Kakkad Hydroelectric Project

Kakkad hydro electric project was commissioned in the year 1998 and completed in the year 1999. This is one of the major power house projects across Veluthodu, Moozhiyoor, Pamba. It is an operational Dam structure lying in zone 3 of the Indian seismic zone. The basin of this dam is west flowing rivers and comes under south hydroelectric region. It is a storage type of hydroelectric development. This power plant is owned by kerala government and is operated by kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB). Location of the dam is Seethathodu, Pathanamthitta, Kerala, India. The total number of turbines is two and capacity of each turbine is 25 megawatt making the total installed capacity to 50 megawatt. The type of turbine used is Francis turbine. Both turbine and generator manufacturer of project is Bharat Heavy Electrical Limited, India. There are total two units of 25 megawatt each making it 50 megawatt. There are two commissioned units with two penstocks each having 25m length. The purpose of this project is hydroelectric power generation. Water flowing through the turbines is 45.16 cumecs. The altitude of the reservoir above mean sea level is at a maximum of 192.6 and minimum of 181.36m. The name of the dam is Moozhiyar Sabarigiri Dam. The configuration of powerhouse is one surface powerhouse. Power production potential at design is 262 GW hours per year at water head of 132.6m.  Capacity of main reservoir at FRL is 1.16 mm cumec. This power plant is used for base load.
