Sterlite moves ahead with its 765 kV Beawar power transmission project (India)

The Indian power transmission developer Sterlite Power has achieved financial closure for its Beawar transmission project, which involves the construction of a 350 km, 765 kV transmission corridor that will connect the renewable energy zone at Fatehgarh III to a proposed substation at Beawar, in the Indian State of Rajasthan. 

Sterlite Power has secured funds totalling INR24bn (US$289m) from REC Power Development and Consultancy. The project, which was acquired by Sterlite in September 2023, is part of a larger Green Energy Corridor that will help evacuate around 20 GW of renewable energy in Rajasthan. The Beawar transmission project will also include construction of a 3,000 MVA 765/400kV Substation at Beawar and two LILO lines covering approximately 120 km. 

Sterlite Power has a portfolio of 33 completed, sold and under construction power transmission projects in India and Brazil, covering approximately 15,350 circuit km of transmission lines.
