Gautam Adani, the Gujarat-based tycoon, has been on an acquisition spree after the stocks of the listed companies of the ports-to-power conglomerate boosted his fortunes.

Adani Transmission Ltd. in June had signed definitive agreements with Essar Power Ltd. for acquiring 673 circuit kilometres of operational inter-state transmission project for ₹1,913 crore. The target asset is an operational 400 kV inter-state transmission line linking Mahan in Madhya Pradesh to Sipat pooling substation in Chhattisgarh with line length of 673 ckt kms.

Adani also acquired a 50% stake in Bengaluru-based General Aeronautics Pvt. Ltd in June. Before that, the group forayed into healthcare by incorporating Adani Health Ventures (AHVL).

Last week, Adani Group announced it will invest ₹57,575 crore to set up an alumina refinery and an iron ore project in mineral-rich Odisha. The company says these projects will generate 9,300 direct jobs and open up tens of thousands of indirect employment opportunities in Odisha.

Besides, the Adani group has mega plans to tap into the green energy industry. In his shareholder address during the annual meeting last month, Adani said the group is investing around $70 billion in facilitating India’s green transition.
