  • Heavy rains disrupting operation at Indian hydroelectric projects

    India Flag

    Silt, debris and high waters created by one of the heaviest monsoons in India's history have halted operations at a number of hydroelectric projects in the northern part of the country, sources have reported.

    According to India's meteorological department, areas in Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand states have already received as much as 440% their normal rainfall, severely effecting the power supply in a region heavily dependent on hydro power.

    The power house at the 280-MW Dhauliganga plant is already under water, sources report, while silt has caused disruptions at the 1,500-MW Nathpa Jhakri, 400-MW Koteshwar and 1,000-MW Karcham Wangtoo hydropower projects.

    HydroWorld.com reported similar silt-related problems at several of the same hydel plants in August 2012.
