Work on connecting power stations to the new 400 kVA substations is already under way and will be completed in a few days.
The recently inaugurated power substations in Ghaziabad are now being connected to feeder stations. The two new 400 kVA substations in Ataur and Indirapuram are expected to bring respite to residents from extensive power cuts, say officials.
Officials said work on connecting power stations to the new 400 kVA substations was already under way and would be completed in a few days. According to officials of Pashimanchal Vidyut Vitran Nigam Limited (PVVNL), the supply will soon be connected to the 33 kVA feeders before being connected to end consumers.
MC Sharma, superintending engineer of PVVNL, said, “The technical work for connecting eight 33 kVA feeders from Indirapuram is almost complete. The supply is to be transferred from the substation in Vaishali.”
Sharma added that of the 34 stations of 33 kVA in the trans-Hindon area, at present, only eight from Indirapuram will be connected to the new mega substations.
Officials also said that the transfer of supply would largely relieve the older substations from the heavy load and ensure proper supply to consumers.
