Port Blair, July 5: The general public have been informed that the Electricity Department is taking various effective measures for improving the power supply in A&N Islands. As a step towards this, relay coordination among all stations for isolating faulty feeders to restrict faults from travelling to power houses / sub-stations was done to prevent grid collapse. Massive HT / LT line clearance in tie lines / feeders was executed through outsource to increase reliability. The Department has installed two hiring plants of 10 MW & 5 MW capacity at Bambooflat under PPA to meet the increasing peak demand. Simultaneously, two Battery Energy Storage projects are in pipeline and are expected to be commissioned by 2026 to deal with grid stability issues and solar intermittency.
