GE Renewable Energy’s Hydropower businessGE Power India has commissioned the 180 MW Bajoli Holi Project. Three units of 60 MW each have been generating electricity since the project was connected to the grid in March 2022. The 180 MW run-of-the-river power facilities has a head race tunnel of more than 16 km and has been constructed on the river Ravi in the Chamba district of Himachal Pradesh in northern India. The completion of this project is a step towards using the power potential of the state to support both Himachal Pradesh and the entire northern region of India. In addition to providing the local population with sustainable and clean energy, the Bajoli Holi Hydropower Plant actively contributes to the proper functioning of the country’s infrastructure. For instance, it generates 94 per cent of energy required by the Delhi International Airport Limited – the last 6 per cent coming from on-site solar power plants. The Bajoli Holi Project was awarded in March 2015. GE Hydro Solutions was responsible for design and engineering, supply, transportation, erection, testing and commissioning of vertical Francis turbines, generators, penstock valve, Main Inlet Valve, digital governing system, excitation system, control and monitoring, protection system, electrical and mechanical balance of plant equipment. As an engineering and manufacturing supplier of the Bajoli Holi Hydropower Plant, GE Hydro Solutions has cooperated in overcoming challenges and difficulties during the entire execution of the project and provided its customer GMR with a complete set of high-quality and reliable-performance hydropower equipment.
