GE T&D India energises third pole of Champa-Kurukshetra UHVDC project

GE T&D India Limited has energised the third of the four poles planned under Powergrid’s Champa-Kurukshetra UHVDC project. This adds an additional 1,500 MW of capacity to the 1,305 km link, which is now transmitting 4,500 MW. Once pole 4 is commissioned, the entire system will transmit 6,000 MW of electricity at 800 kV – making the project one of the largest generation-to-consumption transmission systems in the world.
