Hartek Power wins gas-insulated 132 KV project for AIIMS in Jhajjar
Engineering, procurement and construction company Hartek Power has won a Rs 22 crore contract to build a 132-KV gas-insulated substation at the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences in Jhajjar. The substation will handle the electricity requirement of the 31-acre National Cancer Institute campus, which includes a 710-bed hospital, 15 laboratories for principal investigators and a separate diagnostics block.
The project, scheduled to be completed by September next year, entails complete EPC—from survey, design and engineering to supply, construction and project management. It was awarded by Haryana Vidyut Prasaran Nigam Ltd (HVPNL).
The gas-insulated substations have come up as being safer, low-weight, maintenance-free and more reliable with fewer outages. They have emerged as the preferred choice in large cities, indoor locations, underground stations and hilly areas.
Hartek Power has executed more than 150 high-voltage and extra high-voltage substations and transmission lines. Among the key projects executed by the company are 13 bays of a 220-KV substation at the first in-house 4×300-MW thermal plant of Reliance Energy at Shahjahanpur, 132-KV substation projects for a 40-MW solar plant in Rajasthan, and a 132-KV substation for L&T’s 40-MW project at Dhansa, Rajasthan. So far, the company has connected 600 MW of solar power to the grid.
