Cabinet okays revised cost estimate of Uttarakhand hydro power project

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has approved the Revised Cost Estimate-I of 400 MW Koteshwar Hydro Electric Project (HEP) in Uttarakhand at an estimated completion cost of Rs.2,717.35 crore.

The project is being implemented by Tehri Hydro Development Corporation (THDC) India Limited.

In addition to additional generating capacity of 400 MW of peaking power it will regulate releases from Tehri Reservoir for irrigation and drinking water supply. The reservoir of Koteshwar HEP will also act as lower reservoir for under construction Tehri PSP (1000 MW).

The project has already been commissioned fully in March, 2012. Only balance works are to be done which are not linked with operation of the Plant but essential for safety and completion of the project.
