Project Location : Toss, Kullu district, Himachal Pradesh
Project Capacity : 10 MW

Sai Engineering Foundation set up 10 MW Toss hydro electric project in Toss village in Kullu district of Himachal Pradesh. The project involves setting up of run-of-the river scheme and involves construction of a trench type diversion weir, intake chamber, desilting chamber, power channel in the form of an underground free-flow un-pressurized tunnel, fore bay, penstocks with saddles, anchor blocks and the power station with the tailrace for discharging the water back into the river. The project comprises two identical power-generating units of capacity 5000 kW each (Pelton turbine).

How Hydro Power works?

Hydropower is using water to power machinery or make electricity. Water constantly moves through a vast global cycle, evaporating from lakes and oceans, forming clouds, precipitating as rain or snow, then flowing back down to the ocean. The energy of this water cycle, which is driven by the sun, can be tapped to produce electricity or for mechanical tasks like grinding grain. Hydropower uses a fuel 'WATER' that is not reduced or used up in the process. Because the water cycle is an endless, constantly recharging system, hydropower is considered a renewable energy.

When flowing water is captured and turned into electricity, it is called hydroelectric power or hydropower. There are several types of hydroelectric facilities; they are all powered by the kinetic energy of flowing water as it moves downstream. Turbines and generators convert the energy into electricity, which is then fed into the electrical grid to be used in homes, businesses, and by industry.
