Indian engineering company TATA Projects has announced the completion of 110km stretch of the 200km Surathani-Phuket transmission line project in Thailand.
The 500kV transmission line which passes through forests and mountainous terrains will bring additional electricity to Phuket, improving the lives of citizens.
Of the total 110km transmission line, approximately 80km was completed by Tata Projects while the remaining was executed by its partner.
Drone technology was utilised by the company for stringing of transmission lines to reduce timeframe and avoid manual work.
Tata Projects chief operating officer Vivek Gautam said: “We are proud to complete this important transmission line project which is a true testimony of our top-notch expertise and vast experience.
“With 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, the company shall continue to deliver projects on-time, using world-class project management techniques and uncompromising standards of safety.”
Tata Project previously completed an 80km Roi Et 2 – Chaiyaphum 2 Transmission Line project
The firm said that the project is claimed to be the first 500 kV transmission line passing from Phang-nga province in Southern Thailand.
Previously, Tata Project-led consortium had completed an 80km stretch of 500kV Roi Et 2 – Chaiyaphum 2 Transmission Line project in August last year.
It was the first executed transmission line project for the company in Thailand.
Of the total, the company has secured three orders from HPCL Rajasthan Refinery (HRRL) and one from Bharat Petroleum Corporation (BPCL).
