The Project Daman Ganga SHP–I

The Project “Daman Ganga SHP – I is located 30 kms away from Vapi in Distt Valsad, Gujarat and envisages uitilisation of water from the reservoir of the Madhuban Dam built across river Daman Ganga with total catchment area of approx. 1300 sqkm shared by Maharashtra, Gujarat and Dadra & Nagar Haveli (UT). The capacity of the Project is 3 MW (1.5 MW X 2 Units).daman Ganga SHP-I
Two openings have been provided in the body of the Dam which have been further connected with the main Power House Building through 2 nos. Steel Penstocks with 1.5 M dia , 12 mm thick and 9.5 M long coupled with Butter Fly Valves of 1.6 m dia. The Power House Building (22.5 m x 10 m ) is a unique structure of about 24 m height from the deepest foundation level, fully compact and water tight, designed as to submerge in the water during high flood levels. The approach to the Power House is from the top (EL. 61.26 m) and descends at Generator Floor Level at (EL. 44.5 m) housing 2 Generating Units (Vertical Kaplan) of 1.5 MW each (Austrian make) attached with compatible Hydro Generator from France and linked with state of the art Control Pannels procured locally through reputed manufacturers . To facilitate handling of equipment, 1 no. EOT of 20 tons capacity has been provided at the top of the Power House. The top is fully covered with specially designed remote Sliding Roof .
The functioning of the generating units is controlled by the Digital Turbine Control (DTC) and the complete Project can be monitored through sophisticated Digital Control System (DCS) at merely a click of the button, anywhere in the world through designated global positioning link.
The metering system and relays are installed inside a common Sub / Control Station at a short distance of 500 mtrs from the Power House and the power produced is stepped up at 3.3 / 66 kV Switch yard and will further be evacuated through dedicated 66 kV ( 23.5 kms) Double Circuit Transmission Line laid by the Company till receiving Sub Station at Mota Panda – Govt. of Gujarat.
The debt. funded by the Bank of India, Chennai Corporate Banking Branch, Chennai, the prestigious project has recently been commissioned and the Power being generated is being supplied to the state grid of Gujarat.
