Aizawl: The abandoned Tuirial hydro power project, revived from April this year, is expected to generate power by 2014.

The public investment board (PIB) had last year given its nod to the Union power ministry’s proposal to revive the 60MW hydel project near Bilkhawtlir, about 135km from Aizawl.

”After arduous work of removing scrubs, trees and weeds, construction works actually began from September this year. At present, we are working on two diversion tunnels, 782 metres each, which we hope to complete by January next year,” Gard, general manager of Patel Engineering Ltd, told visiting journalists.

The hydel project is designed to generate 60 MW of power 12 per cent of which would be shared by the state.
