ENICL was incorporated on February 1, 2007. ENICL entered into a TSA dated August 6, 2009 and a transmission services agreement dated January 28, 2013 with PGCIL. The ENICL project was awarded by the Ministry of Power on January 7, 2010 for a 25-year period from the date of issue of the license by CERC, on a BOOM basis. We acquired ENICL from the Sterlite Sponsor in May, 2020.
ENICL operates two EHV overhead transmission lines of approximately 909 ckms in the states of Assam, Bihar and West Bengal, comprising one 400 kV D/C line of approximately 443 ckms from Bongaigaon (Assam) to Siliguri (West Bengal) and one 400 kV D/C line of approximately 466 ckms from Purnia (Bihar) to Biharsharif (Bihar). The project was fully commissioned in November 2014.
