HCL Infosystems bags Himachal's Rs 100 cr R-APDRP project

The project, under the Restructured Accelerated Power Development and Reform Programme (RAPDRP), was awarded by the Himachal Pradesh State Electricity Board (HPSEB), HCL Infosystems said in a statement.

The project will entail the deployment of a statewide solution to establish baseline data and IT applications for energy accounting/auditing and IT-based consumer service centres in 14 towns, comprising 30 sub-division offices and 293 other offices, it added.

The company will also set up a Disaster Recovery Centre and modernise the state's existing Data Centre, as well as create a Wide Area Network.

The Restructured Accelerated Power Development and Reform Programme (R-APDRP) is a flagship programme of the Indian government with a total outlay of Rs 51,577 crore.
Under the programme, IT companies would assist power utilities to strengthen and upgrade transmission and distribution networks from concept to commissioning in order to facilitate a reduction in aggregate technical and commercial (AT&C) losses.

"This being our second win in the space after the similar project won in Rajasthan testifies for our understanding and leadership in setting up IT-based solutions for such critical projects in the country," HCL Infosystems Executive Vice- President (System Integration and International Business) Rajeev Asija said.

The company had in 2009 won the country's first R-APDRP project from Rajasthan for over Rs 500 crore, it said.
