Govt. of India has set a target for establishing 175 GW renewable capacity by 2022 which includes 100 GW Solar, 60 GW Wind generation capacity. This includes wind potential of about 6GW in Bhuj complex, 2GW in Lakadia and 1.5GW in Dwarka. For integration and evacuation of power from generation projects in the above areas, a high capacity 765kV and 400kV transmission system interconnecting Bhuj, Lakadia, Banaskantha, Vadodara & Dwarka along with establishment of 765/400/220kV new substations at Bhuj-II & Lakadia and 400/220kV new substation at Jam Khambhaliya (Dwarka) have been planned.
The subject transmission scheme involves implementation of Lakadia – Banaskantha 765kV D/c line which is required for transfer of power from RE sources in the Bhuj, Lakadia & Dwarka complexes of Gujarat to Banaskantha for onward dispersal of power to their respective beneficiaries.
The proposal has been agreed in the 1st meeting of Western Region Standing Committee on Transmission (WRSCT) held on 5.9.2018. The same was agreed in the 3rd ECT meeting held on 21.12.2018 for implementation through TBCB route with a commissioning schedule of June 2021 or as per the progress of connectivity/LTA applications of RE projects from WEZ in Gujarat.
