Reconductoring project in the Indian State of Odisha for the state utility OPTCL (Odisha Power Transmission Corporation LTD).
First significant HVCRC® project in India.
Customer: OPTCL (Odisha Power Transmission Corporation LTD)
Location: Odisha, India
Voltage: 138 kV
New Conductor: HVCRC/TW Casablanca
Stranding partner: Gupta Power Infrastructure Limited
The project re-conductors a key segment in the transmission grid in the State of Odisha and the increased ampacity of HVCRC® Conductor provided OPTCL with a solution for a critical congestion problem in the Odisha Grid.
In utilizing the HVCRC® Smart Conductor, OPTCL was able to upgrade the existing lines without replacing any of the key infrastructures.
HVCRC® conductors contribute to the modernization of Indian Transmission lines providing the best solution to the acute power crisis for Indian Power Utilities.
The High Ampacity Low Sag HVCRC® conductor replaces conventional conductors and can be strung on the existing towers thereby completely resolving the difficult Right of Way problem Indian Utilities face.
HVCRC® Smart Conductors offer an unmatched efficiency over the conventional ACSR & AAAC conductors with many advantages for construction of India’s Smart Grid, supporting the concept of a modern and more efficient transmission grid.
