Srisailam Tailpond Dam, Right Side NOF, Krishna River (downstream of Srisailam dam), Telangana
Srisailam Tailpond Dam
With the completion of tail pond, surplus electricity from the electricity grid would be used for pumping the water back to Srisailam reservoir and recycled for meeting peaking load on daily basis. During this time, the scheme works in pumping mode or special pump mode. The generators are designed to operate as an electric motor which rotates the turbines in reverse, and pumps water back into upper reservoir.
Thus surplus electricity is utilised to fill the reservoir, which can be used to meet the peak electricity requirements.
ConTec was appointed as consultant for design and drawings in respect of right side abutment for protection of Srisailam Tailpond weir by Andhra Pradesh Power Generation Corporation (APGENCO).
Contec ia now involved with the design and detailed engineering for construction of tail pond dam at new location on account of damage to the existing tail pond dam.
