Tata Power to Develop Underground Submersible Substation in Mumbai
Tata Power stated in a media release dated 27th January 2023 that it will be installing an underground submersible substation in South Mumbai.
This 400 KVA substation will be installed in the parking area of the Parel Receiving Station, and will enhance the reliability of power supply in adjoining areas. Since it will be located underground, it will be able to ensure smooth power supply even in case of emergencies such as floods and storms. Specifications of this substation include a 22KV submersible duty three-way Ring Man Unit and a 22kV/433V 400KVA Transformer with accessories that can support operations even when the substation is submerged.
Tata Power stated that 10 such substations will be installed in Mumbai by 2025.
