Sterlite Power acquires Beawar Transmission Limited Project from REC

Mumbai, 23rd September 2023: Sterlite Power, a leading power transmission developer and solutions provider in India and Brazil, announced the acquisition of Beawar Transmission Limited, a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) from REC Power Development and Consultancy Limited – a wholly owned subsidiary of Rural Electricity Corporation. The project was awarded to Sterlite Power through the Tariff Based Competitive Bidding (TBCB) process in August 2023.

Through the Beawar Transmission Limited SPV, the company will build the Green Energy Corridor project on BOOT (build, own, operate, transfer) basis, for a period of 35 years. This is Sterlite Power’s nineteenth power transmission project in India under the TBCB process. With this project, Sterlite Power has ~INR 12,000 cr of projects under management.

Speaking on the development, Pratik Agarwal, Managing Director, Sterlite Power said, “Sterlite Power is proud to be building the green energy corridor that will enable the flow of 20 GW of renewable energy. We are committed to delivering this critical infrastructure project on time and to the highest standards of quality and safety.”

Beawar Transmission Limited will entail construction of three integral components – 1) a 350 km 765kV transmission corridor connecting the renewable energy zone of Fatehgarh III to the substation at Beawar, 2) Construction of a 3000 MVA 765/400kV Substation at Beawar, and 3) construction of two LILO lines, covering approximately 120 km. Sterlite Power will be the first private transmission infrastructure developer in the country to implement a STATCOM.

Earlier this year in March 2023, Sterlite Power won Part G Phase III of the project, titled Fatehgarh III Beawar Transmission Limited. With the completion of both Part F and G, the transmission line will be amongst the largest Green Energy Corridors to be built in the country.
