Milestone Achieved: SJVN’s 60 MW Naitwar Mori HEP Unit Now Live on National Grid.

On November 30, 2023, the successful synchronization of the Second Unit of the 60 MW Naitwar Mori Hydro Electric Project (NMHEP) with the National Grid was announced by SJVN, as conveyed by Sh. Nand Lal Sharma, the Chairman & Managing Director. Situated on the River Tons, a significant tributary of the River Yamuna in Uttarkashi district, Uttarakhand, NMHEP comprises two 30 MW units, with the first unit having commenced commercial operations earlier in the month. Sh. Nand Lal Sharma highlighted the challenges faced during the construction period, including the impact of the pandemic, emphasizing the dedication and hard work that resulted in the completion of the project in just over five years amidst geologically unpredictable and challenging Himalayan conditions.

Sh. Nand Lal Sharma also noted that the NMHEP, classified as a Run of the River project, features two generating units, each with a capacity of 30 MW, contributing to an annual electricity generation of 265.5 million units. SJVN’s commitment to the region includes the construction of a 37 km 220 KV Transmission Line for power evacuation from Naitwar Mori HEP, extending from Bainol to Snail. Following the commissioning of the project, Uttarakhand will receive 12% of the generated electricity as royalty, and Project Affected Families will be granted an amount equivalent to the cost of 100 units of electricity per month for ten years, thereby fostering overall development and employment opportunities in the region. SJVN, as a leading Power CPSU, remains dedicated to advancing the energy goals of the Government of India, aligning with its mission for sustainable progress. More Related to SJVN News
