Among the largest
projects in over
over 15,000 people
across the globe
Bhutan (Ongoing Project)
The project was for supply and construction of two 400 kV double circuit transmission line for Bhutan Power Corporation Ltd. The highlights of the project were passing the line through dense forests at high altitudes going up to 2400 meters. The hilly terrain also meant head loading up to 20 km for some locations.
The turnkey project of 400 kV and 220 kV transmission lines in Kenya for the Kenya Electricity Transmission Company Ltd. (KETRACO). The key challenges faced included work through the Kenya Wild Life area using Right of Way passes. The rocky terrain and volcanic areas containing black soil was particularly difficult for passing the line. Company trained local workforce for tower erection and cable stringing works due to work permits challenges.
Zambia (Ongoing Project)
A turnkey transmission line project of 330 kV single circuit in Zambia. Amongst the key features of this project was the use of Lidar data for survey. The 55 km double circuit line is the first of its kind in Zambia and is on an island. The challenging project included commuting using pontoons and working in heavy rainfall for almost half of the year, making logistics, transportation and material shipment was particularly difficult.
An Asian Development Bank (ADB) funded turnkey project of 132 kV D/C (with OPGW) in Sri Lanka. The key features of the project are its British Standard design and the successfully executed Rock Anchor Pull-out test. The main challenge of the project was the narrow 4 month working window due to monsoon occurring twice in Sri Lanka. In spite of 100 day delay in supply of materials, the project was completed within contractual timeline.
A PPP project from Madhya Pradesh Power Transmission Ltd. to develop, operate and maintain 400 kV DCDS transmission line from Sarni (2x250 MW Satpura Thermal
Power Plant) to Ashta (Hakimabad 400/220 kV S/S).
The highlights of the project include work for 585 meter river crossing across the river Narmada between towers. The tower parts were supplied in newly introduced method of tower-wise bundling from factory yard.
Egypt (Ongoing Project)
A World Bank funded turnkey project of over US$ 100 million for design, testing, manufacturing, supply, installation and commissioning of 500 kV
double circuit triple conductor per phase, Overhead transmission line from Suez Gulf to Samalaut substation in Egypt for the Egyptian Electricity
Transmission Company. The line route passes through the demanding desert terrain, agricultural areas as well as across the river Nile.
The key challenges of the project are managing resources and logistics in the remote desert landscape. Material store yard, main site office and residential premises for the staff are located mid-way on the line route from where the nearest town is at distance of 150 km.
