The National Transmission and Desptach Company Limited (NTDC) has completed rehabilitation work of six collapsed towers of high power 500 kV Shikarpur – Dadu (Ckt-II) transmission line near Larkana in a record time.
The transmission line has been energized successfully and started power supply from South to North, said a press release.
The pylons were damaged due to heavy windstorm and torrential rains in the area on July 6, 2022. However, power supply was provided to the affected areas through alternative source to avoid load shedding during Eid holidays.
While dilating upon the details, the NTDC spokesman said that, in line with the directions of Managing Director Engr. Dr. Rana Abdul Jabbar Khan, NTDC team was immediately mobilized to begin rehab work.
The team along with contractors carried out rehabilitation work of effected towers day and night and even during Eid-ul-Azha holidays and completed it in record period of 11 days despite bad weather conditions.
Local police and NTDC security staff also remained alert on the site. NTDC management appreciated the efforts of Asset Management South (Hyderabad) and his team for early completion of rehabilitation work.—APP
