India’s largest hydroelectric plant, the Nathpa Jhakri project shut down due to heavy rain

Operations at the 1,500MW Nathpa Jhakri project in Himachal Pradesh, India’s largest hydroelectric plant, have been affected due to high silt content in the turgid and fast-moving Sutlej river.

SJVN Ltd’s Nathpa Jhakri project is a joint venture between the Union and Himachal Pradesh governments.

The 1,000-MW Karchham Wantoo project has also been shut due to heavy silt in Sutlej. These projects feed the northern grid.
