Uttar Pradesh: Sector 123 substation to boost Noida power, three transformers to energise from April

The third transformer of 400/132kv system will be energised along with two transformers of 132/33 kv system at the 400Kv substation in Sector 123 from April this year. This is the third substation after Pali in Greater Noida and Sector 148 in Noida, all of 400Kv capacity each, that will together share the load of power transmission in Gautam Budh Nagar. Built at Rs 282.36 crore, the Sector 123 substation is partly funded by Uttar Pradesh Power Transmission Corporation Limited (UPPTCL) while the remaining cost is borne by the Noida Authority.

“We will be energising three transformers at the 400Kv substation in Sector 123 from April this year in different phases. These include one 400/132 Kv transformer and two smaller transformers of 132/33 Kv system. There are a total of eight transformers that have to be energised for the newly constructed Sector 123 substation out of which two have already been energised last year. After energising the three in April, remaining three will be energised in the second phase later this year,” said Puneet Gupta, superintending engineer (transmission), UPPTCL.

According to Gupta, the Sector 123 substation will help improve the power supply in Noida as it is the additional third substation for the district apart from 400 Kv substation at Pali and one 400Kv substation in Sector 148
