First of six transformers installed in Gurugram

Gurugram, India: One of the six new transformers allotted by the Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) for Sushant Lok-1 area of the city, was installed on Monday, with the rest lined up for installation within the week.

“All new transformers of 200 kVA have been granted under the Smart Grid project to resolve power cut problems of the colony,” DHBVN superintending engineer KC Aggarwal said.

DHBVN’s Smart Grid project is underway and it is likely to be commissioned by the end of November in Sushant Lok 1— a privately developed colony by Ansal API Limited in the late 1980s, where civic maintenance was recently taken over by the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram, but the electricity infrastructure is only expected to be transferred to the DHBVN by October.

The development comes a fortnight after the Resident Welfare Association had given a representation to the DHBVN, on May 15, demanding installation of new transformers.

“All new six transformers are of 200 kVA capacity. We need at least 15 new transformers. The DHBVN, however, has released only six,” RWA president Sumit Bhaita said.

About 300 houses in C Block spent 12 hours without electricity after a blast in a 400 kV transformer on April 19.
