Powergrid commissions Transformer at Referral Hospital for power supply to oxygen plant

Dimapur, May 25 (NEx): Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (POWERGRID) has commissioned a transformer at Referral Hospital Sub-Station in Nagaland for reliable power supply to oxygen plant and nearby areas on May 22, 2021.

Responding to the call of the state Government, POWERGRID team set up and successfully commissioned the Power Transformer within 2 days on May 22nd, 2021, which would lead to reliable power supply to oxygen plant as well as nearby areas.

Earlier, to reduce the instances of power interruptions, and ensure efficient power supply to Nagaland’s only Oxygen Plant, Government of Nagaland, and its Department of Power Nagaland (DoPN) urged POWERGRID to commission a 10 Mega Volt Amperes (MVA) Transformer at Referral Hospital Sub-station, at Dimapur.

The new Power Transformer commissioned by POWERGRID at 33/11 kV Referral Hospital Nagaland will add to the power system reliability of BMA’s Liquid Plant situated at Naga United village, which was earlier fed by 5 MVA Transformer. By commissioning the transformer, quality power is now available to oxygen plant round-the-clock through 11 kV outgoing Rongmei feeder of Sub-station.

This work was completed by POWERGRID engineers during the strict lockdown following COVID-19 protocols as part of the North Eastern Region Power System Improvement Project (NERPSIP). NERPSIP is a Central sector plan scheme of the Ministry of Power, Government of India, envisioned to drive economic development of the North Eastern region of the country.

The scheme is being implemented through POWERGRID, in association with six beneficiary North Eastern states namely, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, and Tripura. The main objective of the project is Government of India’s commitment for the total economic development of North Eastern Region and to strengthen the Intra-State Transmission & Distribution Infrastructure in the North East region.
