Bhakra Beas Management Board (BBMB) has signed an MoU (Memorandum of Understanding ) with the Government of Himachal Pradesh for operationalising the 40 MW hydropower generation plant at Baggi in the state.
The powerhouse, built on the Beas-Sutlej Link in 1976, has been lying in a disused and dilapidated state since then because of some differences over royalty and power sharing between BBMB member states of HP, Punjab and Rajasthan. Now, the board will invest over ₹ 350 crore to operationalize the project which is to be completed in 4 years time.
It will set up a tailrace at Pandoh-Baggi tunnel. The power generated from the project will be shared among partner states as per the Power Ministry’s order of October 31, 2011, after deducting free power to HP.
