Mumbai : On Sunday Adani Transmission Ltd (ATL) declared that it will be able to execute a transmission line and sub-station project at suburban Vikhroli which will magnify the power supply by 1,000 MW to its financial capital, by the end of the next year, as per the deadline for it.
Last Monday, in a review meeting taken following power outage, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray asked all stakeholders to speed up the project by adhering to its timelines.
Trains have been stuck on the tracks, businesses affected and the work from home employees could not work as Mumbai thrust into darkness last Monday and that lasts up to 14 hours in some of the areas.
“Adani is committed to completing the Kharghar-Vikhroli transmission line project within the timeline set by Thackeray,” a spokesperson for Adani Group said in a statement.
In the statement, ATL said there will be growth in power load in the megapolis and the mismatch between generation and load growth, it is now committed to executing two critical transmission projects that would help channelize additional power to Mumbai.
These capacity enhancement projects will create an additional transmission capacity of 1,000 MW each, thereby easing the existing transmission corridors.
ATL on Sunday said it has already placed orders for all critical equipment and service contracts, which are vital for project completion, including towers and insulators. It has also completed 80 per cent of engineering and is working with authorities to get possession of land parcels at Kharghar and Vikhroli.
