Himachal Pradesh invites bids for 27 hydro projects

01 May 2022

Himachal Pradesh government has planned to allot 27 hydropower projects having a combined tentative generation capacity of 722.4 MW for which proposals from ‘eligible bidders’ have been invited for the implementation of these projects. These are located in Chamba, Kangra, Lahaul-Spiti, Kullu, Shimla and Kinnaur districts and will be executed in the private sector on Build, Own, Operate and Transfer (BOOT) basis. 

The project developers have reportedly been required to provide free power from the project as royalty to the government in lieu of surrendering the potential site at 12 per cent for the agreement period. Detailed project reports of 7 projects have already been prepared and Preliminary Feasibility Reports (PFRs) and salient features of the remaining projects are also available.
