PM to dedicate Raichur-Solapur power line  to nation

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will dedicate the Raichur-Solapur power transmission line to the nation on Friday.

“The commissioning of one 765kV (kilovolt) Raichur-Solapur transmission line by Power Grid Corporation and synchronous interconnection of Southern Regional grid with the rest of the grid was achieved in December 2013,” an official statement said.

The second 765kV Raichur–Solapur transmission line implemented through private sector participation was completed on June 30, with guidance from Power Grid, the statement said.

With the transmission lines now in operation, the interconnection has helped in achieving a pan-India synchronous grid of 2,49,000 MW, one of the largest synchronous operating grids in the world, it added. This link also helps power-starved southern states to access electricity at competitive rates from producers in north India.
