Voith has been awarded a contract to deliver four 250 MW Francis turbines and generators, together with auxiliary equipment, for Pakal Dul hydropower plant in Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir.
The technology company signed the deal earlier this year with Chenab Valley Power Projects Private Limited (CVPPPL), a joint venture company of NHPC, JKSPDC and PTC
The Pakal Dul hydropower plant is of high national importance, as it will provide immense benefits for the people living in J&K in terms of improved power supply, employment generation and infrastructure creation after commissioning. The project will further enhance the footprint of Voith in the state of J&K. Voith had previously led the consortium that delivered six units of 150MW in two stages at Baglihar hydropower plant for the state utility Jammu and Kashmir State Development Corporation (JKSPDC). Voith is also executing the Salal Runner replacement project for six units of 115 MW for National Hydro Electric Power Corporation Private Limited (NHPC).
