Sterlite Power will develop an 8 GW transmission project in Rajasthan (India)

The Indian power transmission developer Sterlite Power has secured an 8 GW transmission project for the evacuation of renewable power from the Bikaner Renewable Energy Zone (REZ) in the Indian State of Rajasthan, under Phase-IV. Sterlite Power will develop two integral components for the project: a 765/400 kV substation at Neemrana, and two 400 kV transmission lines spanning about 250 km and connecting Neemrana with the existing Kotputli substation. Sterlite Power will build this project on a BOOT (Build, Own, Operate, Transfer) basis, and operate it for a period of 35 years.

With this order win, Sterlite Power has secured its third green energy corridor project in the state of Rajasthan, after two projects were awarded to the company in March and August 2023. In March 2023, the group commissioned the Green Energy Corridor Project – LVTPL (Lakadia-Vadodara Transmission Project Ltd), facilitating the evacuation of 5 GW of renewable power from the wind and solar energy hubs of Bhuj and Kutch to various parts of India.
