The first unit of SJVN Limited’s Naitwar Mori hydro electric project (HEP) having capacity of 30 MW has started supplying power to the national electricity grid.
Naitwar Mori HEP is located on River Tons with two generating units of 30 MW each. The second unit of the project is also scheduled to be synchronised this month. The project will generate 265.5 million units of electricity annually. SJVN has constructed a 37 km 220 kV transmission line for evacuation of power from Naitwar Mori HEP from Bainol to Snail. After commissioning of the project, 12 per cent free electricity will be supplied to Uttarakhand as royalty.
