Sterlite Power kicks off tree translocation in Indian power transmission sector

Sterlite Power has announced that it has launched an initiative to promote greener eco-system while constructing power transmission projects. The company launched a tree translocation project by which bigger and mature living trees will be translocated within 500 mts.  The project will effectively reduce approximately 40% of felling of trees. The pilot of the initiative is being initiated in Indore as part of its Khargone Transmission project (KTL). The 189 km KTL project will connect Indore to 1320MW of thermal power from Khandwa. This project will benefit domestic, commercial, agricultural and industrial segments.

Ved Mani Tiwari, CEO Global Infra Business, Sterlite Power said, “Sterlite Power has worked to deliver a social impact by implementing its projects in the most environment friendly manner. The tree translocation project is our way of contributing to promote green habitat. I am sure this initiative will become a norm for the power transmission industry and in that sense this is a pioneering effort. We thank the local administration and the stakeholders who have partnered in us this initiative.”
