Allain Duhangan Hydro Project Limited (ADHPL) on Wednesday announced the commissioning of the first phase of 192 MW hydro power project at Manali in Himachal Pradesh. ADHPL is a subsidiary of Malana Power Company Limited (MPCL), a joint venture between Bhilwara Energy Limited (BEL) and Norway's SN Power. ADHPL, a run-of-the-river project on Allain and Duhangan rivers, once fully operational is designed to generate 820 million units annually. With this, the total installed capacity of the Bhilwara Group in hydro power has gone up to 300 MW. MPCL has an operational 86 MW project at Kullu which was commissioned in 2001.
“With this our journey into the critical power sector gets momentum and we are all set to rationalise our capabilities and create many more hydro power projects which bring tremendous strength to our value chain,” said LNJ Bhilwara Group Chairman Ravi Jhunjhunwala.
