Once widely used only in US and European countries, monopoles are now becoming popular in India too. This is because monopoles have distinct advantages over the lattice towers w.r.t space, speed of erection, short delivery time and more. The benefit of smaller base installation space, even while rising higher than 40 to 50 m, makes monopoles an eco-friendly alternative as well. Bajaj was the first to design, manufacture and erect steel monopoles in India, and now it continues to bring in an expertise of over 10 years to the table.
The Bajaj EPC Power Transmission segment was the first and the only one in India to design, type test, manufacture and install monopoles of 400 kV double-circuit line with a height of 42 m for Power Grid Corporation of India Limited for their project line from Dadri to Ballabhgarh. Apart from PGCIL, another notable project where BEL displayed its expertise is UPPTCL-132 kV 90-degree deviation monopole line at Agra. The steel monopole structures are designed as per ASCE/ASTM manual 72. Right now, Bajaj is executing 400 kV monopole project for UPPTCL at Noida, which is India's largest ever.
Certified by TUV NORD for ISO 9001: 2008, ISO 14001:2004 and BS OHSAS 18001: 2007, the BEL plant meets all the stringent quality standards. Moreover, all the 400 kV, 220 kV and 132 kV monopoles are type tested at a third party independent reputed lab for additional quality checks. Bajaj Electricals is equipped with a very strong in-house design and engineering team that offers complete solution from concept to commissioning.
