Adani Transmission Project Maharashtra

Adani Transmission Limited (ATL), one of the largest private sector power transmission company operating in India, has received the Letter of Intent (LOI) from Maharashtra State Electricity Transmission Company Limited (MSETCL) to build, own, operate and maintain a transmission project in the state of Maharashtra for a period of 35 years. This will be the first-ever 400 kV substation facility in the city of Mumbai.

The project “Kharghar Vikhroli Transmission Private Limited” comprises of approximately 34 km of 400 kV and 220 kV transmission lines along with 400kV GIS Substation at Vikhroli in Mumbai.

“This project is critical to the city of Mumbai as the existing capacity of transmission corridor is not sufficient to carry further power into the city. This project would enable additional power to be brought into Mumbai and would thus help in meeting the future demand of the city. The project has been awarded to Adani Transmission through Tariff Based Competitive Bidding Process.

“This win in the state of Maharashtra will not only help the Company reinforce its position as the largest private sector transmission company operating in India but also allow additional sources of power and bring down the cost of power for the citizens of Mumbai,” the company issued in a statement.

In October, the company had announced that it has received a letter of intent (LOI) from REC Transmission Projects to build, own, operate and maintain a transmission project in Gujarat for a period of 35 years.

The project Lakadia Banaskantha Transco Ltd will comprise of about 360 circuit km of a 765-kilovolt direct line along with 765 kV bays at Lakadia and Banaskantha substations. It is primarily being constructed to establish a transmission system associated with long-term applications from Gujarat’s wind and solar energy zone in Radhanesda.

The transmission line will be used to evacuate power to the Lakadia pooling station. The project was awarded to Adani Transmission through a tariff-based competitive bidding process.
