Sterlite Power has been awarded the transmission project for evacuating power from renewable energy zones in Rajasthan under Phase-III Part G.
The project was bid out through tariff-based competitive bidding (TBCB) process. Sterlite Power has received the letter of intent from PFC Consulting Limited to build the project on build, own, operate, and transfer (BOOT) basis, for a period of 35 years. The project will involve construction of a 350km, 765kV transmission corridor from Fatehgarh III to Beawar in Rajasthan. It will enable evacuation of a part of 20 GW of renewable power from renewable energy zones in Fatehgarh (9.1 GW), Bhadla (8 GW) and Ramgarh (2.9 GW) areas of the state. This is the second green energy project for the company and its first in the state of Rajasthan. Recently, Sterlite Power commissioned its first green energy project, i.e., Lakadia-Vadodara power transmission project in Gujarat.
