I A Energy and specialist power and water consulting firm Entura today announced the conclusion of the 36 MW Chanju-I run-of-river hydropower project in Chamba, Himachal Pradesh, India.

The milestone was announced during a hydropower roundtable hosted by the Australian Trade and Investment Commission in New Delhi, attended by Tasmania’s Minister for Energy, Matthew Groom; representatives of the Ministry of Power, Government of India; and members of the private sector.

The participation of the private sector in generation, transmission and distribution of electricity in India was approved in 2005. Chanju-I was awarded to I A Energy through a competitive bidding process and the business engaged Entura in 2007.
