Pune, May 26 - Transmission solutions firm Sterlite Technologies Monday said its subsidiary Sterlite Grid Ltd has won its sixth ultra-mega transmission project (UMTP) awarded by the union power ministry.

Sterlite Grid Ltd has been awarded its sixth ultra-mega transmission project (UMTP) on build-own-operate basis by the Ministry of Power, the company said in a release here.

This Northern Region Strengthening Scheme project (NRSS 29) is part of the National Grid and is designed to carry over 1,000 MW of electricity from Punjab to the Kashmir Valley, it added.

The NRSS 29 project was conceived by the Central Electricity Authority to provide a direct link between Punjab and the Kashmir Valley, which has been troubled by frequent blackouts.

A new route was specifically chosen to ensure the line has minimum outages, Sterlite said.

Post-construction, Sterlite Grid will be responsible to ensure that the link is active for 98 percent of the year, it added.

The project consists of one substation and 800 circuit kilometres of 400kV lines in the states of Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir.

We feel proud to develop this iconic infrastructure project which will bring over 1,000 MW of uninterrupted power to residents of the Kashmir valley, said Sterlite Technologies director Pravin Agarwal.
