  • India's NTPC eyeing 9,750-MW hydropower project

    ARUNACHAL PRADESH, India 1/31/12 (PennWell) -- India's NTPC power company has submitted a pre-feasibility report for a 9,750-MW hydroelectric project on the Brahmaputra River in Arunachal Pradesh.

    The Siang Upper hydropower facility would be the second largest in Asia after China's Three Gorges plant and would increase the state-owned utility's overall production by more than a quarter.

    Sources say NTPC's filing was partially prompted by reports of Chinese plans to construct a hydro project upstream on the Brahmaputra (called Yarlung Tsangpo in China).

    The countries currently have a doctrine of prior appropriation, which says the river's rights of first appropriation belong to whoever utilizes it first.
