Reliance Infrastructure Ltd said it has commissioned a 100% privately owned transmission line in India on build, own and operate basis. This line has been constructed between Solapur and Karad in the western regions of Maharashtra.
The 116km long 400kV double circuit Solapur-Karad transmission line is the first line under the Western Regional System Strengthening Scheme (WRSSS) project having an outlay of about Rs1,400 crore and a total length of 1,500km. RInfra's wholly owned subsidiary company, Reliance Power Transmission Ltd was awarded the project through tariff based competitive bidding process.
After signing the power transmission agreement with the Western Region beneficiaries in March 2009 and subsequently achieving financial closure in 70 days, the company has completed the first line in a record time of 15 months and is expected to commission the complete project by the Q2FY12.
Once commissioned, the project would facilitate the free flow of 4,000 MW from power rich Eastern region to the power starved Western region of the country and would benefit all regional utilities.
On Thursday, Reliance Infrastructure ended 0.21% down at Rs716.30 on the Bombay Stock Exchange, while the benchmark Sensex closed 1.50% down at 18,684.43 points.
