  • Silt causes hydropower plant closures in India's Himachal Pradesh

    High silt levels have forced the shutdown of several large hydropower facilities in India's Himachal Pradesh, HydroWorld.com has learned.

    The plants affected are some of the country's largest, and include 1,500-MW Nathpa Jhakri, 1,000-MW Karcham Wangtoo, 300-MW Chamera II and 231-MW Chamera III.

    The plants are located along India's Satluj and Ravi rivers -- both of which are experiencing excessive silt levels due to heavy rainfalls in catchment areas.

    Sources say the closures are already causing power shortages in the country's northern regions.
