“THDC Achieves Construction Milestones in Vishnugad-Pipalkoti Hydro Electric Project”

THDC India Limited achieves a significant milestone with the initiation of concrete work on Block No. 1 of the main dam for the 444 MW Vishnugad-Pipalkoti Hydro Electric Project. Sh. R. K. Vishnoi, Chairman and Managing Director of THDC, made this announcement on January 18, 2024, showcasing progress in the nation’s hydroelectric capabilities.

Highlighting another remarkable feat, Sh. Vishnoi recognized the Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) equipped with Double Shield technology. On January 17, 2024, the TBM achieved a record in the Himalayan Hydro Electric Sector by constructing a 24-meter section of a 9.86-meter diameter Head Race Tunnel (HRT) in a single day. This accomplishment, which involved lining installation, Pea Gravel filling, and Grouting, sets a new standard in the region’s geological challenges.

Sh. Vishnoi conveyed his congratulations to the officers and employees of VPHEP for their dedication in a video conference, praising their resilience in overcoming challenges. He emphasized the importance of commencing concrete work on the main dam.

Providing insights into the project, Sh. Vishnoi explained that the Vishnugad-Pipalkoti Hydro Electric Project is a run-of-the-river project located in Chamoli district, Uttarakhand. The project features a 65-meter-high concrete dam on the Alaknanda River with a gross head of 237 meters, aiming to generate 1657 million units of electricity. Significant progress has been made in the civil work on major project structures, including the Power House, Transformer Hall, Dam, HRT, and TRT area.

Project Benefits Beyond Power Generation

The Vishnugad-Pipalkoti Hydro Electric Project’s impact extends far beyond electricity generation. It promises a multitude of benefits for India, including:

  • Clean and Renewable Energy: This project harnesses the power of hydropower, a clean and renewable resource, aligning with India’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint and promoting sustainable energy solutions.
  • Reduced Power Shortages: The project’s substantial electricity generation capacity aims to alleviate peaking power shortages in the Northern Region, ensuring a stable and reliable power supply for millions.
  • Economic Boost: The project creates numerous job opportunities during construction and operation, stimulating economic growth and development in the surrounding areas.
  • Improved Infrastructure: The project includes the development of enhanced transportation links and infrastructure upgrades, fostering better connectivity and regional progress.

A Collaborative Effort for Success

The online meeting held to celebrate these milestones was attended by senior THDC India officials, including Sh. J. Behera (Director, Finance), Sh. Shallinder Singh (Director, Personnel), and Sh. Bhupender Gupta (Director, Technical), demonstrating a united commitment to the project’s success. Their appreciation and encouragement for the VPHEP team highlighted the collaborative spirit driving this ambitious endeavor.

With the initiation of concrete work on the main dam and the TBM’s record-breaking achievement, THDC India Limited is making significant strides in the development of the Vishnugad-Pipalkoti Hydro Electric Project. This project not only promises to bolster India’s hydroelectric power generation capacity but also serves as a beacon of clean energy progress and sustainable development for the nation.
