Patel Engineering reached a milestone with India’s Sela Pass Tunnel project

Patel Engineering Ltd. is honoured to be associated with the Sela Pass Tunnel Project, an incomparable feat of infrastructure in India, which was officially inaugurated by Shri Narendra Modi.

With the successful opening of the Sela Tunnel Project in Arunachal Pradesh, which was presided over by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, Patel Engineering Limited, a well-known provider of integrated infrastructure and construction services in India, is happy to announce its 75th year of operation. With improved all-weather connections and faster troop mobility throughout the region, this historic event represents a major advancement in India’s strategic infrastructure development.

With a valuation of ₹ 650 crore, the Sela Tunnel is proof of India’s steadfast dedication to enhancing border security and promoting regional economic development. By using cutting-edge technical methods to get over geographical and environmental obstacles, Patel built the tunnel as part of the Border Roads Organisations’ (BRO) Project VARTAK. A road measuring around 8.7 kilometres and two main tunnels, measuring 1003.34 metres and 1594.38 metres, respectively, with an escape tunnel measuring 1584.38 metres, are part of the project.

The selection of Patel Engineering for this project was predicated upon its vast knowledge and exceptional performance history in overseeing complex and lengthy projects. Patel Engineering is renowned for being the go-to partner for important projects with worldwide ramifications, and the Sela Tunnel Project is a prime example of the company’s operational expertise and resiliency.

The accomplishment of the project was made feasible by the committed work of a group of more than 800 workers and more than 50 highly qualified engineers. The crew persevered in the face of extreme weather, with lows of -15 degrees Celsius during the dead of winter. This demonstrated Patel’s unflinching dedication to governmental goals. The construction of these essential transit arteries, including the Sela Tunnel—the world’s longest bi-lane road tunnel at an elevation of approximately 13,500 feet—demonstrates Patel’s dedication to the goals of the government.

This forward-thinking infrastructure development not only makes it easier for the Indian military to deploy troops and heavy weaponry to the Line of Actual Control (LAC) with China, but it will also benefit the people of Arunachal Pradesh, who were previously cut off from the rest of India during the winter. This demonstrates Patel’s commitment to supporting the government’s focus on enhancing security and advancing economic development. India’s strategic and economic interests in the northeastern region are greatly enhanced by the Sela Pass Tunnel, especially when it comes to border infrastructure strengthening and initiatives to develop isolated areas for development and security reasons.

Rupen Patel, Chairman & Managing Director of Patel Engineering Limited, says,” We are truly honoured to be entrusted with this prestigious project, and we extend our sincere gratitude to the Prime Minister, Shri. Narendra Modi for this opportunity and trust. The Sela Pass project holds paramount importance for India’s growth, and we consider ourselves fortunate to be associated with such a pivotal initiative that aligns seamlessly with our commitment to contributing to India’s growth story. Patel Engineering is dedicated to focusing on hydropower, irrigation and tunnelling projects, leveraging our strong order book, and bringing our unparalleled expertise in infrastructure to the forefront. “

The Sela Pass Tunnel strategically exemplifies state-of-the-art technologies intended to overcome geological, topographical, and environmental obstacles. India’s determination to close the infrastructural gap and strengthen its strategic position in the area is demonstrated by this audacious project. The tunnel project is an example of how far India has come in the last few years, overcoming obstacles to match China’s massive infrastructure projects.

In addition, Patel Engineering is now working on the 2000 MW Subansiri HEP project, one of the biggest hydropower projects in India. It was also recently awarded the Dibang Multipurpose Project, which has an installed capacity of 2880 MW.
