In December, a new direct transmission line that connects a power plant in China to a substation in India was blown out by a faulty power line in a southern city.
A local fire department had to call in reinforcements.
The Indian authorities said it was not connected to a grid.
The Indian government has been trying to get the country’s grid back online, but it has also been facing issues with the direct transmission lines.
In December the government said it will spend $400 million ($600 million in cash and about $3 million in debt) to upgrade the lines and put in new equipment.
It also said it would make repairs in all areas that have been damaged by the blasts.
A few months later, the government also announced the opening of a new power line that will connect the plant to the rest of the country.
A new direct connection from the plant in the northern state of Gujarat to a new substation was shut down in November.
