RUMSL will provide the power evacuation infrastructure (RUMSL Internal Evacuation Infrastructure), comprising one 33/220 kV outdoor sub-station associated with and dedicated to the project, in respect of the project at the Neemuch Solar Park site (Project Substation).

The project substation will also comprise two 110 MVA transformers and five 220 kV bays, including the transformer feeders and nine 33 kV circuit terminals to enable connections to the project, and one single circuit 220 kV transmission line connecting the 220 kV side of the project substation to the bay at the 220/400 kV substation.
