Energo, in association with Jammu & Kashmir Power Development Corporation Limited, is developing a 21MW hydro power project on BOOT basis.

Patnazi Power Limited was formed as a subsidiary of EEPL to undertake development of 21MW Patnazi Bunjwah Hydro Power Project near Thatri, District Kishtwar, and Province Jammu of J&K State on BOOT basis. PPL has entered into Implementation Agreement for this Hydro Project with Jammu & Kashmir State Power Development Corporation Limited (JKSPDC) for a concession period of 35 years  

Project Details

The 21MW Patnazi Bunjwah Hydro Power Project is a run of the river scheme on Kalnai Nallah, a tributary of Kaguni Nallah (which further joins river Chenab at Thathri) in Tehsil Kishtwar, District Kishtwar (J&K). The total catchment area of Kalnai Nallah at proposed diversion site (EL 1740m) has been estimated at 347sq.km.

The project envisages diverting Kalnai Nallah inflows by constructing a diverging structure to divert the flow of the river up to desilting tank. The flow would lead to surface power house through a penstock of 290m length to feed generating units comprising 3 units of 7.0MW each.

The land for setting up the Project is being provided by the State Government on lease, for a period of forty (40) years. The evacuation of power will be done from the 132kv bus-bars of the Project through a dedicated transmission line to be laid up to the Interconnection Point. The Interconnection Point for injection of power is envisaged to be 132kv Bus of the upcoming Lower Kalnai Hydro Power Project of JSKPDC which is located downstream to our Project location.

The project site is well connected with the nearest railway station at about 160 Km in Udhampur and the nearest airport at about 220 Km in Jammu. Besides this, the project site is also well connected with the existing road network in the area.
