Alstom to renovate grid infrastructure of Bihar

Bihar aims to invest significantly in the coming years to revamp the power sector in the state. The state government plans to replace the obsolete infrastructure, increasing power capacity and providing reliable and uninterrupted electricity to its population of approximately 110 million people.
Alstom T&D India has secured an order worth ` 506.6 million, to renovate and modernise 132/33KV grid substations across various locations for Bihar State Power Transmission Company Limited (BSPTCL). The project will strengthen the transmission system and enhance power evacuation capacity under India’s 12th Five-Year Plan.
Under this contract, Alstom T&D India will replace ageing and defective substation equipment with new, advanced technology including 132 kV and 33kV outdoor circuit breaker, isolator, lightning arrestors, relay control panels and more. The new equipment will strengthen the substations and hence, stabilise the transmission network in Bihar.
