Srinagar, Apr 21: Managing Director (MD), Kashmir Power Distribution Corporation Ltd (KPDCL), M Yasin Choudhary test charged 33/11 KV, 1x 6.3 MVA Nihalpora Receiving Station thereby addressing the long pending demands of the people of Patan and Tangmarg.
The Nihalpora Receiving station outgoing feeder will feed power to the people of Patan which will decrease the overall demand on the already existing Patan Receiving Station thud bringing respite to the people of the Patan and Tangmarg by providing better and reliable power to both the sections of the society through load division.
Its is wirth mentioning here that before commissioning of Nihalpora Receiving Station, part of Tangmarg and Patan was being fed from the existing Patan Receiving station due to which the outgoing 11KV feeder was heavily overloaded specially during winters with a peak demand of 12 MWs leading to forced curtailments.
With addition of Nihalpora Receiving Station to the system, the total load stands equally segregated between the two parts of the society by way of creation of two separate 11KV outgoing feeders instead of one, which in turn will provide better and reliable power supply to the people of Patan and Tangmarg specially during winters.
Meanwhile, Managing Director, KPDCL also visited Shopian on 19th April and took review of progress of various electrical works being executed by Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd (PGCIL).
These include Augmentations/ Upgradations of already existing 33/11 KV Receiving stations at Landoora, Batpora and Reshipora of District Shopian under PMDP Scheme.
The MD KPDCL on spot directed the officials of PGCIL and KPDCL to complete the augmentations within shortest period of time, so that the people of district Shopian will be provided with a better quality of power supply round the clock and meet their long pending demands.
It is worthwhile to mention, that with these augmentations in district Shopian, the overall power handling capacity of these Receiving Stations will increase from its existing 32.6 MVA to 56.3 MVA.
At both the districts, MD KPDCL was accompanied by Senior Officials of KPDCL and PGCIL including SE Sopore (North) and SE Pulwama (South) of KPDCL.
