GE Power’s Grid Solutions business today announced completion of a 400/200 Kilovolt Gas Insulated Substation (GIS) project in Baramulla block of north Kashmir.


The project is part of the Northern Region System Strengthening 29 (NRSS 29) scheme and was awarded to Sterlite Power by the government through tariff-based competitive bidding in May 2014.


The project led by GE T&D India Ltd, the listed entity of GE Power's Grid Solutions business and is expected to provide over half a million Jammu and Kashmir citizens access to reliable power, the company said in a statement.


GE has so far commissioned over four hundred 400kV GIS bays across India and this project is situated at an altitude of 1,710 metres in the hills of Amargarh. The project was implemented in record time amidst tough conditions, the company said.


“Specially designed vehicles were used to transport the heavy equipment and deliver them safely to the site, overcoming several considerable constraints like narrow tunnels and rough terrains,” said Shailesh Mishra, Business Unit Head of Turnkey Solutions South Asia for GE Grid solutions.


GE Power provides equipment and services for the energy sector and has operations in 180 countries. GE T&D is the listed entity of GE Power’s Grid Solutions business in India.
