Underground lines reduce interruptions in power supply

HESCOM is working on laying underground (UG) cables in Belgaum city to prevent dangling wires, which pose danger to residents, especially during the monsoon. This Project envisages for Conversion of existing 11 KV Over Head Line to UnderGround cable system in Belgum City. The entire cost of the project is Rs.239.3 Crores.

The total length of the trunk line is 230 kms and that of the Loop line is 703 kms. The Conversion of existing 11 KV Over Head Line to UG cable system in Belgaum City is likely to be commenced by the first quarter of the 2015. The tender for the same has been floated. The Completion & Commissioning period is 18 months( Excluding Monsoon) from the date of issue of order.


  1. Laying of 3CX240Sqmm and 3CX95 HT. XLPE UG Cable for Looping of existing DTC’s between the Proposed RMUs.
  2. Laying of 3CX400Sq mm XLPE HT UG Cable for 11kV Trunk lines.
  3. Providing 11kV Class VCB Type MEI Make Compact RMU’s at the following locations.

After replacing overhead power lines would result in reducing the number of interruptions in power supply due to falling of trees, overturning of poles and snapping of power conductors. Also it was possible to reduce the energy losses by switching over to underground cables.
