Mahatransco has a planned capex of Rs. 112.64 billion during the eleventh plan to add capacity capable of handling about 30,000 MW of demand. To achieve this ambitious target, we have pioneered several innovative measures including a strategic alliance model for Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contracts and Public Private Partnerships (PPPs). Mahatransco has joined hands with Jindal South West Energy Ltd. to form a joint venture (JV) company called Jaigad Power Transco for the construction of transmission lines to evacuate power from the 1,200 MW Jaigad project in Ratnagiri District.
To meet the increase in power generation in the next few years, Mahatransco has also planned to establish a robust Transmission network with Transmission capacity of 30,000MW by 2012. A total transmission system of 610 sub-stations, 45000 Ckt Km. lines and transformation capacity of 108788 MVA is envisaged by the end of 2012.
Mahatransco is implementing Availability Based Tariff (ABT) metering at 480 locations by installing about 9,090 meters in the system. The ABT metering data is made available online at our load despatch centre at Kalwa through the communication network. Further, we are implementing substation monitoring system at 25 important substations, numerical relays with disturbance recorders, event sequence recorders and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) with global positioning systems (GPS). All old electromechanical- type distance protection relays on EHV lines are being replaced by numerical relays. Further, advanced fire protection system has been adopted at all 400 KV and key 220 KV grid substations.
Enterprise Resource Planning and Management Information System(ERP-MIS) are also under implementation. IBM is establishing the systems and it will be put into operation shortly.
