Tata Projects Completes 110 km Transmission Line Project in Thailand

TATA Projects, with its consortium partners, has completed the work on a 110 km stretch of the 200-km Surathani-Phuket transmission line project in Thailand.

TATA Projects, one of India’s fastest growing infrastructure companies has announced that it has, along with its consortium partners, completed the work on an important 110 km stretch of the 200-km Surathani-Phuket transmission line project in Thailand. The consortium is counting the work as a milestone as the 500 kV transmission line passes through thick jungles and mountainous terrain.

The project will bring additional electricity to Phuket thereby improving the lives of citizens. Out of the 110-km stretch, about 80-km was executed by TATA Projects and the remaining by its partner. The company utilised drone technology for stringing of transmission lines thereby reducing timeframe and avoiding manual work.

“We are proud to complete this important transmission line project which is a true testimony of our top-notch expertise and vast experience. With the successful completion of our second transmission line project in Thailand, we have once again proved our execution capabilities not only in India but also around the world. Going forward, we shall continue to deliver projects on-time, using world-class project management techniques and uncompromising standards of safety,” said Vivek Gautam, COO – TATA Projects Ltd, while speaking about the project.

A unique aspect of this project is that it is the first 500 KV Transmission line passing from Phang-nga province. Phang-nga is a province in Southern Thailand, bordering the Andaman Sea on the West Coast of the Malay Peninsula.

Prior to this Surath- Phuket transmission line project, TATA Project led consortium had successfully executed an 80-km stretch of 500kV Roi Et 2 – Chaiyaphum 2 Transmission Line project in August 2019. It was the company’s first successfully executed transmission line project in Thailand.

In July, we had reported on NV Energy’s plans for Greenlink Nevada, a transmission and renewable energy initiative that will transform Nevada’s clean energy landscape. The project is comprised of two distinct transmission line segments that, once completed, will allow access to and future development of Nevada’s renewable energy resources.

Construction on the project is slated to begin in 2020 and will be fully completed in 2031.
