Tata Power-DDL supports relief and rehabilitation work in Kerala

Dispatches 473Km length of cables to Kerala State Electricity Board for faster restoration of power supply

Tata Power Delhi Distribution (Tata Power-DDL) has dispatched seven trucks loaded with 473km length of cables to assist the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB). The KSEB is working on a war footing to resurrect the power network in the state after the devastating floods which lashed the entire state in the month of July 2018. The relief and rehabilitation initiative is a part of Tata Power-DDL’s CSR activity.

The 2 core 2.5 sqmm 1.1 KV grade cables, 473km in length, were dispatched to KSEB sub-regional stores power house in Aluva, Ernakulum district, on September 1 and 2, from Tata Power-DDL headquarters in New Delhi. The KSEB has confirmed receipt of the cables and thanked Tata Power-DDL for its support.

Sanjay Banga, CEO, Tata Power-DDL, said, “Disaster management has key challenges — to provide immediate medical aid, arranging for food and shelter, and restoration of electricity and provision of drinking water. The early restoration of power supply significantly contributes towards faster relief and rehabilitation work. It not only restores public confidence but also sends a message that things are under control. We’re happy to contribute for the faster recovery of Kerala.”

Tata Power-DDL had previously helped in relief and rehabilitation work during flashfloods in Uttarakhand in 2013 and post the Hudhud cyclone in Vizag in 2014.
