Maharashtra Water Resources Department (MAHAWRD) is planning to undertake the construction of a hydropower plant in Maharashtra, India.
The project involves the construction of a pump storage facility with a generation capacity of 500MW. In the pump storage method water used for the generation of electricity is stored in a lower dam and then pumped out to an upper dam for running turbines when needed.
The project also includes the construction of a powerhouse, a substation, water storage tanks, a lower dam to store water for generating power, an upper dam for running turbines, spillway, headrace and tailrace tunnels, shafts, and access roads, the installation of gates, a generator and a dam controlling system and the laying of transmission lines.
MAHAWRD has completed the ground work and has planned to conduct a detailed survey of the site for the development.
MAHAWRD invited tenders for survey works on April 16, 2013 with submission deadline of May 15, 2013.
Feasibility studies are underway.
The project involves the construction of a pump storage facility with a generation capacity up to 500MW at Varandh Ghat, Pune in Maharashtra, India.
The US$700 million project includes the following:
1. Construction of a lower dam to store water for generating power
2. Construction of an upper dam for running turbines
