Mumbai, Mar 10( PTI)The Maharashtra State Transmission Company Ltd (MSETCL) on Wednesday recorded the highest ever power transmission of 25,800 MW at 11.16 am due to the use of latest technology and preventive maintenance, Energy Minister Nitin Raut said.

This record was achieved without any load-shedding.

Raut said soon after assuming the office, he had asked the MSETCL to use latest technology and preventive maintenance to improve availability of transmission network.
'I encouraged the MSETCL to use infrared, thermal and drone cameras for outage management. Hence, technical snags and hotspots were detected in time. It minimized the incidents of breakdown in transmission network, improving the availability of power,' he said.
The power demand in the state is on the rise as the state economy is now returning to normalcy. Today, MahaVitaran recorded demand of 22,339 MW. Earlier, the MSETCL recorded power transmission of 24,200 MW on October 22, 2018. PTI MR NP NP
