BHEL commissions first unit at India's Teesta Low Dam 4 hydropower plant


India's state-owned Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited has successfully commissioned the first of four generating units at the 160-MW Teesta Low Dam 4 hydropower plant.

The run-of-river project is located on the Teesta River in the Darjeeling District of West Bengal.

The installation of the project's second 40 MW turbine unit is nearing completion, BHEL said in a statement this week, and should be commissioned soon.

The project is owned by India's National Hydroelectric Power Corporation, which is also currently working with BHEL to equip the 330-MW Kishanganga in Jammu and Kashmir and 800-MW Parbati 2 in Himachal Pradesh.
