RInfra Commissions 5th Transmission Line in Gujarat.

India, Nov. 20 -- Reliance Infrastructure Limited, a unit of Reliance Group and India's largest infrastructure company, today commissioned another 400 kV Double Circuit Transmission line, between Ranchodpura (Vadavi) and Zerda (Kansari) in Gujarat.

140 Kms long transmission line is part of the Western Regional System Strengthening (WRSS) project that will connect key business centers of Gujarat - like Disa, Patan and Kadi, and will boost the economic growth of the region.

Out of three, two transmission lines had now been commissioned in Gujarat. Third transmission line between Raigarh and Karamsad will be commissioned soon.

Commenting on the development, Mr. Lalit Jalan, CEO & Director, Reliance Infrastructure said, "We are proud to announce the commissioning of fifth transmission line. Out of nine, five transmission lines have been successfully commissioned. We are committed to complete the project by FY12 and facilitate the power flow from eastern region to the western region of the country. "

He further added that, "On-time commissioning of transmission lines have been possible because of RInfra's technological strength and pool of skilled manpower, having inherent strengths in executing larger projects. We are endeavoring to create world class infrastructure for power sector in India that will further boost economic growth."

Once commissioned, the project would facilitate free flow of 4,000 MW from power rich Eastern Region to the power starved Western Region of the country and would benefit all constituent utilities in the Western Region. This would also immediately aid in relieving grid congestion presently being experienced in the entire Western Region.

WRSS is India's first ever 100% privately owned transmission project on Build, Own, Operate and Maintain (BOOM) basis having 1500Kms length, and executed at a cost of about Rs 1,400 crore. The project was awarded to Reliance Infrastructure through tariff based International competitive bidding process.

RInfra's wholly owned subsidiary, Reliance Power Transmission Ltd. (RPTL) has already commissioned first four transmission lines of the project, viz. Solapur - Karad; Limdi - Ranchodpura, LILO under Lonikand - Kalwa and Solapur - Parali. All the transmission lines have been commissioned in record time and well before schedule.

RInfra, at present, is executing five transmission projects across the country with total outlay of over Rs 6,600 crore. The Company owns two out of five Ultra Mega Transmission Projects awarded to private sector till date, making RInfra as the largest developer of transmission projects in private space.
