Transmission Life Cycle Services

Meeting the technical and qualitative project parameters

Meeting the technical and qualitative project parameters

Like most capital projects, transmission line projects also face key challenges during planning, procurement, construction and commissioning phases. The developers and investors often face some of the usual challenges such as statutory management, contractor interfaces, financing and contract disputes apart from project over run and quality issues. The financial impacts of such incidences are huge. Not only do they result in CapEx over runs but also in the loss of revenue due to delay in commercial operation. Apart from this, right of way has also become a perennial problem across stats leading to inordinate delays in project implementation. Land clearance, forest clearance, lack of modern construction technologies and project management tools are also some of the major challenges in the current era.

What is transmission life cycle service?

Transmission life cycle service includes complete support and advisory right from feasibility study to project planning, implementation and commercial operation. Entire life cycle has different areas of services including feasibility, statutory, engineering, procurement, construction, erection, testing, commissioning and commercial operation.
