Sindol Power Complex comprises of three nos. of run off river schemes on the downstream of
Hirakud Dam, The scheme will utilise the drop in river bed above 14 Mt. 26 Mt. & 18 Mt. at Sindol I,II & III respectively, with in a span of 95 Km from Chipilima P.H. and regulate the water release and spill water from Hirakud Reservoir of Power Generation.
The total estimated cost of the complex is Rs.2431.70 Cr. ( as per 2006 PER). on implementation, the complex would yield 1084.28 GWH annually and add peaking capacity upto 300 MW to the Stat Grid.
The major features of these three schemes are furnished below:
§ A Barrage of length 811.5 M with design discharge of 37600 Cumecs.
§ Intake cum Power House accommodating 3 x 30 MW Unit
§ 220 KV Switchyard in left bank with three number of feeders.
§ A barrage of length 919.5 M with design flood discharge 38600 Cumecs.
§ Right and left marginal embankment of length 7 Km and 4 Km respectively.
§ Intake cum Power House accommodating 3 x 30 MW Units.
§ 220 KV Switchyard in left bank with 2 number of feeders.
§ A Barrage of length 1017.5M with design flood discharge 45100 Cumecs.
§ No mariginal embankement mentioned.
§ Intake cum Power House accommodating 4 x 30 MW Units .
§ 220 KV Switchyard on left bank with 2 numbers of feeder.
WAPCOS suggested to take up the work of Surveys related to topographic,socio-economic,
property and R & R plan etc. to be carried out for the area which is coming under
submergences for Sindol-1 H.E. Project before taking up the work preparation of DPR
for Sindol-1 H.E. Project.
OHPC had requested WAPCOS for submitting their financial proposal for carrying out of these works. The basis cost for carrying of these studies by WAPCOS as worked out would be Rs. 13.00 Lakhs ( service tax extra) and the time involved would be 6-8 months.
WAPCOS had explored the possibility of getting the work done from outside agencies. In this connection, the matter was discussed with M/s Green C a company engaged in similar works by WAPCOS who have quoted Rs. 7.5 Lakhs + service tax with a completion period of 2 months. Hence there is a savings both in terms of money and time.
The matter has been discussed in the 79th OHPC Board Meeting held on 15.12.2006, whwrein it was discussed to take up the project with NHPC. The same has been moved to Govt. of Orissa for necessary action vide this office letter No. 876 dt. 05.02.07. Meanwhile OHPC had requested NHPC/WAPCOS to submit DPR. NHPC denied. Preliminary offer received from WAPCOS. Our views have been intimated to them & reply awaited.
