Jammu, Aug 19: Despite enormous hydro power potential in the state, the Power Development Corporation (SPDC) has overlooked enhancement of power generation of existing power projects due to its lack of interest resulting loss of the power and revenue generation in crores.
Sources told Early Times that there was strong need of timely and systematic renovation and maintenance of the hydro power projects to maintain power generation and reduce generation losses, a renovation, modernization and uprating programme was approved for the existing projects under the control of SPDC in 2005.
"Under this programme, around seven Hydroelectric Power Projects were to be covered within a period of one to three years and for this around Rs 200 crore was sanctioned but apathetic approach of the company, the renovation, maintenance programme could not be completed and at many projects the works failed to take off," they said further adding that in case of Renovation, Modernization and Uprating of Chenani-I Hydroelectric Project (CHEP-I) crores of the rupees were spent but work remained incomplete.
Similarly, in Unit-I and II of Pahalgam HEP were many issues which were cropped up since its inception, but it has been more than 13 years these problems were not rectified thereby loss of the power generation worth crores suffered by the State, they informed further adding that company has been losing around 50 MU of power generation per annum from two power projects. They further said that the other projects including USHP-l, Chenani-I, Ganderbal, LJHP, Bazgo, Hunder and Sumoor Hydroelectric Projects have been facing the same fate.
