NHPC is planning to begin construction of the 2,000 MW Lower Subansiri power plant in October 2019 as it has received the requisite approval from the Assam government.
The company had inked a memorandum of agreement (MoA) with Arunachal Pradesh for setting up the project in 2010. However, since the project falls in the territories of both Arunachal Pradesh and Assam, the latter’s approval was needed as well.
NHPC is engaged in electric power generation by hydroelectric power plants. The company is also engaged in contracts, project management and consultancy works.
