CPRI checking PTCUL transformer quality

India, Uttarakhand: The Central Power Research Institute (CPRI) Bangalore has started examining the quality of a transformer supplied to the Power Transmission Corporation of Uttarakhand Limited (PTCUL) which developed a fault after its installation in the Jhajra substation in March last year.

The 80 MVA transformer, purchased by a Maharashtra-based company, IMP Power, and installed by PTCUL, developed a snag on 15 March this year, which led to fire, reports The Times of India.

PTCUL ordered a probe against the officials in charge of purchase of the transformers considering that the company purchased 29 transformers from this firm.

According to PTCUL managing director, Alok Shekhar Tiwari, the company will decide on the next course of action based on the findings of the report.
