Uttaranchal Irrigation Our Vision Construction & Maintenance of Hydroelectric Project

Construction & Maintenance of Hydroelectric Project

Uttarakhand has perennial source of water and the rivers are having steep gradient in its geographic boundary. Thus there is a huge potential of hydropower, which has to be exploited for the development of Uttarakhand. The mighty rivers like Ganga and Yamuna have tributaries like Alaknanda, Bhilangana, Mandakini and Tons etc. in addition it has the upper course of rivers like Sharda and Ram Ganga which also have power potential.

Not only power but as a result of harnessing the power projects activities like fisheries, flood control, Irrigation and storage will get boosted up bringing more revenue and employment to the local people apart from safety from natural disasters.

Uttarakhand Irrigation Department is fully equipped technically in the field of formulation of projects, its design and research activities, fabrication and erection of hydro mechanical parts and overall construction of civil works.

Uttarakhand can also undertake the vast experience of retired illustrious engineers of said Department who have preferred to settle down in Dehradun, by keeping presence in the Board of Consultants for the execution of the hydroelectric projects, which can bring the project par excellence.

Construction & Maintenance of Canal/Tube wells

Uttarakhand has 660 Tube wells and 51,000-hectare area is being irrigated through it. Under the administrative controls of the Irrigation Department, 6600 kms of canals are irrigating 2,27,000 hectares area. This is benefiting Uttarakhand by about Rs. 227 crores, directly or indirectly.

Flood Protection

The Irrigation Department, in Garhwal and Kumaon Divisions has undertaken 487 and 111 flood control and soil erosion measures respectively.

In addition, avalanche resistant work in Badrinath; soil erosion works in Kedarnath and Gangotri have been undertaken, to safeguard these holy places.

Yet there is problem of flood control and soil erosion in Udham Singh Nagar, Haridwar, Dehradun and few hill districts of Uttarakhand. To solve these problems, a proposal of about Rs. 40 crores has been prepared after intense survey by Irrigation Department. Uttarakhand Technical Advisory Committee has also reviewed the proposals.

During the current financial year Rs. 3.87 crores budget has been allotted. There is a need to increase the annual budget in order to speed up the measures so that these could benefit the public and the damages are minimized.

Research & Design

Uttarakhand Irrigation Department is responsible to plan, construct and maintain Water Resources and Hydroelectric Projects in the state of Uttarakhand. Irrigation Research Institute (IRI) was established to carry out Research and Development work under the aegis of the U. P. Irrigation Department in the year 1928 as a small research unit in Lucknow.

Mr. Gerald Lacey, the profounder of famous regime theory was the first Research Officer. The success of this small unit was duly acknowledged and in 1945 activities were expanded. The expanded unit was shifted to Bahadrabad (Roorkee) in 1946, where abundance of experimental facilities were available. The research unit at Roorkee rose to a full fledged Institute in 1954. The Institute gradually developed into a pioneer research station and is now engaged in Research and Development activities for almost all multipurpose river valley projects in Northern India.

Fabrication of Hydro-mechanical Equipments (Govt. Workshop, Roorkee)

The workshop was incepted in 1843 at Roorkee during the construction of the Upper Ganga Canal, the largest artificial stream in the world at that time. It also served as an Army Workshop during war in 1903. The workshop was handed over to U. P. Irrigation Department in 1953. Since then, many prestigious works for fabrication and erection of hydro-mechanical equipments have been successfully completed for various important Irrigation and power projects. The workshop also earned the foreign exchange by export assignment of Rolling Gas Turbine Casing as per specifications of M/S SIEMENS, Germany, entrusted by BHEL, Hardwar.

Facilities Available

The worksop has three fabrication shops, two machine shops, plate bending shop equipped for heavy and light fabrication, forge and foundry shop, pattern shop, etc.
