Power Sector Updates


Addition to Power Generation during April-Jul FY15-16: 3,780 MW

Total Addition till Jul 2015 during 12th plan: 64,794 MW (Achievement of 73% against 12th Plan Target)

Total installed Capacity at the end of July 2015: 2,75,912 MW


Addition in ‘CKM’ during 12th Plan Up to July 2015


Addition in MVA/ MW during 12th Plan Up to July 2015

Sub-Station completion is better of than Transmission Lines. In remaining 2 years of 12th plan, focus will be on completion of 765 kV & 800 kV HVDC Transmission Lines & Sub-Stations.

IEEMA Division Wise Growth Index

Period: April-June 2015 over April-June 2014

S. No.Name of Division% GrowthObservations

Overall growth in Power, Control & LD Cables supported by Exports


Growth in HT Capacitors

Decline in LT Capacitor due to lack of domestic orders

3Instrument Transformer11.0

Growth in CTs – Indoor & Outdoor & PTs – Indoor & EMVTs

Mostly from Domestic orders for Medium Voltage


Overall growth except for Insulators for Transformers

5Energy Meter37.8

Growth in Single and Poly phase Meter – Domestic & Exports

6Rotating Machine3.9

Decline in LT Squirrel Cage Motors,  Recovery in HT Motors & Flame proof motors; FHP single phase Motors growth consistent

7Surge Arrester3.7

Increase in Porcelain Surge Arresters however sharp decrease
in Polymer; decrease in Export of Surge Arresters

8LV Switchgear10.7

Growth in MCB, ELCB, ACB; decline in Contactor and S/F & F/S

9MV+HV Switchgear-5.3

Overall Decline in breakers due to lack of domestic orders & Imports

10Tr. Line Towers-25.6

Decline continues in domestic orders   & growth in export orders

11Conductors47.3Turn around in growth due to rise in domestic off-take

Growth for 33 kV & above 110 kV Transformers, Export surges for distribution Transformers.

Approx. 10% Decline in OBP for EHV TRF; signs of concern!

Turn around growth for Transformers, Conductors, Meters during 1st Qtr FY 16
Growth continue to led by heavy weight sectors like Cable, Switchgear, Conductor only
10% decline in OBP of Transformer is a concern
Despite volume growth; reportedly decline in sales due to decline in RM prices & margins
