Manesar to get power push, new substation on cards
GURUGRAM: Power transmission company Haryana Vidyut Prasaran Nigam Limited (HVPNL) will build a new 220 kV substation for IMT Manesar in Sector 8, said Anil Yadav, superintending engineer, HVPNL, on Thursday. The substation will add 320 MVA of carrying capacity to the state’s power supply.
Manesar had only one 220 kV substation at Sector 1 that catered to its power needs. “The entire apparatus of step-down substations and transformers was connected to this. The problem was that if we had to shut down the substation, or if any fault occurred leading to the substation conking out, entire Manesar would plunge into darkness,” explained Yadav.
