ITANAGAR, Sept 15 - The North Eastern Electric Power Corporation (NEEPCO) today said its two hydro electric projects in Arunachal Pradesh are on the verge of completion and they would be commissioned next year.
Commissioning of the 600 MW Kameng Hydro Electric Project and the 110 MW Pare Hydro Electric Project was delayed by about a couple of months due to floods and landslides.
�The Pare Hydro Project is set to be commissioned by February end next year, while the Kameng project would take another two months,� NEEPCO Personnel Director S Borgohain said here.
Later Chief Minister Pema Khandu raised the issue of establishment of a NEEPCO office in the State, a long-pending demand of project affected people.
Borgohain said this was being taken up with the Union Power Ministry. Besides the Pare and Kameng electric projects, NEEPCO runs the 405 MW Ranganadi hydro electric project in Lower Subansiri district, which was commissioned in 2002. � PTI
