investment of about Rs 15,000 crore, and the electricity generated from such plants will likely cost about Rs 2 per unit.

The government has so far awarded the contract to build three such UMPPs on the basis of competitive bidding, with contracts for Sasan project in Madhya Pradesh and Krishnapatnam plant in Andhra Pradesh given to the Reliance Power Ltd.

Investments of up to Rs 1,40,000 crore are envisaged to increase the inter-regional transmission capacity to 3,71,000 mw by March 2012 from 1,55,000 mw now in order to create capacities for evacuating the power generated.
