Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

State-run power equipment maker BHEL today said it has fully commissioned the 330 MW Kishanganga Hydro-Electric Project in Jammu and Kashmir with the synchronisation of its third unit.

The first two units of the project were commissioned last month.

All the three units have been commissioned within a short span of 18 days, BHEL said in a statement.

Developed by state-run hydro power giant NHPC Ltd, the project is located on the tributary of the river Jhelum, in Bandipora district of J&K.

The 3x110 MW Kishanganga project will be able to generate 1,350 Million Units (MU) of clean electricity annually, facilitating reduction of greenhouse emissions.

The equipment was supplied from the BHEL's manufacturing units at Bhopal, Jhansi, Rudrapur and Bengaluru while the execution of works on site was carried out by the company's Power Sector Northern Region division and Transmission Business Group.

BHEL has so far commissioned 33 Hydro sets with a cumulative capacity of 1,477 MW in J&K.
