The Power Infrastructure and Renewable Energy (PIRE) business unit of Godrej & Boyce has commissioned the 400/220/132/33kV GIS grid substation at Naubatpur and Jakkanpur in Patna district of Bihar.
The substation will connect the adjacent towns of Naubatpur and Jakkanpur on a state-level grid through 400kV, 220kV, 132kV & 33kV transmission lines, thereby contributing to the district of Patna by the easy access to reliable quality power with a transformation capacity of 1000 MVA.

This is the first 400kV GIS substation to be commissioned in the state of Bihar. The substation will cater to the power evacuation requirements of NTPC Nabinagar Power Station and enhance the transformation by driving growth in the Industrial landscape in and around Naubatpur and Jakkanpur.

Raghavendra Mirji, Senior Vice President & Business Head, Electricals & Electronics Division, Godrej & Boyce Mfg. Co. Ltd. said, “Glad to be a part of change in the region as we commission substation with high power capacity in Naubatpur and Jakkanpur. We believe that this will not only witness the new era of reliable power but will also result in revolutionizing power supply in the region paving way for industries to achieve greater outcomes. We aim to secure more such opportunities and reach out to other markets and smaller towns to play a role in improving the quality of power transmission in future.”
