BHEL plays key role in implementing UHVDC transmission link

State-owned engineering firm BHEL on Friday said it has played a key role in the successful implementation of ultra-high voltage direct current (UHVDC) link between the western and southern region grid.

“Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has added another feather in its cap by playing a key role in the successful implementation of the +800 kV, 6,000 MW Ultra High Voltage Direct Current (UHVDC) Link between the Western Region Grid (Raigarh, Chattisgarh) and the Southern Region Grid (Pugalur, Tamil Nadu),” a company statement said.

According to the statement, the project will bring relief to the power deficit southern grid. For this project, among other equipment and systems, BHEL has significantly contributed by supplying converter transformers, shunt reactors, filter bank capacitors and instrument transformers from its Bhopal Plant; and thyristor valves from its Electronics Division, Bengaluru.
