The Adani Group’s Adani Transmission Limited (ATL) has completed the construction of one of India’s longest intra-state transmission lines, measuring 897 Circuit Km. This feat was achieved in Uttar Pradesh by Ghatampur Transmission Limited (GTL) a subsidiary of ATL. At Agra, Greater Noida, and Hapur, the transmission line has four 765KV and 400KV bay expansions. This project was built on a Build, Own, Operate, and Maintain (BOOM) basis in the PPP style. Long-Term Transmission Customers (LTTC) will benefit from transmission services with a 35-year runway.
GTL secured the loan facility for the project from a consortium of lenders, Power Finance Corporation of India (PFC) and REC Limited. The project will evacuate power from the 3×660 MW Ghatampur TPS, owned by Neyveli Uttar Pradesh Power Limited, a joint venture between Neyveli Lignite Corporation and Uttar Pradesh Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam. It is also expected to upgrade the state’s transmission network. The project consists of a 411 km 765KV S/C Ghatampur-Hapur transmission line, which is one of the country’s longest HVAC transmission lines. It will link the Ghatampur TPS in Central UP to the Hapur Substation in Western UP.
The UP & Neyveli Lignite Corporation’s Ghatampur thermal production power plant is planned to generate 14,000 million units (MU) of electricity per year, once operational, fulfilling UP’s future power needs.
