Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu said that the 2000 MW Subansiri Lower Hydroelectric Project will be commissioned in 2023.
Khandu was speaking on Saturday at the inauguration programme of the Donyi Polo airport near Itanagar.
With the commissioning of the Subansiri project, Arunachal Pradesh will contribute significantly to India’s target of achieving a 5 trillion-dollar economy, Khandu added.
On the 600 MW Kameng Hydropower station, which was dedicated to the nation on Saturday by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Khandu said the run-of-the-river scheme to harness the hydropower of the Bichom and Tenga rivers (tributaries of Kameng river) got delayed due to various reasons for many years.
The Kameng project the construction of which began in February 2005 had missed several deadlines.
He said the start of the Kameng Hydropower station will change the development dynamics of the state.
