The plant at Rellichu will bolster the state’s energy agenda expanding the company’s capacity.

Kundan Green Energy has announced today its mandate to develop a greenfield hydropower plant at Rellichu in Sikkim. The Government of Sikkim has awarded the project to Kundan Green Energy, in continuation of the company’s track record of executing hydropower projects to best-in-class standards, within committed timeframes, and yielding optimal results. Scheduled for completion in 2026, the Rellichu hydropower project will generate 21 MW of power, making a substantial contribution to Sikkim’s energy and developmental agenda. Once commissioned, the Rellichu project will increase Kundan Green Energy’s combined hydropower capacity to 125 MW from the current 104 MW.

Speaking on the occasion,  Udit Garg, Director, Kundan Green Energy said “The Northeast accounts for 40 percent of India’s hydropower potential. Of this, Sikkim’s hydropower potential is assessed at 8000 MW peak with a firm base of 3000 MW. With as many as 29 approved hydropower projects in various stages of development, and a 55 MW small hydropower installed capacity, Sikkim has vast potential to generate hydroelectricity. We are enthused to partner with the Government of Sikkim to realise the state’s hydropower potential along with best practices.”  With four operating projects totaling 35 MW (which are being enhanced in capacities), in the state of Sikkim at Lower Lagyap, Meyong Chu, Kalex Khola, and Rabum Chu, besides two upcoming projects at Lower Meyong Chu and New Meyong Chu, Kundan Green Energy is a major energy partner to the state of Sikkim. A strong and growing presence notwithstanding, the company’s salient strength is execution excellence while the industry average in commissioning plants is 8-10 years, Kundan Green Energy’s mean average, including greenfield plants is a mere 4-5 years.
