National Geographic documentary to showcase extreme engineering feat

National Geographic is all set to bring forth a significant and inspiring story of an extreme engineering feat, a coming together of human resilience and triumph of technology to make the unimaginable—possible. The exclusive documentary titledExtreme Tech: Corridor to Kashmir will take viewers to some of the Himalayan ranges and showcase the innovation in technology to overcome monumental challenges in order to set up an electric transmission network across the Pir Panjal range.

This is astory of invincible human grit coupled with a technological marvel meant to strengthen the energy reliability of the Kashmir valley. This one-hour story speaks about the efforts of one of India's largest energy delivery solution provider, Sterlite Power, braving extreme weather and the challenges of tough terrains to set up a power transmission network.

For the first time, engineers used heli-cranes to transport material for the transmission tower. One can see the air crane lifting material and tower elements between treacherous mountains in the valley’s unpredictable weather.

Apart from showcasing technological achievements, this documentary will highlight the most difficult and risky jobs performed by cable stringing at high towers; coordinating with the heli-cranes in the snow-covered mountain range is just one of the challenges.

National Geographic’s Extreme Tech: Corridor to Kashmir aims to bring forth astonishing acts of spirit and technological advancement and celebrate the strides that India is making in the world of innovation.

This exclusive one-hour documentary will premiere on 4thFebruary at 7.30 pm on National Geographic.
