Two units of Srisailam hydel project begin power generation

| | Updated on: Aug 31, 2012

Power generation has commenced from two units of the Srisailam hydel power project in Andhra Pradesh.

With the reservoir level going up to 839 feet against the full reservoir level of 885 feet and fresh inflows from the Jurala and Tungabhadra projects, the hydel units have begun generation from midnight. This will provide some relief to the power-starved State.

The water thus let out after generating power will head to the Nagarjunasagar reservoir downstream. This will contribute 300 MW now. The left bank project has six units of 150 MW.
