About the Project
Hadoti Power Transmission Ltd was incorporated on May 10, 2013.HTSL was awarded to ATL (Adani Transmission Ltd.) by Rajasthan Rajya Vidyut Prasaran Nigam Ltd. on Mar 31, 2017 for 25 year period on BOOM basis. HPTSL entered into a Transmission Service Agreement with Long Term Transmission Customer on Aug 11, 2017.
The transmission system established under HPTSL meets the power demand in the Rajasthan state. HPTSL operates five EHV overhead transmission lines with total circuit length of approximately 115 Ckms and five nos. Grid substation of 310 MVA capacity in the state of Rajasthan. The project construction started in November 2017 and completed in Feb 2019 and project was fully commissioned in Feb 2019.
Numerous challenges were encountered and dealt with while completing the project. Three key challenges encountered and successfully dealt with were –
- Severe Right of Way issue :
There was severe resistance faced during construction of project in the region of Kota, Peeplu. This was overcome with close coordination with stakeholders and proactive support from administration.
- Hard Rock Soil Starta and Hilly substation Location :
Hard Rock soil strata was encountered during the construction of line in Kota area. This was overcome using innovative techniques and construction methodology. The substation location at Chitri and Bambora were at hilly location.
- Scattered Locations :
Since, all the elements were scattered in Rajasthan state, arranging for logistic was a challenging task. Close coordination with all suppliers and using centralized storage and semi storage at Substation helped ensure effective supply chain management.
