The Maharashtra Water Resources Department (MAHAWRD) is planning to construct the Varasgaon Pumped Storage Hydro Power Plant project in Maharashtra, India.
The project involves the construction of a pump storage facility with a generation capacity up to 1,000MW. 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. MAHAWRD will build three dams - two in Velhe and one in Mulshi (both near Pune) to provide water for the power stations.
The project includes the construction of powerhouse, substation, water storage tanks, lower dam to store water for generating power, an upper dam for running turbines, spillway, headrace and tail race tunnels, shafts and access roads, the installation of gates, generator and dam controlling system and the laying of transmission lines.
As of July 2017, the project is in its preliminary stage of implementation.
The project involves the construction of a pump storage facility with a generation capacity of 1,000MW in Varasgaon, Maharashtra, India.
The US$1,200 million project includes the following:
