NHPC-built, owned and operated 510 MW Teesta-V Power Station, Sikkim has been conferred with the prestigious ‘Blue Planet Prize’ by the International Hydropower Association (IHA), a London-based non-profit membership association operating in 120 countries.

Further, the award for Teesta-V Power Station, located in the Himalayan State of Sikkim, was announced during the World Hydropower Congress, 2021.

Also, the award had been conferred to Teesta-V Power Station based on its sustainability assessment undertaken by a team of accredited lead assessors of IHA in 2019 using the Operation Stage tool of the Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol (HSAP) of IHA.

The International Hydropower Association membership includes leading hydropower owners and operators, developers, designers, suppliers and consultants.

The Blue Planet Prize of IHA has been awarded to hydropower projects that demonstrate excellence in sustainable development.

The HSAP is the leading international tool for measuring the sustainability of hydropower projects. It offers a way to benchmark the performance of a hydropower project against a comprehensive range of environmental, social, technical and governance criteria.

Meanwhile, the assessments are based on objective evidence and the results have been presented in a standardized report.
