Linxon has successfully commissioned the first 400 kV Gas Insulated Substation (GIS) at Badaun, India on behalf of the Obra-c Badaun Transmission Ltd (A subsidiary of Adani Transmission Limited). This project has been constructed to transmit power from the 660 MW Obra-C Thermal Power Plant to associated transmission lines and will help strengthen the grid.
The substation was energized through the Double Circuit 400 kV Roza – Badaun line and came into operation in April 2021.
With completion of this project, 950 MVA will be added to the installed base. The operation of the 400 kV substation at Badaun will allow the reliable and efficient transmission of electricity within State of Uttar Pradesh, India.
“We wish to congratulate Obra-c Bdaun Transmission Ltd on this successful commissioning and thank them for the confidence they have shown in us. We are proud of our collaboration and of the achievements of our execution team, who safely steered the project through challenges such as the pandemic”, said Dinesh Chadha, Managing Director of Linxon India.
Linxon’s scope includes design & engineering, installation, testing and commissioning of the entire 400/220/132 kV switchyard (30 bays) including all civil works.
