Substation has been successfully commissioned right on 27th May 2017 Coinciding with Skipper’s annual day celebrations. It has 5 bays of 220kV and 9 bays of 66kV along with 2X160MVA, 220/66kV Power Transformers. The newly built 220kv Grid substation will increase the transmission capacity in Gurgaon city and will ensure uninterrupted power supply to the consumers.
Gas Insulated Substation (GIS) compared to the Air Insulated one’s gives the advantage of housing the entire substation equipment indoor, which eases the task of regular inspection, repair and maintenance. Another big advantage is space saving & its easy compatibility with the Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) for monitoring, control and data communication.
