Adani Transmission Ltd has received two Letters of Intent (LoI) to augment the country’s transmission network in the face of surging renewable additions.
As per media reports, the first LoI has been issued by PFC Consulting Limited. The transmission project would be established in Rajasthan on build, own, operate, and maintain basis. The Bikaner – Khetri Transmission project will have around 480 circuit kilometers of a 765 kV line combining a transmission system. This project is mainly being constructed to facilitate transmission system related to long term applications from Rajasthan Solar Zone, Part-D.
Of this, around 11,347 circuit kilometers and 18,330 MVA is operational. This is inclusive of the benchmark distribution network catering to consumers in Mumbai. Focused on developing supporting infrastructure for renewable energy in the country, the company intends to establish 20,000 circuit kilometers of transmission lines by 2022.
Additionally, Adani Transmission has also received a LoI from REC Transmission Projects Company for a transmission project in Gujarat. The project will be established on a build, own, operate, and maintain basis for 35 years. The project consists of around 272 circuit kilometers of 765 kV line and 3,000 MVA transformation capacity. This project is being constructed to strengthen the transmission system for relieving overloads that have been identified in the Gujarat intra-state system due to renewable energy injection in Bhuj.
