Kuttiyadi Hydroelectric Project

Kuttiyadi Hydro Electric Project was completed and commissioned in the year 1972. The project is located at Kuttiyadi dam, at Kuttiyadi River. The kuttiyadi dam is situated at Peruvannamuzhi, approximately 60 Km from Kozhikode, Kerala, India. This is a major type project and the total installed capacity of the project is 225 MW. This is a dam shaped structure and the power house is a surface type. The project is currently in operational situation. This is a storage type hydroelectric project and the seismic zone is zone III. The project is owned by the Kerala government and comes under the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB). The project has 6 turbines and all the turbines are in pelton shape. Out of the 6 turbines, 3 turbines has a capacity of 25 MW and the other 3 has a capacity of 50 MW. The turbine and generator manufacturers of the project are Fuji Japan for units 1, 2 and 3. VA Tech Hydro is the manufacturers for unit 4 and BHEL is for units 5 and 6. The project has 6 numbers of commissioned units and 1 penstock. The length of the penstock is 2083 meters. West flowing rivers are the hydroelectric basin of the project and the hydroelectric region of the project is south hydroelectric region. The project is mainly used for hydroelectric power generation.
