Hydel Designs Organization
Hydel Designs Organization has been set up for planning, design and issue of drawings for construction of various Hydel Projects in the state. The Projects whose design/drawings work has been successfully executed by this Organization are the Anandpur Sahib Hydel project, UBDC Stage I & II and Mukerian Hydel Project. All design problems regarding operation and maintenance of these Projects have been successfully tackled as and when referred to this Organization for solution. This organization has been working on functional basis maintaining continuity since its inception in 1961. Presently the major assignment being handled in this organization is the design/drawings work of Shahpurkandi Dam Project
The Civil, Mechanical & Electrical design/drawing work of Head Regulator on the left bank of the proposed dam i.e. Shahpurkandi Channel Head Regulator has been carried out and many drawings in this regard have been issued to the field for construction. Civil/Mechanical work relating to Hydel Channel, Head Regulator, bridges, cross drainage works, appurtenant works, and Power Plant design is required to be finalized. In addition to the above, this Organization also deals with preparation of Feasibility Report and Project Report of the planned Hydel Projects like UBDC Stage III, Shahpurkandi Extension Project.
Organization Set Up :
Chief Engineer, Shahpurkandi Design heads the Hydel Designs Organization under whom four Directorates namely Director/AW, Director/PP-II, Director PP-III & Director Mech. & Elect. are working. Each Directorate is headed by a Director in the rank of Superintending Engineer under whose able guidance Senior Design Engineers and Assistant Design Engineers are working. Administration matters are being looked into by Senior Design Engineer/Hydel Admn. . This Organization has been equipped with a small computer section provided with latest design softwares. A centralized Design record of this Organization has a vast wealth of drawings and design computations of Hydro Electric Projects designed by this Organization.
