The Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) and Haryana Vidhyut Prasaran Nigam plan to strengthen the power transmission and distribution system in Mahendragarh district with an investment of Rs 200 crore. While stating this on Monday, a spokesman of DHBVN said, under the plan, the power utilities would construct 10 new substations.

The new substations included 220 Kv substation in Dhanauda, 132 Kv substations at Shekan, Pali and Mohanpur and 33 Kv substations at Majrakalan, Sobhapur, Dholeda, Bajad, Bhilbada and Bhoogarkan. Capacity of existing 33 KV substations at village Brara, Bawania and Nangal Sirohi is being augmented.

He added that Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam has completed the construction work of 33 Kv substation at village Budeen in Mahendragarh district at a cost of Rs 2.25 crore. The 10 MVA capacity transformer, set up at the substation, would get power from 220 Kv substation of Mahendragarh through a 8.5 kilometre long 33 Kv transmission line. It would supply power through 11 Kv feeders to seven villages namely Budeen, Shola, Shola Dhani, Blacha, Nim Bheda, Danaut, Bhakhri Ki Dhani.

He said that with the commissioning of this substation, over 2500 consumers of different categories, including 980 tubewells, would get benefit by way of increased voltage and regular power supply.

Construction of 33 Kv substation at village Budeen would give relaxation from overloading to the 33 Kv level system of 220 Kv substation Mahendragarh thus benefiting consumers of a number of other villages of the district.

He said that DHBVN has augmented capacity of a 33 Kv substation at village Jant and Model Town Rewari, which was also under operation circle Narnaul. The capacity of the substation of village Jant has been augmented from present 13 MVA to 18 MVA by replacing an old 5 MVA transformer with a new 10 MVA transformer at a cost of Rs 80 lakh.

The capacity of Model Town Rewari substation has been augmented from present 11 MVA to 18 MVA by replacing both the old transformers at a cost of Rs 63 lakh and it would benefit 12620 consumers of 14 villages and urban area of Rewari.
