In close collaboration with the India Meteorological Department (IMD), NASA’s satellite radar surveys, local precipitation gauges assembled and operated by us, and discharge gauges were used to determine the discharge data of the Pakke River (tributary of the Marsiangi River). The method, erstamls applied, was praised by the Central Water Commission (CWC) as innovative and recognized. The energy production of 250GWh/a makes a considerable contribution to a region in which there is still 40% undersupply.
Through several site inspections on site, the DHPI team got an accurate picture of the conditions and the location, without which planning and implementation would not be possible. In close cooperation with the teams of the EDCL, this project was completed successfully in planning in 2017. The permit for construction and operation was granted by the Government of India.
