Sterlite Grid Successfully Type Tests Towers for 765 kV Double and Single Circuit Transmission Line Projects

PUNE, India, September 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Tower Designs Indigenously Developed by Sterlite Grid

Sterlite Grid Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sterlite Technologies Limited (STL), today announced that it has successfully completed full-scale type testing for its 765 kV double circuit Dharamjaygarh-Jabalpur transmission line (JTCL) project for all the four types of towers.

Sterlite Grid had earlier completed tower testing for its 765 kV single circuit towers for it Bhopal Dhule (BDTCL) Project. All tested tower designs have been indigenously developed by Sterlite Grid which holds copyrights for the said designs.

"We perform full-scale prototype testing on a wide variety of structures and have the unique distinction of being one of the few companies in the world to have a portfolio of tested tower designs at 765 kV class for both single as well as double circuit configurations. Our in-house engineering, procurement and project management capabilities give us an unmatched ability to get a transmission tower project done on time and on budget," says Ajay Bhardwaj, COO and Business Head, Sterlite Grid Limited.

Sterlite currently has a portfolio of three projects with a total value of about Rs. 40 Billion (~US$ 0.9 Billion). These transmission systems would evacuate and transmit power through a network of about 2200 km of transmission lines and 2 substations; in the Indian states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, West Bengal, Bihar and Assam.

To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in ...

Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud.

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises.
