Electricity generation from Neelum Jhelum Hydel Power Station has been restricted to 530 MW due to a decrease in Head Race Tunnel pressure on April 03, 2024. This precautionary measure was taken to observe the fluctuation of pressure behaviour. Generation from the Power Station will gradually increase after analysis and deliberations with the Project Consultants. 

Neelum Jhelum Hydel Power Station remained on full generation of 969 MW from March 28, 2024.

It is important to note that all possible maintenance was carried out during the observation. This maintenance includes cleaning the trash racks installed at the reservoir’s intake gates, flushing all three de-sanders, flushing the pressure gauge installed at the Power House, and inspecting the spiral cases of the generating units.

Neelum Jhelum Hydropower Project has a tunnel system comprising 51.5 Kilometers. It is prudent to observe and monitor such a vast network.

Neelum Jhelum Hydel Power Station has generated 19.829 billion units of electricity since its commissioning in 2018 and 1.54 billion units since the resumption of electricity generation after the rehabilitation of the Tail Race Tunnel in August last year.
