DPS Grewal, Director, Distribution, Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL), today directed the officials of the distribution wing to complete the maintenance of all 11-kv feeders by December 15 and further asked them to ensure proper coordination with the protection and maintenance (P and M) wing with regard to shutdowns so that no planned shutdown was longer than five-hour duration.

Grewal was presiding over a meeting of senior PSPCL officials to review the power situation with the local distribution officials, P&M wing and industrial associations. He discussed the maintenance schedule of the grid sub-stations, 66-kv lines and 11-kv feeders.

The meeting was attended, among others, by Chief Engineer P & M Joshan, Deputy Chief Engineer (West Circle) Sanjeev Prabhakar, Deputy Chief Engineer (East Circle) HS Gill, SE P & M KS Sandhu, Deputy Chief Engineer, Khanna Circle HS Dhillon, SE (Suburban Circle) Sarabjit Singh and Senior executive engineers of various divisions, including JS Garcha, Tiwana, Parminder Singh, Ramesh Kaushal, MP Singh and BS Sidhu.

He told the representatives of industrial bodies that the PSPCL had approved a DPR (detailed project report) worth Rs 25 crore for the improvement of industrial feeders under East and West Circles in the city and work for the same would commence from the second week of December 2020 so that it could be completed before the next paddy season. He added that there was no shortage of material in the central stores.
