After receiving approval from the Central Electricity Authority (CEA), power major JSW Energy will be able to uprate its Karcham Wangtoo Hydro Electric Power Plant from the present 1,000 MW to 1,091 MW in a phased manner.

Karcham Wangtoo Hydro Electric Power Plant has been owned by JSW Hydro Energy Ltd, a 100 per cent subsidiary of JSW Energy Ltd.

As per the CEA permission, the company will uprate its Hydro Electric Power Plant in a phased manner i.e. from 1,000 MW to 1,045 MW in the first phase for two monsoon seasons in CY 2021 and CY 2022, and to 1,091 MW thereafter.

The company further said that this capacity uprating has been done by 9 per cent to 1,091 MW without any additional capital expenditure, and is a significant boost to the earnings potential of this key asset of JSW Energy.

The country’s largest private sector hydro-plant ‘Karcham Wangtoo plant’ commissioned on September 13, 2011, and has been located on the river Satluj in District Kinnaur of Himachal Pradesh. It has a generating capacity of 1091 MW. Its diversion dam is located at village Karcham and the powerhouse is located near village Wangtoo on NH-5, as per the JSW Energy’s portal.
