TATA Projects Limited has completed a 110-km stretch of the 200-km Surathani–Phuket transmission line project in Thailand.

This 500kV transmission line is an achievement since it passes through thick jungles and mountainous terrain.

This project will bring additional electricity to Phuket thereby improving the lives of citizens. Of the Tata Projects-led consortium’s 110-km stretch, about 80-km was executed by Tata Projects and the remaining by its partner. The company utilised drone technology for stringing of transmission lines thereby reducing timeframe and avoiding manual work.

Vivek Gautam, COO, Tata Projects Ltd, in a statement said, “We are proud to complete this important transmission line project which is a true testimony of our top-notch expertise and vast experience. With successful completion of our second transmission line project in Thailand, we have once again proved our execution capabilities not only in India but also around the world. Going forward, we shall continue to deliver projects on-time, using world-class project management techniques and uncompromising standards of safety.”

All tower foundations were completed using ready mixed concrete which is a symbol of 100 per cent concrete quality. Additionally, Tata Projects also prepared approach roads for ready mixed concrete trucks.

A unique aspect of this project is that it is the first 500 KV Transmission line passing from Phang-nga province in Southern Thailand, bordering the Andaman Sea on the West Coast of the Malay Peninsula.

Prior to this, Tata Projects-led consortium had successfully executed an 80-km stretch of 500kV Roi Et 2 – Chaiyaphum 2 Transmission Line project in August 2019. It was the company’s first successfully executed transmission line project in Thailand.
