ACCC Conductor Project India – Re-conductoring of the 61 circuit kilometer 132kV S/C Hatia – Karamdara Transmission Line was completed earlier this month, an impressive five months ahead of schedule. JUSNL (Jharkhand Urja Sancharan Nigam Limited) selected ACCC Casablanca size conductor to increase power flow to the capital city of Jharkhand, Ranchi.
In addition to numerous ROW challenges, the project also was completed amidst a serious Naxal insurgency threat. The ACCC conductor selected for the project was provided by Sterlite, who also served as the installation contractor. TAG Corporation of India supplied nearly 1,700 hardware components for this project that included dead-ends, splices, suspension clamps, vibration dampers and other accessories.
Jharkhand (“Land of the Forest”) is a state in eastern India, known for its waterfalls, the elegant Jain temples of Parasnath Hill and the elephants and tigers of Betla National Park. Jharkhand also comprises 40% of India’s mineral resources.
Well over 50 ACCC projects have already been completed in India thus far.
