Smart HVDS: Improving Utility Infrastructure through HVDS System under CPEC
Under this project it is proposed to implement smart High Voltage Distribution System (HVDS) system in the province for technical loss reduction by improving ratio of HT to LT lines.
The smart HVDS project is aimed to reconfigure the existing low voltage (LT) network as High Voltage Distribution System, wherein the 11kV line is taken as near to the loads as achievable and the LT power supply is fed from small capacity transformer and minimum length of LT line. The sensor nodes continuously monitor and meter the infrastructure for fault and theft activities in real time.
The proposed project will help in increasing the HT/LT ratio, replace larger transformers with smaller ones, install sensors throughout the network and consumers will be provided with connections from transformer tapings that will be metered and monitored thus, leaving no possibility of theft. HT extension will reduce faults and improve voltage regulation. Installation of sensors along HT line will help detect faults and report. The system will return through reduction in losses.
The scope of project includes establishment of industry, marketing at national and international level and its appropriate commercialization. The project will be based in Peshawar.
The investor will invest 5 million USD and will generate resources upto US$ 66.00 million after 5 years. The product has lot of potential in terms of market and is an ideal solution for high losses. The project will take 18 months to complete.
It's a viable business proposal and can be executed through preferably Public Private Partnership (BOOT/BOT) or any other mode mutually agreed by both the parties. The project is open for all the state-owned, state-supported and private entities. The government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will facilitate investors for interaction with relevant agencies and is committed to partner with the investor by providing all basic infrastructure in execution of project.
The investors friendly security situation already prevails in the province.
