New Delhi: SJVN Limited on Tuesday announced that it has completed tunnel excavation work of its Naitwar Mori Hydro Power Project. SJVN Limited's Chairman & Managing Director (CMD) Nand Lal Sharma triggered the last blast to mark the completion of heading excavation of the 4.3-kilometre-long head-race tunnel of 60 MW Naitwar Mori Hydro Electric Project in Uttarakhand. SJVN Limited's Naitwar Mori Hydro Electric Project has the potential to generate 265.5 million units of electricity every year.

Uttarakhand is set to get 12 percent free power from the hydro project as royalty. 

Sharma also inaugurated the newly constructed office complex, Transit Camp and Township ‘Yamuna Parisar’ at the project site.

Sharma inspected project sites and reviewed various components of the project which included Head Race Tunnel, Barrage, Powerhouse, Surge Shaft and 220 KV Transmission Line. He conveyed his satisfaction with the progress of all major components of the project.

Addressing the employees, Sharma said, “We are glad to inaugurate the office complex with all the amenities for the upcoming Naitwar Mori HEP of SJVN. The project would further accelerate the government’s commitment to providing round the clock (RTC) energy to our nation and will also lead to the achievement of the shared vision of SJVN, for becoming a 25,000 MW company by 2040. Timely completion of the project, as well as the welfare of the employees, are the hallmarks of SJVN’s commitment.”

He further encouraged the employees to work with dedicated hard work and keep up the pace for completing the project within the scheduled time. He urged all the SJVN employees and representatives of the contractors to strictly follow safety protocols and COVID appropriate behaviors.
