On 6th January 2014, BHEL announced that it has commissioned a 765/400 kV Raichur-Sholapur Transmission Link Synchronously-operated National Grid formed for One Nation-One Grid-One Frequency.

Six months ahead of the contractual schedule, Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has achieved a major milestone in its transmission business by successfully constructing and commissioning the substation at Raichur in Karnataka, the Southern end of the 765 kV Raichur-Sholapur transmision link of POWERGRID.

Significantly, with the commissioning of the 765kV Raichur-Sholapur transmission link, the Southern Grid has been synchronized with the N-E-W Grid thus forming the synchronously operated National Grid, thereby fulfilling the ambition of One Nation- One Grid-One Frequency. BHEL’s scope of work in the project included design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, erection, testing and commissioning of the 765/400 kV Substation package at Raichur. This project will allow import of electricity from other regions to the Southern region during peak demand as well as export of surplus power from the Southern region during off-peak demand.
