PKTCL project has been brought into existence, keeping in view of the growing generation capacity in the Eastern region. It was much needed to strengthen the interconnection of the state grids with regional grids to facilitate exchange of additional power between them. The Project involves the establishment of two 400 kV Double Circuit transmission lines and has been awarded on a ‘Build, Own, Operate and Maintain’ basis.
Following transmission lines have been planned as a ‘system strengthening scheme’ for exchange of power between West Bengal Grid and inter-state transmission system.
