Tata Power proposes new 400 kV transmission corridor for Mumbai

Tata Power has, reportedly, proposed to the state government and the state regulatory authority for setting up of a high voltage 400 kV line corridor for Mumbai.

The new transmission corridor of 400 kV will help meet the city’s growing electricity demand and enhance electricity distribution capacity to 15,000 MW in the future. Once approved, this project is estimated to be completed in four to five years at a cost of around Rs 10 billion. Notably, the transmission line will have a ring formation, involving two hemispheres of 30 km each, wherein if one hemisphere fails, the other will act as a backup.
