OPTCL on a ‘Power for All’ mission

Bhubaneswar, August 24, 2017: A new batch of 150 young
technical professionals joined Odisha Power Transmission Corporation Limited
(OPTCL) on Thursday. Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik handed over appointment
letters to them in a function here and urged them to work with dedication for
realising our mission ‘Power for All’.
“Since 2010, over 1,581 professionals have joined it. It has
reflected positively on its performance as it achieved transmission system availability
for 99.96% and for which the State utility has been awarded by the Union
Ministry of Power. It is shouldering effectively the responsibility of
implementing various state-funded programmes,” said Patnaik.
By 2022, power consumption in Odisha is projected to rise to
30 million units, said Patnaik.
“OPTCL is geared up to meet the requirements of uninterrupted
quality power supply. It will add 57 new grids to its network by 2022,” added
the CM.
The Chief Minister also launched the rooftop solar project at
Jayadev Bhawan, which becomes the first Government building in Odisha to do so.
The rooftop solar project will be implemented in Government buildings across 15
cities and towns of the State.
