Foundation laid for augmentation of Powergrid’s substation in Bihar

The foundation stone has been laid for the augmentation of Power Grid Corporation of India Limited’s (Powergrid’s) 220/132 kV Ara substation in Bihar.

The augmentation of the Ara sub-station will increase the total transformation capacity of the sub-station to 560 MVA. The initiative would facilitate meeting the demand of electricity for the next 10 years in Ara, Bihar. Uninterrupted power supply will lead to the industrial and commercial development of the area and also improve power availability in Bhojpur, Buxar and Rohtas districts of Bihar. It will further strengthen Ara’s connectivity with the national grid.
