The rough terrain in the north-east of India and ROW issues in the region meant that the project’s planning would have to be meticulous. The large river crossings would add a layer of complexity during the execution phase. The region’s vulnerability to earthquakes and flooding could also affect construction efforts for the project.
Our robust surveying methods ensured that the challenges due to rough terrain were minimal. ROW-related issues were overcome by multiple teams working with various stakeholders simultaneously to provide timely permission in the planning phase. The piling for each transmission tower was carried out after factoring in the vulnerability and tolerances required to withstand the forces of nature.
The project involves the establishment of two 400 kV Double Circuit transmission lines (with a total line length of 452 km) that passes through the Indian states of Assam, West Bengal, and Bihar. The company would operate and maintain these for a minimum tenure of 25 years.
