Sterlite Power has commissioned the Lakadia-Vadodara Transmission Project Limited (LVTPL), a green energy corridor project that will provide 5000 MW in renewable energy from Bhuj and Kutch in Gujarat, India, toward the national grid. The project required an investment of $247 million and is a key part of a 30,000 MW Hybrid renewable energy park being built in Kutch.

LVTPL links Vadodara and Lakadia via a 765 kV double-circuit transmission line that spans 335 km running through 812 towers across seven districts in Gujarat. The project will play a role in helping India achieve its vision of relying on 500 GW of renewable energy by 2030.

Sterlite Power was awarded the project in 2019 and initiated work in 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic. The company utilized novel construction techniques such as well point system, pocket foundation and distinctive tower designs to provide sturdy power infrastructure that can hold out in difficult terrain in the region.
