  • West Bengal planning 1,000 MW pumped-storage plant

    An official from India's West Bengal region says the government is planning a 1,000 MW pumped-storage plant in the Purulia District, HydroWorld.com has learned.

    Speaking at a Confederation of Indian Industry meeting, India's principal secretary of its state power department, Malay De, says the US$470 million project would help restructure the region's energy portfolio.

    "90% of the power generated in the state is from thermal power stations," De says. "So, our strategy is to exploit all possible hydro sources."

    The plant would be controlled by the West Bengal State Electricity Development Corporation Limited (WBSEDCL), which already operates another 900 MW pumped-storage facility within the Purulia District.
