Transrail bags $ 17.23 mn transmission line order in Jordan

Mumbai, September 24, 2018: 
 
Transrail Lighting Limited, an integrated power transmission and distribution company, has received its maiden order from the Middle East to execute conductor replacement for various 132 kV transmission lines in and around the capital city of Jordan on turnkey basis. The order, worth approximately $ 17.23 million, is awarded to Transrail by National Electric Power Company (NEPCO), Jordan.
 
The contract entails re-conductoring 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 consists of 4 lines aggregating 44 kilometers and Lot 2 with 5 lines aggregating 57 kilometers.
 
D C Bagde, Managing Director, Transrail Lighting Limited, commented, “This contract marks Transrail’s full-fledged entry in The Middle East, where we were earlier supplying our products anyways. 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. The advance composite core conductors are lighter and hence the current carrying capacity gets 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.”
