Chandigarh, November 14, 2017: Firming up its standing as one of India’s prominent transmission and distribution (T&D) companies excelling in adoption of latest technologies, Hartek Power, the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) arm of the Hartek Group, has bagged a prestigious order from the Haryana Vidyut Prasaran Nigam Ltd (HVPNL) for executing a 132-KV gas-insulated substation at the 31-acre National Cancer Institute of the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences in Jhajjar.

The scope of the project includes complete EPC of the 132-KV substation right from survey, design and engineering to supply, construction and project management.

This GIS project, which is scheduled to be completed by September next year, will cater to the electricity requirements of the entire National Cancer Institute campus comprising a 710-bed hospital, 15 laboratories for principal investigators and a separate diagnostics block.

Safer, low-weight, maintenance-free and more reliable with fewer outages, gas-insulated substations have emerged as the preferred choice in large cities, indoor locations, underground stations and hilly areas.

Being set up on the lines of the National Cancer Institute of USA at a cost of Rs 2,035 crore in Bhadsa village of Jhajjar district near Delhi, the AIIMS National Cancer Institute will cater to about 10 lakh patients every year and hire 2,700 employees at full capacity. Said to be the largest public health project of Independent India, the institute will act as a nodal centre for all cancer-related research with linkages with all Regional Cancer Centres of the country.

Terming the HVPNL order as an acknowledgement of Hartek Power’s expertise in the EPC of power systems, Hartek Group Chairman and Managing Director Mr Hartek Singh said, “This GIS project, which happens to be our first one, reflects our commitment to invest in most up-to-date technologies like GIS and thereby contribute to the country’s smooth transition to a smart and more reliable power infrastructure. The first GIS project of Hartek Power, it marks a high point for us in the adoption of the latest know-how.”

Hartek Power has created immense value in the T&D value chain, as reflected in its execution of more than 150 high-voltage and extra high-voltage substations and transmission lines. Some of the key projects executed by the company include 13 bays of a 220-KV substation at the first in-house 4x300-MW thermal plant of Reliance Energy at Shahjahanpur, UP, 132-KV substation projects for a 40-MW solar plant in Rajasthan and a 132-KV substation for L&T’s 40-MW project at Dhansa, Rajasthan.

An emerging player in renewable energy and a part and parcel of India’s solar sector, the company also provides complete solar EPC, turnkey and rooftop solar installation solutions. It has so far connected about 600 MW of solar power to the grid for leading independent power producers.
