NTPC is setting up the 800 MW Kol Dam hydro project in Satluj in Bilaspur district in Himachal Pradesh over the upstream of Bhakra river. The project is likely to be commissioned by 2013. Around 80% of the work have been completed including the four turbine units (4 x 200 MW) for power generation. The project will depend on water diversion from Bhakra river from upstream to Kol dam, as Bhakra river irrigates most of Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan. The Himachal Pradesh government will receive 12% free power from the project as royalty.
