TANGEDCO to set up sub-station for IT park

he Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation (TANGEDCO) will set up a separate power sub-station for the ELCOT Information Technology Park, which was recently inaugurated in Navalpattu in the city.

The TANGEDCO has planned to set up 230 KV sub-station at an outlay of about Rs.30 crore and has sought a site of 10 acres from the ELCOT for setting up the sub-station.

The 230 KV will be converted into 110 KV through a step-down process, before ensuring supply to the ELCOT, corporation sources told ‘The Hindu' here on Friday.

Work will be taken up shortly after the ELCOT handed over the site and is expected to be completed over a period of six months. The sources said that the TANGEDCO has made all arrangements for ensuring an assured power supply.

Demand for power

Initially, the ELCOT's demand for power was far less ranging between 5 to 10 MW and obviously the corporation had then sought five acres of land.

With the rise in demand for 65 MW, the corporation has planned to set up a sub-station with a capacity of 230 KV, source said.

The TANGEDCO will attach priority for the execution of the work. A transformer of 100 MVA capacity would be installed for the supply of power to the park, sources added.

Deputy Chief Minister M. K. Stalin inaugurated the IT Park, spread over in 147.61 acres, on December 9.

The IT Park has been given the status Special Economic Zone (SEZ).

The IT cum administrative building has a space of 50,000 sq. feet. With the setting up of this IT Park, the value of software exports from Tiruchi region is expected to increase several fold from the existing annual level of Rs. 26.21crore.
