NTPC plans Rs 1-lakh crore hydropower project in Arunachal

State-owned power producer National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) says it will invest about Rs 1 lakh crore to set up India’s largest hydropower project in Arunachal Pradesh. The Siang Upper Project will have a generation capacity of 9,500 MW, enough to light up two cities like Delhi.
“We are in talks with the Arunachal Pradesh government for setting up the project,” NTPC’s chairman and managing director Arup Roy Choudhury said. “The state has raised a few issues, which we are trying to address.” The company is preparing a detailed report for the project, he said.
The Siang valley on the Brahmaputra river has 17,000 Mw of hydel power potential, according to some estimates. The 1,500-Mw Nathpa Jhakri project is the largest operational hydropower project in India.
