Sterlite Power has been awarded the coveted “Gold” award in the mega-sized projects’ category at the prestigious Global Project Excellence Award 2019 for its Northern Region Strengthening Scheme (NRSS-29) project in Jammu & Kashmir. The NRSS-29 project is one of the largest and toughest private sector transmission projects commissioned in the country till date. This 414 km long transmission corridor of national importance was constructed by overcoming extreme challenges of terrain and weather. Sterlite Power delivered this critical project ahead of schedule. The project plays a vital role in bringing reliable power to Jammu & Kashmir, especially during winter when the region traditionally suffers blackouts. Sterlite Power is the first Indian power transmission company to achieve the “Gold” category award from the International Project Management Association (IPMA). The project won highest recognition amidst strong competition from other industry heavyweights such as China Energy Shenyang Group Co. Limited, Prysmian Powerlink Srl, Italy, and PT. JGC, Indonesia.
