Sterlite Power commissions its Green Energy Corridor project in Gujarat

Sterlite Power has successfully commissioned its green energy corridor project, Lakadia-Vadodara Transmission Project Limited (LVTPL), that aims to deliver more than 5000 MW of power from renewable rich regions of Bhuj and Kutch to the national grid.

The inter-state transmission  system project, built at an investment of Rs 20.24 billion, connects the 765/400 kV substation at Lakadia to Vadodara through a 335 km long 765 kV double-circuit transmission line. The corridor involves 812 towers spanning seven districts in Gujarat. The project was awarded to the company in 2019 and the work was started in 2020. It involves innovative construction techniques like pocket foundation, well point system, and unique tower designs to withstand the complex terrain challenges in the region. The transmission  system forms a critical part of the world’s largest 30,000 MW hybrid renewable energy park set to be built in Kutch.
