Grid Solutions business of GE Power has announced the completion of a ‘first-of-its-kind project’ for a 400/200 kV Gas Insulated Substation (GIS) at Magam village in the Baramulla block of north Kashmir.
Part of the Northern Region System Strengthening 29 (NRSS 29) project, this project was awarded to Sterlite Power by the Indian Government through tariff-based competitive bidding in May 2014.
Sterlite Energy said recently that the commissioning of the project was two months ahead of schedule despite challenging mountainous terrain.
The project will provide over half a million Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) citizens access to reliable power sources year-round. The project was led by GE T&D India, the listed entity of GE Power’s Grid Solutions business in the country.
