Plan for 132 KV Lines for NTPC’S new Mining Blocks
The Chhattisgarh State Power Transmission Company Ltd (CSPTCL) will soon be carrying out preliminary and detailed survey for development of 132 KV power supply transmission system for NTPC Ltd’s new coal blocks at Banai and Bhalumuda in Raigarh district of Chhattisgarh, officials informed. Notably, Chhattisgarh is also expected to add 14,140 MW of additional power generation capacity in its thermal plants between November 2015 to March 2022, according to the Central Electricity Authority (CEA) in its perspective transmission plan report prepared for 20 years ( 2014-34). The objective of the plan is to present broad outlines of the requirement of additional transmission system in the Indian grid during the next two decades. The National Electricity Plan is under preparation u/S 3(4) of the Electricity Act 2003. This Plan would inter-alia give generation capacity addition for period up to 2021-22 based on integrated resource planning requirements for the country. Major high capacity transmission corridors have already been planned and which are under implementation would be sufficient to meet import/export of power among various regions in the year 2021-22, officials informed.
