Emami Cement Ltd at Kalinga Nagar Industrial Area in the Indian state of Odisha has improved its power supply following its connection to the inter-state 400/220kV New Duburi grid of Odisha Power Transmission Corp Ltd.

Emami was permitted to receive 15MVA power in 132kV from the power transmission company.

However, taking its future expansion into account, the cement producer applied for 15MVA power in 220kV.

AK Das Associates Ltd successfully completed the 220kV line along with substation worked for the project within the 10-month deadline. Emami, which initially faced power supply challenges, received it after the intervention of OPTCL CMD Hemant Sharma. Mr Sharma assured to construct an additional 220kV switching station at the premises of Emami for the future use of the power supplier. Project Head of Kalinga Nagar unit, PK Singh, said Emami will get uninterrupted 220kV power supply due to successful energisation of the plant.
