The Nimoo Bazgo hydroelectric project is progressing slowly due to delay in supply of electro-mechanical parts by BHEL.
BHEL is said to be slacking in its efforts to mobilize the resources to meet the project requirement and provide adequate manpower for the 45MW project. Regular meetings held with representatives of BHEL to discuss the criticalities proved to be unfruitful.
Furthermore, the river could not be diverted due to increase in discharge, as a result of which the closure embankment for second division has been rescheduled for November 2011. Also, the heading up of water is expected to commence in July 2012, such that water is available in August 2012.
The scheduled commissioning of one unit has been extended to September 2012.
