Press Release   •   Sep 16, 2010 12:46 IST

Transmission Tower

A power transmission tower is a tall steel structure used to support overhead electricity conductors for power transmission. The function of a power transmission tower is to isolate the high-voltage conductors that it supports and separate them from the surroundings and each other. ( )

Players in the transmission line tower industry can be categorised based on their level of integration and the range of services they provide from offering tower components to installation services and integrated turnkey services. They can be categorised as:

EPC contractors: These companies primarily offer turnkey services. Their offerings include providing towers, erecting and testing services, and commissioning of the towers. Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd (PGCIL) and the state electricity boards (SEBs) are the main consumers. Further, this sector is highly organised and dominated by few players due to the high prequalification standards set by the customers. The main players in this segment are Kalpataru Power Transmission Ltd, Jyoti Structures Ltd and KEC International Ltd (KEC).

Structure and equipment suppliers: These companies primarily offer the steel structures and related equipment for the towers. Transmission tower EPC contractors often subcontract the tower manufacturing work to these companies. There are several small players operating in this segment.
