The AP Transco has bagged the prestigious 5th Enertia national best performing State power utility award for the second consecutive year for its excellent performance in reducing transmission and distribution losses from 18.34 per cent in 2009-10 to 17.76 per cent in 2010-11.

Representing Transco, K. Ranganatham, Joint MD, received the award, at function held in Mumbai on October 14. Transco was selected for the award by a 10-membeer jury headed by Anil Razdan, former Secretary, Ministry of Power, based on three basic parameters -- reduction in transmission and distribution losses, better availability of transmission lines for power generated, and lesser rate of transformer failure.
