RTCL was incorporated on December 20, 2012. RTCL entered into a TSA on July 24, 2013. The RTCL project is held by SGL2 and was awarded by the Ministry of Power on September 17, 2013 for a 35-year period from the scheduled commercial operation date of the RTCL Project, on a BOOM basis.
RTCL is expected to strengthen power transfer capability between the northern and western sectors of India’s power grid by evacuating electricity from two new nuclear reactors near RAPP (Rajasthan), known as Unit 7 and Unit 8, to the central Madhya Pradesh state grid. The project was undertaken in conjunction with the Nuclear Power Corporation of India’s Rajasthan Atomic Power Project.
RTCL operates one EHV overhead transmission line of approximately 403 ckms in the states of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, comprised of one 400 kV D/C line from Kota to Shujalpur. The project was fully commissioned in December, 2015.
Details of RTCL’s transmission lines and sub-stations are set forth as follows:
|Transmission line / Sub-Station||Location||Route length (ckms)||Specifications||Commission date||Contribution to total tariff|
|RAPP-Shujalpur||Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh||403||400 kV D/C||01/03/2016||100%|
