Global power transmission player Sterlite Power has won two awards at the Global Project Excellence Awards 2020 from International Project Management Association (IPMA) for second year in a row.

The company has won the ‘Gold’ award in the small and medium-sized project category for “1.1 km Ganga river crossing for Purnia-Bihar Shariff transmission line project with ACCC technology”, and ‘Bronze Award’ in large-sized project category for “Gurgaon Palwal Transmission project sporting India’s first vertical GIS substation”.

The awards were presented recently at the gala award ceremony held virtually this year. The company was 2019 ‘Gold’ winner in Mega-sized project category for its NRSS-XXIX project in Jammu & Kashmir.

Part of the ENICL mega transmission project, the 400 kV Purnia-Bihar Shariff DC transmission line was restored by constructing a river crossing with a long span of 1.1 km over Ganges, without any support structures in the middle of the river with the specially designed ACCC ULS Ganga conductor. This one-of-a-kind construction is a step towards making transmission lines climate change proof.  

The company said that it’s Gurgaon Palwal Transmission Project in Haryana implemented one-of-its-kind innovation with India’s first vertical GIS substations being built at Prithla, Kadarpur and Sohna. The project plays a vital role in evacuating about 2,000 MW of reliable power to more than 3 million households in the state.

Both the projects won the awards against strong competition from companies from Russia and Australia. IPMA is the world’s oldest project management association based out of Netherlands. The IPMA award is given to projects across the globe that demonstrates project management excellence.
