Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate two power projects, one water treatment plant and launch the work of three other urban infrastructure projects on Friday, through a videoconferencing from New Delhi. The projects to be inaugurated by the Prime Minister are the Pugalur-Thrissur power transmission project, Kasaragod solar power project and water treatment plant at Aruvikkara. The project works to be launched are that of integrated command and control centre and smart road projects, both in Thiruvananthapuram. All the projects are funded by the Union government and are developed with the assistance of the state government.
The 320KV Pugalur (Tamil Nadu)-Thrissur power transmission project is a Voltage Source Converter (VSC)-based High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) Project. It uses India’s first HVDC link featuring state-of-the-art VSC technology. Built at a cost of Rs 5,070 crore, it would facilitate the transfer of 2,000 MW power from the western region and help meet the growth in load in Kerala.
The 50MW Kasaragod solar power project has been developed under the National Solar Energy Mission. Set up over 250 acres of land spread across Paivalike, Meenja and Chippar villages of Kasaragod district, it has been built with the central government’s investment of around Rs 280 crore.
The Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone of the integrated command and control centre at Thiruvananthapuram.
Projected to be built at a cost of Rs 94 crore, it is being set up to host smart solutions for Thiruvananthapuram municipal corporation and will act as a common point of action during emergency situations to facilitate coordinated action among police, fire and rescue, revenue, health and health departments.
The Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone of the Smart Roads Project in Thiruvananthapuram. The project, to be undertaken at an estimated cost of Rs 427 crore, envisages converting 37km of existing roads in Thiruvananthapuram to world-class smart roads by bringing all overhead utilities underneath and undertaking road and junction improvements.
The 75MLD (million litres per day) water treatment plant at Aruvikkara, built under the AMRUT Mission, will boost the supply of drinking water to the people of Thiruvananthapuram .
