Our work on the transmission line for Jabalpur Transmission Company Limited (JTCL) initially faced ROW clearance issues during the planning phase. This was augmented by force majeure events, delays in obtaining forest clearances and a delay in obtaining authorization under Section 164 of the Electricity Act.
To obtain the ROW, overcome delays in clearance, and procure authorizations, our teams worked simultaneously with various entities to ensure that execution could be carried out in a timely manner. Delays on the project were compensated using heli-stringing to connect conductors between transmission towers.
JTCL operates two EHV overhead transmission lines of 994 ckms in the states of Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh comprising one 765 kV dual circuit line of 758 ckms from Dharamjaygarh (Chhattisgarh) to Jabalpur (Madhya Pradesh) and one 765 kV single circuit line of 236 ckms from Jabalpur to Bina in Madhya Pradesh. We believe that the Jabalpur-Dharamjaygarh line of JTCL is India’s first 765 KV double circuit line owned by a private company. The JTCL Project was fully commissioned in September 2015.
