MEIL bags Limca Book record for faster completion of power project

New Delhi: Infrastructure firm Megha Engineering and Infrastructures (MEIL) has secured a place in ‘ Limca Book of National Records ’ by completing a complex power substation project in incompatible weather conditions in nearly half the stipulated timeframe. The 400/220KV power substation for Power Grid Corporation was built in a record time of seven months, which is five months ahead of the scheduled deadline while fulfilling all the quality parameters, said MEIL in a statement. The project at NP Kunta in Ananthapur district of Andhra Pradesh normally takes 15-18 months for execution but “MEIL could complete it within a span of 7 months as per Power Grid Corporation requirements,” said MEIL director B Srinivas Reddy. “To achieve this record breaking performance, we mobilised additional resources, machinery. At the same time our engineers and field staff worked for three shifts (24 hours).”
