The Tidong Hydropower Project (THP) is a 150 MW run-of-river hydroelectric power project on a tributary of Sutlej River in Kinnaur District of Himachal Pradesh, India.
The proposed project activity will utilize the water of the Tidong Khad, a major tributary of the Sutlej River, to harness the head of 610 m and generate a design energy of 414 GWh per annum.
Statkraft acquired the project in 2018 and it was approximately 60 percent complete at the time of acquisition.
The project comprises an 8km long headrace tunnel, 110 m high surge shaft, 1200 m long pressure shaft, and the surface powerhouse.
The project has a storage capacity for 3 to 4 hours peaking.
Design Energy (GWh) - 414
Plant Capacity (MW) – 2X50 (100) MW
