The first order valued at ` 258 crore has been received from Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd (PGCIL). The order is for the supply and construction of 400 kV Double Circuit transmission line from Bhachau (Kutch District) to Essar thermal power station in the state of Gujarat. The total length of the line is 260 Kms and the contractual completion time is approximately 26 months.

The second order valued at ` 113 crore has been received from Haldia Energy Limited, subsidiary of CESC Ltd. The order is for supply and construction of 400 kV Double Circuit river crossing transmission line between Haldia Thermal Power Plant – Subhash Gram, crossing the Ganges River at Kolkata (West Bengal). The contractual completion time for the project is approximately 18 months.

Commenting on these orders Mr. Ramesh Chandak, MD & CEO, KEC International Ltd said ‘’The last few months have been very good for KEC in terms of securing new orders. We have continuously secured orders from across the globe and across our various businesses. The Haldia Energy Ltd. (CESC) order is the second successive order from the domestic private sector customer in the last two weeks. Further, this order includes manufacture and erection of one of India’s largest and highest tower with stringing across a river spanning 3 Kms. The tower height is 246 meters (excluding the height of the mid-steam pile foundation). This reinforces KEC’s ability to execute complex transmission line projects in difficult terrains.”
