SMEC has operated in India since 1975. SMEC's first project in India was the Kalpasar Project for which SMEC undertook feasibility studies. The objective of the project was to dam the Gulf of Khambat between Ghogha (Bhavnagar) and Hansot (Bharuch), turning the area into a fresh water lake using the inflow of seven rivers into the Gulf.
SMEC opened a permanent head office in Delhi (Gurgaon) in 1991. In 1994 SMEC India Pty Ltd was established as a fully owned subsidiary company. SMEC now has six permanent offices in India: Assam, Bangalore, Chennai, Gurgaon, Hyderabad and Uttar Pradesh.
SMEC has extensive experience in the Transport, Water, Hydropower and Energy, Social Development and Government and Advisory Services sectors in India. SMEC has worked on numerous projects including road upgrade and rehabilitation projects, water resource management projects, preparation of feasibility studies for proposed hydroelectrical plants and detailed design and project management of the Rohtang Highway Tunnel.
SMEC recently signed a contract with the Assam State Electricity Board to provide project implementation services for their transmission and distribution network system enhancement. This project is part of the Assam Power Sector Enhancement Investment Program and is funded by the Asian Development Bank. The project will strengthen power transmission capacity and improve access to electricity.
