The transmission corridor covered under the present project has been evolved to evacuate power from the proposed IPP generation projects in the Vemagiri area, Andhra Pradesh.

Vemagiri area in Andhra Pradesh has huge potential of Gas based generation projects due to availability of Gas in Krishna-Godavari basin. The availability of the Gas as fuel has attracted many IPP developers to establish power plants in the vicinity.

In this regard, 4 nos. of IPP generation projects with the total installed capacity of about 5400 MW have been granted LTA for quantum of 5150 MW. Further, as per the connectivity applications made, there are few more generation capacities likely to be available in the vicinity.

In view of above, considering the huge generation potential in this area a comprehensive transmission system has been planned so as to take care of the evacuation needs of generation projects of Vemagiri area. For this a 765/400 kV pooling station at Vemagiri (GIS) is to be established through LILO of Gazuwaka – Vijayawada 400kV S/c with bypass arrangements. All the power from different power plants will be pooled at this pooling station through 400kV transmission lines. The power so pooled at Vemagiri Pooling Station shall be further dispersed through high capacity transmission corridors of 2xD/c 765kV lines towards Hyderabad via Khammam to supply target beneficiaries in Southern region through displacement.

Further the generation project have target beneficiaries in Western Region & Northern Region of about 1230MW & 450 MW respectively, for this power transfer a 765kV high capacity corridor have been planned viz. Hyderabad – Wardha – Jabalpur Pooling station 765 kV D/c lines. These high capacity transmission lines in conjunction with the already planned High Capacity Power Transmission Corridor – IX i.e. Jabalpur Pooling Station – Orai – Bulandshahr 765 kV S/c shall provide adequate transmission capacity for transfer of power to target beneficiaries in NR.
