MUMBAI URJA MARG TRANSMISSION PROJECT
Mumbai Urja Marg is an inter-state transmission system project covering Western Region Strengthening Scheme-XIX (WRSS-XIX) and North Eastern Region Strengthening Scheme-IX (NERSS-IX) spanning across Maharashtra, Gujarat, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. This is a single project with various sub-elements as conceptualized by the Ministry of Power.
The Package C of Mumbai Urja Marg Transmission project involves setting up of ~100 kms of transmission lines for critical system strengthening in Mumbai Metropolitan Region(MMR). Once operational. the project will have the potential to carry more than ~2000 MW of additional power to Mumbai and Navi Mumbai while also establishing a much needed transmission corridor to enable increased power flow across the state.
Mumbai Urja Marg will be also critical to prevent future blackouts in Mumbai Metropolitan region by decongesting the entire transmission network and providing an ISTS feed for upcoming Vikhroli substation which was cited as the major intervention to avoid future power outages. Not only this, one of the strongest benefits of the Mumbai Urja Marg Project is that it establishes the last mile connectivity of Mumbai with Padgha to bring renewable power to MMR.
With the promise of 24×7, affordable and green power flow across the state, Mumbai Urja Marg is well poised to be a true gamechanger for Maharashtra.
