The Haryana Vidyut Prasaran Nigam Limited (HVPNL) has announced the construction of a 220 kilovolt (kV) substation in Old Gurgaon, in the Indian state of Haryana.

The new gas-insulated substation will be constructed at an estimated cost of around $5.7 million. Currently, there is a 66kV substation in Sector 15, where the new high-capacity substation is being built, which will continue to operate even after the new facility is commissioned, said officials.

“The 220kV substation will be the backbone of power distribution for the whole of Old Gurgaon as it would supply power to four more 66kV substations each at sectors 18, 15, 38 and MG Road,” said Malik.

According to HVPNL authorities, the substation will help meet the load growth and absorb the load during the breakdown of other substations in the surrounding areas resulting from increased demand. “This will eliminate chances of localised power outages from excess load. The upcoming substation will also have facilities for easy upgrading” said a senior HVPNL official.

Authorities said the upcoming substation will draw power from another high-capacity substation in Sector 72. At least six-and-a-half kilometre long transmission lines will be laid to connect the upcoming substation with the one at Sector 72.

The new substation is estimated to be completed in April 2023
