Larsen & Toubro, has announced 100 per cent completion and readiness for commissioning of the 99 MW Singoli–Bhatwari hydroelectric Power Plant. The run-of-the-river plant will generate over 400 MUs units of renewable energy per annum….

The plant houses three units of Voith Turbine generators of 33 MW each, equipped with a state-of-the-art switchyard and controlled via supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) technology. Grid synchronization and charging of the transmission lines is expected in approximately a month, and is timed during the inauguration of the plant. State transmission utility PTCUL supported the project by executing one of the fastest ever transmission lines connecting the 75 km distance between the project site and the nearest substation.
