India sees hydropower as an important renewable energy segment as it not only helps the country to meet rising power demand but also manages the fluctuations caused by intermittent solar and wind supplies.
With a height of 278 metres, the high concrete gravity dam will be India's tallest. The project would have six horseshoe-shaped head race tunnels of length varying from 300m to 600 m with 9 m diameter, an underground Power House, and six horseshoe-shaped tailrace tunnels of length varying from 320m to 470 m with 9m diameter.
The approved amount includes INR 67.2 billion for flood moderation and enabling infrastructure connecting the construction site. Upon completion of the project, the government of Arunachal Pradesh would receive 12 percent of its cost.
A storage-based hydroelectric project, Dibang is expected to protect various areas of Assam from flooding.
