Transrail Lighting Limited, an integrated power transmission and distribution company based in India, has won a $17.23-million order from Jordan's National Electric Power Company (Nepco) to execute conductor replacement for various 132 kV transmission lines in and around its capital Amman on turnkey basis.
A leading EPC company headquartered in Mumbai, Transrail Lighting Limited boasts over three decades of experience in providing comprehensive solutions on the turnkey basis globally.
This is the firm's maiden order from the Middle East region. It entails reconductoring of old transmission line with the new high-end ACCC (Aluminium Conductor Composite Core) Conductor.
ACCC conductors are light weight and have higher current carrying capacity. The project involves replacement of two Lots of 132 kV lines with Lot 1 consisting of 4 lines aggregating 44 km and Lot 2 with 5 lines aggregating 57 km.
Commenting on the win, Managing Director DC Bagde said: "This contract marks Transrail's full-fledged entry in The Middle East, where we were earlier supplying our products. This is an important region for us. We are very proud to win this mandate as it is not only new geography for us but also it involves complex reconductoring."
Bagde pointed out that the advance composite core conductors were lighter and hence the current carrying capacity got increased on same old towers.
"Thus it is going to result in cost savings for the client. These are very old electricity lines passing through a highly populated area in and around the capital city, Amman. Nepco has awarded the contract to Transrail by evaluating our long-standing experience in power transmission. We are committed to complete this job with utmost care for safety and ensuring minimum inconvenience to the residents of Amman," he stated.
Transrail is a major player in the power transmission and distribution, lighting infrastructure, substations and railways sector which caters to customers across India, Africa, Americas and Asia. The company has in-house manufacturing facilities for towers, conductors and poles.-TradeArabia News Service
