The Telangana State Power Generation Corporation Ltd (TS-Genco) has declared two units of 40 MW each at the (6 x 40 MW) Lower Jurala Hydro-Electric Project at Revulapally in Mahabubnagar district commercially operational.
Director (Hydel) of TS-Genco Ch. Venkata Rajam said on Saturday that the two units were declared commercially operational on July 28 following the installed capacity tests done in the presence of representatives of the two Discoms, TS-Transco and TS Power Coordination Committee.
The commencement of commercial operation of the units 3 and 4 of the Lower Jurala hydel project would add 80 MW to TS-Genco’s capacity, he stated. The two units would be in a position to supply 120 MW of generation during peak hours when there is flow in the river below Jurala reservoir through spillway discharges or water let out after power generation in the hydel unit at the reservoir site.
Meanwhile, generation of power at the 6×39 MW Priyadarshini Jurala Hydro-Electric Project at the dam site is going on from July 21 with the number of units generating power depending on inflows into the reservoir. Sam Mills Womens JerseyShare This
