3. HYDROLOGY

3.1. SINDH NALLAH SYSTEM AND BASIN CHARACTERISTICS

The nallah Sindh is one of the major tributaries of river Jehlum. It starts at an
elevation of 3570 m above msl. The source of the nallah is Panchthrani glacier
RFQ for selection of EPC contractor for 93 MW New Ganderbal HEP in J & K
26 of 62

on the northern watershed of Vovjan range. The bed gradient of the nallah is
fairly steep encountering a number of rapids in negotiating a fall of 460 m in
between Shitkari and Kulan. Between Kulan - Sumbal Kangan the nallah slope
is comparatively flatter. Downstream of Kangan the nallah slope further flattens
upto Ganderbal and thereafter it comparatively flattens like in delta stage in
Anchar Lake from where a defined channel takes off to join the river Jehlum.

Catchment area up to project site is of the order of 1352 sq. km. Out of this
drainage area, the glacier area is about 27 sq. km, which remains under
perpetual snow cover. It is this area of catchment which feeds the nallah
throughout the year and the glacier being very deep, forms substantial deposits
of frozen water. Minimum discharge in the nallah Sindh occurs during the
months December, January and February when the upper catchment in
particulars and the overall area in the general remains under continuous low
temperature. After these months, because of the rise in temperature, snow
melting starts and consequently increases in discharge in the nallah occurs.
Relatively high flows during summer months are largely contributed by snow
melt as well as rainfall in the catchment.


3.2. PRECIPITATION CHARACTERISTICS

The precipitation caused by Southwest monsoon over the project catchment
lasts from June to September occasionally extending upto October. The form of
precipitation is either snow or as rain depending upon the altitude and other
meteorological factors. The catchment of the project upto proposed barrage
site receives 950 mm annual precipitation and the higher ranges of the
catchment receive around 1800 mm precipitation.

4. DESIGN FEATURES OF MAJOR COMPONENTS OF THE PROJECT

4.1. CIVIL

4.1.1. DIVERSION STRUCTURE

A gated barrage across Sindh nallah u/s of existing diversion structure of old
Ganderbal Hydroelectric project is proposed. The height of barrage above
nallah bed is 9 m. Under sluice with 7 bays is also proposed to pass the flood
safely. The high flood level on u/s side of barrage is proposed to be 1748 m .

4.1.2. HEAD RACE TUNNEL

RFQ for selection of EPC contractor for 93 MW New Ganderbal HEP in J & K
27 of 62

The head race tunnel intake is located on the left bank of the nallah. The
bedrock of Cambro-Silurian slate-quartzite of dull grey to slatey grey colour and
of bedded sequence is present at and around the proposed inlet portal site.

The headrace tunnel is 5.15 m in diameter, horse shoe shaped and 10.8 km
long, RCC lined pressure tunnel with two kinks, at 6000 m and 8800 m in 1:600
m grade and two adits of 2000 m and 1000 m (two or three please verify) & a
branch tunnel of 800 m length at 8800 m with a dia of 2 m to deliver 6 cumec
of water for drinking purpose.

4.1.3. POWER HOUSE COMPLEX AND TAILRACE CHANNEL

At the downstream end of the Head race Tunnel, a vertical surge shaft is
provided. The shaft will have a diameter of 14 m and will be restricted orifice
type surge shaft. The total height of the shaft is 80 m.

From the surge shaft tank, steel lined pressure conduit of dia 4.75 m takes off.
It runs horizontally for a short length and then drops to the power house. After
traversing a distance of 225 m, the penstock trifurcates into three branches.

The surface type powerhouse of 51 m X 16 m dimension is located in the forest
nursery on the hill side of Srinagar-Leh national highway near Ganderbal. It will
house three units each of 31 MW Francis turbines. Ground elevation in the
proposed powerhouse and tailrace pool varies from 1585 m to 1601 m. Deepest
foundation level proposed for the power house is 1575.15 m and hillside cut
shall have 1: 0.5 grade.

The water from the tailrace pool is proposed to be carried back to the Sindh
nallah via a 1407 m long channel whose initial 250 m length shall be
rectangular cut & cover duct and rest trapezoidal open concrete lined. It shall
have confluence with Sindh River downstream of Doderhoma Bridge.

5. ELECTRO-MECHANICAL EQUIPMENTS

The New Ganderbal Hydroelectric Project has been envisaged for installation of
3 generating units of 31 MW each, operating under a design net head of 150
m. The generating voltage of 11 kV would be stepped up to 132 kV through 3
phase 18 MVA, 11/132 kV transformers. The power from New Ganderbal would
be evacuated by double circuit 132 kV transmission line to Srinagar.

5.1. MECHANICAL EQUIPMENT
