the southern and national electricity grids.

"BHEL has completed the construction of a sub-station at Raichur in Karnataka, the southern end of the Raichur-Solapur transmission link of PowerGrid," the company said in a statement today.

The government said on January 1 that the southern grid had been linked with the national grid following the commissioning of the Raichur-Solapur transmission line. The line had been commissioned five months ahead of the May 31, 2014, deadline at a cost of about Rs 815 crore.

BHEL's work on the project included design, engineering, manufacturing, supply, erection, testing and commissioning of the substation.

The project will allow electricity to be carried to the southern region from other parts of the country during peak demand as well as transfer surplus power from the south during off-peak hours, it said.

BHEL is currently associated in the execution of an Ultra High-Voltage Multi-terminal DC (direct current) transmission link between the northeast and Agra, it added.

BHEL shares were up 0.24 per cent to Rs 166.50 on the BSE.
