Adani Energy Solutions commissions 765 KV Warora-Kurnool Transmission line

Adani Energy Solutions announced on Thursday through an exchange filing that the Warora Kurnool Transmission (WKTL), spanning 1,756 circuit kilometers across Maharashtra, Telangana, and Andhra Pradesh, was fully commissioned by the Company.

 

The project will strengthen the national grid to ensure seamless power flow of 4500 MW between Western region and Southern region, the company said.

 

Further, the project will strengthen southern region grid and support large-scale integration of generation from renewable energy sources, it added.

 

Warora Kurnool Transmission Limited (WKTL) was incorporated in April, 2015 to establish an additional inter-regional alternate current link for import into southern region, i.e., Warora-Warangal and Chilakaluripeta-Hyderabad-Kurnool, along with the creation of a 765/400 kV sub-station in Warangal. 

 

WKTL is the largest 765 kV D/C (Hexa conductor) TBCB (tariff-based competitive bidding) project ever awarded under a single scheme. It involved the laying of an 1756 ckm transmission line traversing across Maharashtra, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh and the construction of 765 KV sub-station in Warangal on a build, own, operate and maintain basis. 

 

This was awarded on a Tariff-based competitive bid (TBCB) to Essel InfraProjects Ltd in early 2016 and subsequently acquired by AESL in March, 2021 following the stressed debt restructuring undertaken by lenders.

 

On Thursday at around 12:31 PM, Adani Energy Solutions was trading lower by 1% at Rs 756.70 per share on the BSE.
