A consortium led by Larsen & Toubro is to execute the civil and hydromechanical works of the Gandhisagar Pumped Storage Project under a stringent timeline of 30 months. 

Upon completion, the project will be one of the largest clean energy projects of its kind in India. It envisages creation of an upper reservoir near Khemla block village while the existing Gandhisagar reservoir will be the lower reservoir. The project involves constructing an upper dam, intake structure with approach channel, steel lined buried penstock/pressure shaft (Vertical & Horizontal), surface powerhouse, draft tube tunnel, tailrace outlet structure and tailrace channel.
