Across Thailand’s transmission line network, Tata Projects consortium is the only one to have used safety fall protection system during project’s erection and stringing activities, the statement said. The equipments related to safety fall protection system were imported from India, it said. The project has provided opportunities to small Thai sub-contractors (115 & 230 kV) to work for 500kV under the guidance of Tata Projects’ expert team. This will ultimately help to increase resources, especially manpower skills in Thailand for execution of 500kV projects in future, the company said.
