Infrastructure company TATA Projects Limited today announced it has forayed into Bangladesh’s power transmission and distribution sector by securing a 400kV double-circuit transmission line project valued at approximately INR 900 crore (US$ 120 million) from Power Grid Company of Bangladesh Limited (PGCB).
The company shall build the 120km transmission line from Barapukuria to Bogura on a turnkey basis. The project is scheduled to complete in 30 months, with funding support from EXIM Bank India under the Indian Line of Credit.
Desh Raj Pathak, vice president – projects (transmission & distribution), Tata Projects Ltd, said, “this transmission line project in Bangladesh reaffirms our expertise and experience in executing world-class transmission and distribution projects. As reliable and world-class power transmission infrastructure is necessary for a nation’s development, we are keen to play a role in Bangladesh’s progress.”
The transmission line shall result in an expansion of high-voltage transmission infrastructure in the northern parts of Bangladesh. It will also facilitate 1,600 MW power transmission from a power plant based in Jharkhand to Bangladesh.
This project is unique as the entire transmission line will be constructed on a pile foundation and strung 100% with a high-tension low sag conductor.
