India’s leading private sector power transmission company, Sterlite Power Transmission Limited (Sterlite Power) has been honoured by the Central Board of Irrigation and Power (CBIP) for setting new benchmarks in India’s power transmission sector and bringing advanced and innovative technologies to speed up energy delivery.
Award for ‘Best Performing Power Transmission (System) Utility’ to Sterlite Power. Sterlite Power is the first private transmission project developer to receive this honour from CBIP. Key officials from the Ministry of Power and Central Electricity Authority were also present at the event held on Thursday evening.
This year, Sterlite Power was also honoured by Frost & Sullivan, SKOCH Group, Power Grid and IDC Insights, among others, for its work in project development, manufacturing and information technologies.
“Today, our projects use global technologies like sky crane, heli-stringing and LiDAR surveys and these have helped us speed up projects, especially in difficult terrains, and in many cases complete them ahead of schedule. We will continue to meet our commitments to make sure no home is without electricity. We thank CBIP for bestowing this honour on Sterlite Power and validating our efforts to bring state-of-the-art technologies to the Indian transmission sector,” said Sterlite Power CEO Pratik Agarwal.
CBIP is a premier central government backed Institution rendering dedicated services to professional organisations, engineers and individuals resulting in accelerated development in water resources, energy and allied fields, including renewable energy. It is a recognised international platform for knowledge sharing, training, consultancy, and research. Minister of State for Agriculture and Food Processing, Sanjeev Balyan, presented the coveted CBIP.
CBIP’s recognition comes in the wake of Sterlite Power adopting ground breaking technologies across its operational value chain, resulting in quicker project delivery.
Sterlite Power has been recognised by the Ministry of Power, the first private developer to do so, for early commission of the 765-KV substation at Dhule, Maharashtra. In December 2015, it set a new benchmark by commissioning the RAPP Transmission Project ahead of schedule.
Recently, the company commissioned the Jalandhar-Samba transmission line 14 months ahead of schedule.
