Shimla, July 19

Mini Nav Ratna Government company, Satluj Jal Vidyut Nigam Limited (SJVNL), achieved an all-time high in power generation during a single day on Tuesday.

The Public sector hydropower spokesperson reported a record-breaking 50.498 million units of electricity generated in a single day from its two power projects, the 1,500 MW Nathpa Jhakri Hydropower Station, and the 412 MW Rampur hydropower project.

Chairman and Chief Managing Director Nand Lal Sharma stated that the Nathpa Jakhri power project contributed 39.527 million units, while the Rampur station added 10.971 million units on July 17, 2023.

Previously, the highest per day generation record at the Nathpa station was 39.526 million units on August 29, 2022. However, the Rampur station set a new record by generating 10.971 million units on Tuesday.

During this year, the 50 MW Sadla Windpower Station also achieved its highest generation of 15.039 million units, surpassing its previous record of 11.119 million units in 2021-22.

SJVNL performed exceptionally well during the peak power season, benefiting from increasing water flow due to thawing of snowfall. In the first quarter of this year, they achieved 101.05 million units, representing approximately 73% growth compared to the corresponding period last year. This increase includes power generated from hydro, wind, and solar sources.

“Our achievements are the result of efficient management, optimum operation and maintenance practices, as well as proper repair and maintenance of the project components, which have contributed to achieving maximum efficiency and productivity,” said Sharma.

The company is committed to sustaining this positive trajectory in power generation and aims to achieve a commission target of 5,000 MW by the end of the current financial year.
