BHEL commissions 82.5 MW Hydro Set in Uttarakhand


New Delhi, May 6: Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has successfully commissioned the first unit of 82.5 MW at the upcoming Shrinagar Hydro Electric Project (HEP) in Uttarakhand. The greenfield hydro electric project consisting of four units of 82.5 MW each is being set up by Alaknanda Hydro Power Corporation Limited (GVK Group).
