BBMB sets new power generation record

Chandigarh, August 1 : The Bhakra-Beas Management Board (BBMB) has broken a 25-year-old record in power generation, achieving 1,587 million units from all its power stations during last month, a spokesman said here Thursday.

He said that the new power generation record was higher than the 1,542 million units (MU) set in July 1988.

"This all-time high generation is 38 percent more than Central Electricity Authority of India's targeted value for July," the spokesman said.

The BBMB manages the 225-metre-high Bhakra Dam and other hydroelectric projects in Himachal Pradesh and Punjab.

The spokesman said greater power generation also led to the benefit of flood threat being moderated.
