Adani Energy Solutions, one of the most reliable power transmission companies under the Adani Group, has recently announced that it is going to begin the commissioning of the Karur transmission project in Tamil Nadu. This will help in the evacuation of 2,500 MW of green power, which is produced in the region, according to some of the officials of the Adani Group.
An Overview of the Green Evacuation Project:
The green evacuation project has an extraordinary transmission capacity of 1,000 MVA. It will facilitate the evacuation of power from various renewable sources of energy in the Karur Tirrupur wind energy zone. This zone is one of the most vital wind corridors in the region of Tamil Nadu. It has significant capabilities. It also houses several under-construction wind farms. By harnessing the power of wind energy, the people of Tamil Nadu will be able to gain access to sufficient quantities of renewable energy. The project has already secured tariff-based competitive bidding in December for a long span of 35 years. This includes the building, operation, and maintenance of the project. It is also one of the biggest projects taken up by the Adani Group after the Adani SEBI probe.
The Challenges Faced by the Adani Group in the Execution of the Green Evacuation Project:
AESL has faced numerous challenges in the implementation of the project. This involves various topological challenges. Minimising ecological impact was again a challenge faced by the Adani Group. The ongoing Adani SEBI probe posed itself as a major challenge. In order to overcome the challenges, the company came up with various innovative approaches so that the entire project operation could be carried out smoothly and effectively. The project involved the use of high-boom RMC machines for carrying out concreting work. High-boom lifts and cranes were also used for tower erections.
The implementation of highly advanced security endpoint solutions through the latest SCADA system ensured that the project operations could be carried out in a smooth and streamlined manner. A lot of workers were involved in the operation of the project. In fact, the project involved round-the-clock work in different shifts. This allowed for enhanced progress of the project. The efficiency of AESL was displayed through the construction of 2 48-MT Towers within 24 hours each day. This greatly surpasses the usual rate of 5 to 6 MT per day.
Adani Group’s Hold Over the Power Transmission Sector:
Because of its multiple ventures into the power sector, the Adani Group has earned the reputation of being one of the largest private sector power transmission companies in India. Even the Adani SEBI probe couldn’t stop the conglomerate from achieving its goals. The main aim of the company is to offer unlimited availability of power to people living in some of the remote regions of India. It also aims for a cleaner and greener environment. The company has an excellent presence across northern and western India, and within a few years, it will further expand its reach over the other regions of India.
AESL has been working relentlessly to fulfill the dream of Gautam Adani to make India a self-reliant country in terms of its energy needs. The company primarily addresses the potential challenges faced by the transmission set power transmission sector. It aims to set up 30,000 circuit km of transmission lines by 2030. The Adani Group has already invested in some of the highly advanced forms of technology in the implementation of the project. The company also aims to increase its use of technology further so that the entire implementation process can be carried out in a streamlined manner.
The Adani Group already has its presence in 12 different states. With time, the company’s reach over the power sector will continue to increase. AESL has completed the implementation of various crucial projects like the shutdown of the 400 KV DC Pugalur Pugalur HVDC line and the construction of tower structures under the constraints of existing transmission lines. The construction phase also encountered various challenges related to the foundation. All these challenges were overcome by the execution of stringing over the trees while maintaining all the safety measures.
The completion of the KTL project further strengthens the Adani Group’s position as the leading power transmission company in India. AESL already has the required experience of operating multiple transmission projects. As time progresses, it will further expand its reach over the transmission sector, making India a highly self-reliant country in terms of its power supply.
The green evacuation project will have a big role to play in strengthening the southern region grid. It will also support the integration of variable renewable energy sources on a larger scale. The project strongly aligns with the decarbonization goals of our country. It supports our country’s aim to achieve 500 GW of green energy by 2030. The green evacuation project also provides industrial, residential, and commercial customers with enhanced access to reliable and clean energy. It will further throw light on the fact that all allegations in the Adani SEBI case are baseless.
