This 120-km length project from Barapukuria to Bogura has been secured on turnkey basis. The project will be executed in 30-months and funding will be done by EXIM Bank India under Indian Line of Credit.

Mr Desh Raj Pathak, Vice President, Projects (Transmission & Distribution), Tata Projects Ltd, said, “We are proud to have secured this transmission line project in Bangladesh since it reaffirms our expertise and experience in executing world-class transmission and distribution projects. As reliable and world-class power transmission infrastructure is necessary for a nation’s development – we are keen to play a role in Bangladesh’s progress.”

The transmission line is expected to also result into the expansion of high voltage transmission infrastructure in the northern parts of Bangladesh. It will also facilitate 1600 MW power transmission from power plants based in Jharkhand to Bangladesh.

The entire transmission line will be constructed on Pile Foundation and will be strung 100 per cent with high tension low sag conductor. This project is unique since such technologies have not yet been used in Bangladesh’s T&D sector.

TATA Projects operates through its four Strategic Business Groups (SBGs) namely Industrial Systems SBG, Core Infra SBG, Urban Infra SBG, and Services SBG.

The company provides turnkey end-to-end solutions to set up power generation plants, power transmission & distribution systems, fully integrated rail & metro systems, commercial buildings & airports, chemical process plants, water and wastewater management solutions, complete mining and metal purification systems. It has expertise in executing large and complex urban and industrial infrastructure projects.

“The company is driven to deliver projects on-time, using world-class project management techniques and has uncompromising standards for safety and sustainability,” TATA Projects states.
