The third unit (110 MW) of Kishanganga Hydroelectric Project (3 x 110MW) of NHPC at Bandipora, Jammu and Kashmir has been successfully synchronised with the grid and has also achieved its rated full load successfully. This marks the commissioning of all three units of Kishanganga Project, as the first and second units have already been commissioned on March 13 and 21, 2018 respectively.
The Kishanganga Project envisages diversion of water of Kishanganga River to underground Power House through 23.25 KM long Head Race Tunnel to generate 1,713 million units per annum. The project is covered under the Indus Waters Treaty signed between India and Pakistan. Apart from the many states which would be the project’s energy beneficiaries, 12 per cent free power generated from the project shall be provided to the State of Jammu and Kashmir. The NHPC team achieved this milestone with their relentless hard work and dedication.
