Sterlite Power successfully commissioned its green energy corridor project, Lakadia-Vadodara Transmission Project Limited (LVTPL) as per the announcement made by the company on March 06, 2023. Sterlite Power is a leading power transmission company and aims to deliver more than 5000 MW of power from renewable-rich regions of Bhuj and Kutch to the national grid with this project, in a step towards accelerating India's transition towards a greener economy.

The project is built with an investment of Rs 2,024 crore. An inter-state transmission connects 765/400 kV substation at Lakadia to Vadodara through a 335 km long 765 kV double-circuit transmission line. With 812 towers spanning seven districts in Gujarat, this power transmission corridor is also one of the largest transmission corridors built in India to date. Additionally, it forms a critical part of the world’s largest 30,000 MW hybrid renewable energy park coming up in Kutch.

Pratik Agarwal, Managing Director, Sterlite Power said, “It makes us immensely proud to announce the completion of the mega LVTPL project. It has been a challenging journey, but we have been successful in unlocking 5000 MW of green power for the nation which will accelerate India’s RE vision of 500GW by 2030.”

“We are sincerely thankful to the government and the local administration for their constant support in ensuring the successful completion of the critical project. I am extremely proud of our team and grateful for the trust and support of our stakeholders,” added Manish Agarwal, Director and CEO - India Transmission, Sterlite Power.

The company took over the project in 2019 but fieldwork started in 2020 due to Covid 19 pandemic. With innovative construction techniques like pocket foundation, well-point system, and unique tower designs to construct durable power infrastructure, the project can withstand the complex terrain challenges in the region. During the project execution phase, the company engaged with various communities for an inclusive approach toward development. The company also provided employment to thousands of skilled and unskilled people during the construction phase. It also made concerted efforts to provide essential health items to vulnerable communities around the project sites during the Covid-19 imposed national lockdown.
