SrisialamAll the 7 units of Srisailam power house would be restored by the second week of January and the restoration works would be completed much before the deadline set by the Government. A unit of the Srisailam right bank power house has already revived its operations, after a gap of two months.It may be recalled that the power house has not been functioning from October 2 as it was inundated with flood waters.

On 2nd October 2009, SriSailam dam has seen a record inflow which has almost threatened the very existence of the dam. Anticipating trouble, the officials shutdown both the 770 MW power house on the right bank and also the 900 MW underground power house on the left bank of the reservoir on 1st October night itself. All the units submerged in the flood suffered damages.

The AP Power Generation Corporation took up restoration works in the second week of October and had pumped the water out and repaired the damaged parts of the 7 units of the power house. The power house has seven units in all with 110 mw power generation capacity each. On Saturday, APGenco officials headed by its Managing Director K Vijayanand had successfully tested one unit and declared that it was fit to produce power.

Due to the non-functioning of right bank power house there was a shortfall of 14 mu in the power supply.
