Adani Transmission receives governmental nod for Kharghar─Vikhroli project

Adani Transmission Limited (ATL), has received governmental permission for the construction of the 400 kV Vikhroli receiving station and associated incoming transmission lines.

In December 2019, ATL received the letter of intent (LoI) from the Maharashtra State Electricity Transmission Company (MSETCL) for the development of the project. In June 2020, ATL signed a share purchase agreement and completed the acquisition of the special purpose vehicle (SPV)—Kharghar Vikhroli Transmission Private Limited—created for the execution of the project. The Kharghar─Vikhroli project entails the laying of approximately 34 km of 400 kV and 220 kV power lines, along with the construction of a 400 kV gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) substation at Vikhroli, Mumbai – the capital city of Maharashtra. This would mark the first ever 400 kV substation facility in the city. The project is scheduled for completion in 2023.
