$2.4 M for transformers revamp in India

India: The UT electricity department will be revamping the power distribution system in the city of Chandigarh.

“Faulty transformers and those which had completed their life cycle caused erratic power supply in the city,” said a senior official of the UT engineering department privy to the development.

Therefore, sixty 300 KVA distribution transformers will be installed across the city at indoor service stations.

The department will also purchase four transformers and install them at grid stations by December end. The replacements should help improve the aging power infrastructure in the city including a 220 KV substation, thirteen 66 KV substations of which, six have outlived their life span, and a 533 KV substation.

The joint electricity regularity commission had given an approval of $2.4 M (Rs17.89 crore) for the project on a pilot basis.
