Salasar Techno Engineering has recently been awarded a new project from the Power Grid Corporation of India. The newly bagged project worth Rs. 238.65 crore includes the construction of a 201-km Transmission line Network and four new power substations in the North-Eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh.
The transmission line network will be of 132KV type and the substations will be of the Extra High Voltage capacity. As per the project, Salasar will also be responsible for supply, construction, erection, testing and commissioning of transmission towers and substations.
Shashank Agarwal, MD, Salasar said, “We are proud to receive this project from PGCIL that aligns with our continued effort towards the growth of India’s dynamic infrastructure space. We are also thankful to PGCIL for putting their trust in our experience and offerings, thereby awarding us with the contract. We look forward to seamless completion of the project and working on similar opportunities in the future.”
PGCIL floated the tender for the project a few months ago and Salasar participated with offerings at competitive prices. The execution of the project will start by next month and is estimated to be completed by 24 months.
Notably, Salasar has successfully executed similar projects for UPPCL, HVPNL (Haryana), PTCUL (UK), HPPTCL (HP ) and other government entities in the past few years. Additionally, the company is also executing a similar project in the Assam region to support the nation’s vision on developing North-Eastern states.
PGCIL is India’s largest Electric Power Transmission Utility (Public) and is engaged mainly in the transmission of bulk power across different states of India.
