The Project Daman Ganga SHP–II

The Project Daman Ganga SHP–IIThe 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 Project is Power (Tarini) cum Irrigation scheme (Govt. of Gujarat) with capacity of 2.6 MW.
The water discharged through the Irrigation Canal is being utilized to feed a Generating Unit connected through single, bifurcated Steel Penstock of 2.5 M dia , 12 mm thick, 74 m long from the Dam duct with Butter Fly Valve of 2.6 m dia. The additional Butter Fly Valve of the same specification is provided at the mouth of the bifurcated Penstock for release of water in the canal during maintenance period. The Project has been such designed that the water released through the Gated Tail Pool will be diverted back to the main Irrigation canal.
The Power House Building (14.5 X 11.7 ) houses single (Vertical Kaplan) of 2.6 MW capacity (Austria) compatible Hydro Generator from France and linked with state of the art Control Pannels procured locally through reputed manufacturers . 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. To facilitate handling of equipment, an EOT of 15 tons capacity has been provided at the top of the Power House.The Project Daman Ganga SHP–II
The metering system and relays are installed inside a common Sub / Control Station at a short distance of 500 mtrs from the Power House.
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 Mota Panda – Govt. of Gujarat.
The debt. funded by the Bank of India, Chennai Corporate Banking Branch, Chennai, the Project is ready for commission as certain clearances are awaited from the state Govt. end. The Power being generated is being supplied to the state grid of Gujarat.
