KSEB to modernise three plants in India

The Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) in India is upgrading and modernising three hydro power stations at Panniar, Pallivasal and Sengulum in Iddukki district. The project involves a total investment of US$53.3M and will be completed within a time span of 12 to 18 months. KSEB is planning to start work on the project during the last quarter of 2000 (as IWP&DC went to press).

Meanwhile, the Meghalaya State Electricity Board in Arunachal Pradesh, has signed an agreement with Mitsui Corporation of Japan to modernise the 4 x 9MW Summer power house of the Umiam hydro power station. The US$12.27M contract involves the supply of necessary machinery and equipment and training of engineers. TPK India has been awarded the US$1.15M contract for erecting the plant and machinery. The entire project is estimated to cost around US$283.44M. US$205.39 is being provided by JBIC while the rest of the funds will be sourced from local agencies and governments. The project is scheduled to be completed by 2003.
