View of a Dam Foot Power House

In Maharashtra, the construction of Hydro Electric Projects is entrusted to Water Resources Department ( Formerly known as Irrigation Department). Works of Hydro Electric Power Projects are being executed in close co-ordination of Civil, Mechanical and Electrical wings of Water Resources Department. Major Hydro Electric Power Projects constructed in the State are Irrigation Based Dam Foot Power Houses except for some large independent Hydro Electric Projects. The Energy generated from these Hydro Electric Projects is being fed into MAHAGENCO’s grid. After successfully commissioning and Synchronizing the Hydro Electric Projects, they are handed over to MAHAGENCO for operation & maintenance purpose.

Completed Projects
At the end of June 2010, total 48 Hydro Electric Projects have been completed in the state with overall installed capacity of 3567.825 Mega Watts.

 

Projects under Construction:
Hydro Electric Projects are being constructed departmentally through GoMWRD as also through Privatisation. Government of Maharashtra has formulated a Hydro Policy vide resolution No.PVT-1204/(160/2004)/H.P.Dated:15.09.205 in order to boost the participation of private developers in the development of small hydro electric projects in the state. Under this policy, seven small hydro electric projects has already been completed and following small hydro electric projects are in various stages of construction.
