Adani Energy Solutions Limited (AESL) has fully commissioned the Warora Kurnool Transmission (WKTL) project, the largest inter-regional 765 kV transmission line in India. The 1,756 ckm transmission line traverses Maharashtra, Telangana, and Andhra Pradesh, and will strengthen the national grid to ensure seamless power flow of 4500 MW between the Western and Southern regions.
The WKTL project is a significant engineering and execution marvel, with several superlative accomplishments. For the first time ever, two mid-stream towers of 102 m height each with pile foundations were set up on the Krishna River. The project also braved two black swan global events: COVID-19 and the Russia-Ukraine war, which caused disruptions in the entire commodity supply chain and led to repeated demobilization and mobilization challenges.
Despite these challenges, the WKTL project was completed on time and within budget. This is a testament to the expertise and commitment of AESL and its partners. The commissioning of the WKTL project is a major milestone in the development of India's power transmission infrastructure and will play a vital role in supporting the country's growing energy needs.
Benefits of the WKTL project:
Strengthens the national grid to ensure seamless power flow between the Western and Southern regions
Supports large-scale integration of generation from renewable energy sources
Improves the reliability and efficiency of the power transmission system
Reduces transmission losses
Boosts economic growth and development in the regions served by the project
