  • Sterlite Power Secures Funding Worth INR 1373 crore from PFC for Neemrana II Kotputli Transmission Project

    Published on May 30, 2024

     Bengaluru : Sterlite Power, a leading power transmission company, has successfully achieved financial closure for its Neemrana II Kotputli Transmission Limited (NKTL) project. The project has secured funds totaling INR 1373 crore from Power Finance Corporation (PFC), a Maharatna Public Sector Enterprise.

    Commenting on this milestone, Raji George, Director-Corporate Finance, Sterlite Power, said, “We are pleased to conclude the financial deal for one of our largest GEC projects with one of India’s largest and most reputed financial institution in the power sector–PFC. This deal is a show of trust by PFC in our capability to deliver some of the most challenging and impactful transmission projects in the country.”

    Sterlite Power acquired the Neemrana II Kotputli Transmission Limited SPV in November 2023 to execute the green energy corridor on a Build, Own, Operate, and Transfer (BOOT) basis for a period of 35 years. The project encompasses the development of two critical components: a state-of-the-art 6000 MVA, 765/400kV substation at Neemrana and a 400 kV transmission line network spanning approximately 250 kilometers. This network will establish vital interconnections, linking the Neemrana substation to the existing Kotputli substation, while also facilitating a LILO (Line-In Line-Out) that will seamlessly integrate the Neemrana II substation with the Gurgaon and Sohna substations through the existing Gurgaon-Sohna line.

    Sterlite Power has a strong track record of achieving financial closure of many of its projects within months of SPV acquisition. Earlier in February 2024, the company achieved the closure of funding for Beawar Transmission Limited from REC Power Development and Consultancy Limited – a wholly owned subsidiary of REC. This is a testimony of the continued trust reposed on the company by the banking and investor community.
