TP Central Odisha Distribution Limited (TPCODL), the joint venture between Tata Power and Odisha Government for power distribution, has completed various preventive safety measures, as part of its monsoon preparedness drive, to ensure seamless power supply and safety of customers during this monsoon season.
On a priority basis the company has carried out aggressive tree trimming along the feeders and de-vegetation at primary and distribution sub-stations to avoid falling of trees/branches on electrical installations, poles and wires leading to unsafe conditions.
TPCODL team carried out DSS vegetation cleaning at nearly 1500 locations and resorted to tree trimming at more than 3,500 locations across its five circles.
As part of preventive maintenance initiatives, TPCODL undertook leakage current testing drive at around 2,500 locations and rectified faults wherever found along with overhauling of the power transformers, oil filling in the transformer tanks and prevention of oil leakages.
The company has installed interposing poles at high sagging areas, installed polymeric lightning arresters, installed and repaired earthing systems and created provision for submersible pump sets for the low lying Primary Sub-stations.
TPCODL has also ensured adequate manpower and 24X7 vehicle availability for maintenance and breakdown services with quick response time. Gumboots and raincoats have been arranged for MOC and technicians.
