Adani Energy Solutions Completes Monumental 1,756 km Power Transmission Project
Adani Energy Solutions Limited (AESL) has achieved a remarkable milestone with the successful commissioning of the Warora Kurnool Transmission (WKTL) project, a colossal 1,756 circuit-kilometer power transmission network spanning Maharashtra, Telangana, and Andhra Pradesh.

This monumental endeavor significantly bolsters the national grid's capacity, enabling the seamless transfer of 4,500 MW of power between India's Western and Southern regions, while also reinforcing the Southern region's grid for the efficient integration of renewable energy sources.
The inception of Warora Kurnool Transmission Limited (WKTL) in April 2015 aimed to establish an additional inter-regional alternating current link to import power into the Southern region.
The project, awarded through a Tariff-based competitive bid (TBCB) to Essel InfraProjects Ltd. in early 2016 and later acquired by AESL in March 2021 after a debt restructuring process, is an engineering marvel.
It involved the construction of a 765/400 kV substation in Warangal and stands as the largest 765 kV D/C (Hexa conductor) TBCB project ever awarded under a single scheme.
This project overcame numerous challenges, including the erection of two 102-meter towers mid-stream on the Krishna River, a first-ever feat, and crossing major power lines, railway-electrified tracks, and national highways.
Notably, the project completed 1,524 circuit kilometers of stringing within 11 months, further illustrating its scale and complexity.
Despite global disruptions like the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war affecting the supply chain, the WKTL project now serves as a testament to India's infrastructure development and grid enhancement, reaffirming AESL's commitment to expanding India's power transmission capabilities.
