Bhakra Beas Management Board (BBMB) has generated 11,482 million units of energy up to March 31, 2021 from all its power houses against target of 9,600 million units fixed by the Central Electricity Authority for the 2020-2021 fiscal.

BBMB power houses were able to generate 19.60 per cent more energy than the target due to judicious operation of reservoirs as well as efficient operation and maintenance of the generating units of its six power plants, according to an official statement issued on Thursday. 

Plant load availability of generating machines in BBMB power houses has been 97.04 per cent, which is one of the highest in the country. The transmission availability has been registered as 99.82 per cent, which is much more than normative availability of 98.5 per cent for hydro-generating stations. 

BBMB chairman Sanjay Srivastava felicitated all the employees for maintaining high excellency even during the grave situation of COVID-19 pandemic and congratulated them for surpassing their targets.
