An unprecedented rise in power demand, aging infrastructure & limited availability of resources has placed extraordinary pressure on utilities. The challenge is to establish capacity augmentation in an economic manner, within shortest possible time, with minimum disruption. As a result, utility operators face decisions of whether to build new infrastructure or increase capacity of the existing electrical infrastructure.
Network congestion, low corridor intensity and constraint power capacity are the prime pain points of the existing transmission infrastructure.
2x to 3x increase in throughput is achieved by replacing the old conductors with High Performance Conductor solutions on the existing corridors, which meet the same mechanical sag and load conditions of the existing towers. This is done using minimal shutdown of 6 to 8 hours daily.
Our uprating solutions reduce the losses and better the tower clearances and loading conditions. Hence, increasing the transmission capacity by almost 2x to 3x.
