Alstom T&D India has successfully charged three switchyard bays, at 765kV and 400kV each, in a record time of eight months. A company statement issued in early June said that the bays at Bhiwani in Haryana were commissioned in March 2012 for Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd.

PGCIL had awarded the contract worth Rs.196 crore to Alstom T&D India in February 2010. Due to delay in land acquisition the company could start work on the 765kV switchyard only in July 2011. The scope of work included design, manufacture, supply, erection, testing and commissioning of 765kV, 400kV and 220kV equipment, with complete civil work.

This Bhiwani switchyard is considered as a nodal switchyard for wheeling power from independent power producers in northern India and strengthening the transmission system in the northern region of the country. The switchyard shall cater to various other 765kV switchyards in northern India namely Moga, Jhatikara, Meerut and Jaipur.
