New HVDC link boosts India-BD power transmission capacity

Siemens has commissioned the second block of a high-voltage direct-current (HVDC) back-to-back link in Bheramara, Bangladesh.

With this commissioning, Siemens has helped establish a new electricity supply connectivity between India and Bangladesh with a transmission capacity of up to 500 megawatt (MW), according to a report by www.power-technology.com.

The company noted that the first block of HVDC has been operational since 2013. This block offers a transmission capacity of up to 500MW.

With block 01 and 02 operating in parallel, the Bheramara HVDC back-to-back link has attained nearly 1,000MW power transmission capacity and is reported to be the highest reliable power capacity in Bangladesh.

Electricity will be supplied to India from Bheramara through a 230KV grid, which will be connected via a substation and overhead lines to India`s 400KV grid.

Siemens Energy Management Transmission Solutions CEO Mirko Düsel said: "The availability of reliable power transmission is crucial for emerging countries like Bangladesh. Therefore, we`re especially pleased to hand over Block 02 of the Bheramara HVDC back-to-back link to the Power Grid Company of Bangladesh (PGCB).

"After only 24 months project execution time and 3.0 million safe working hours at the site, the link will help Bangladesh to reliably import the annually needed additional electricity of 500MW from India.

"The HVDC link enables a constant, affordable and reliable power supply for the people and economy in Bangladesh and helps in consolidating the grid stability of the densely populated state."

On 27 July, a trial run of block 02 was completed, though this block has been put into commercial operation since 02 July.
