July 26 (Renewables Now) - GE Renewable Energy, the renewables arm of US industrial conglomerate General Electric (NYSE:GE), today announced the commissioning of the 180-MW Bajoli Holi run-of-the-river hydropower plant (HPP) in Himachal Pradesh, northern India.

Acting as an engineering and manufacturing supplier for the project, GE Hydro Solutions, part of GE Power India Limited (GEPIL), connected the plant’s three 60-MW units to the grid in March 2022 and has now achieved full commissioning.

The facility, built on the river Ravi in the Chamba district, supplies electricity to Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport, covering 94% of its demand. The remaining 6% are met with on-site solar power generation.
