Adani Transmission wins 2 renewable energy projects worth Rs 1,400 cr – EQ Mag Pro


The Karur Transmission Project in Tamil Nadu is worth Rs 200 crore; the one in Gujarat is for Rs 1,200 crore.

Adani Transmission Ltd (ATL) :the largest power transmission company in India — has won two projects, which will offer connectivity to crucial renewable energy projects in Gujarat and Tamil Nadu.

In a statement, ATL said it had been awarded a 400-kV Karur Transmission Project in Tamil Nadu worth Rs 200 crore. It also won the Rs 1,200-crore Khavda-Bhuj project, which forms part of India’s largest renewable evacuation system.

The Khavda Bhuj project will help evacuate about 3 GW of renewable energy from Khavda, Gujarat. The location is being developed to be India’s single largest hub of solar and wind power generation systems with estimated capacity of close to 30GW. State-owned NTPC Ltd alone is constructing a 4.7 GW solar farm.

Adani Green Energy, the sister concern of ATL, is planning to construct a 9.5 GW solar wind hybrid park in Khavda.

The company said the transmission project will consist of approximately 220 circuit km (ckm) of transmission line connecting Khavda pooling station with Bhuj pooling station and a 4,500 MVA, 765 kV substation at Khavda.

This project will be the first to be implemented among the slew of transmission projects planned by the Government of India for evacuation of renewable energy from the region. ATL is already the leader in building power transmission infrastructure in the private sector and this project will further strengthen our presence in Gujarat,” said Anil Sardana, MD and CEO, ATL.

Another project won in Karur, Tamil Nadu, would be for evacuation of wind energy. The company said it will entail establishment of 2x500MVA, 400/230 kV Karur Pooling Station, at a location between Karur Wind Energy Zone and Tiruppur Wind Energy Zone. This is the first inter-state transmission project in Tamil Nadu.

Sardana said winning these projects would take ATL closer to its target of setting up 20,000 ckt km of transmission lines by 2022.

ATL has a transmission network of Rs 18,500 ckt km, of which 13,400 ckt km is operational and 5,100 ckt km (including these projects) is at various stages of construction.
