Reliance Power

Back

Reliance Power is developing 5,292 MW of hydroelectric power capacities at twelve locations in the states of Arunachal Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. The company has added hydroelectric power plants into its portfolio to take benefit of the immense hydro potential of the country. Further, having hydro power in the portfolio ensures a right generation mix in the portfolio and also offers the benefits of making available peaking power at different periods of times and different seasons.

They are all run-of-river projects located in higher reaches of the river valley and therefore do not result in large-scale displacement of people.

Hydroelectric power projects typically take 9-10 years of implementation. The company is however targeting to implement these projects at a faster pace and is planning to commission these projects in a period of 5-6 years.

The company has completed various developmental activities for these projects. A key milestone for a hydroelectric power project is the preparation of Detailed Project Report (DPR) and obtaining concurrence for the DPR from the Central Electricity Authority (CEA). The DPR is a detailed report which covers all aspects of development of a project including justification for the project, site specifications based on survey and investigation of the location, hydrology for the project, reservoir requirements, design for civil structures, electrical and mechanical designs, details of the transmission system for evacuating of power from the project, infrastructure facilities, environmental and ecological aspects, project cost estimates and schedules for implementation of the project. The DPR once prepared is then submitted to the CEA which thoroughly scrutinizes the same and concurs it.

The company has undertaken the process of preparation of the DPR for the hydroelectric power projects and has completed the same for 2900 MW. The company had also completed the environmental clearance process for 1700 MW. EC for another 1200 MW is in advanced stage. Has obtained Stage 1 approval for Environmental Clearance for another 1292 MW.
