Project details:
Rs 27.6bn 400MW Maheshwar Hydro Power Project to be fully commissioned by Dec 2010 under the SPV Shree Maheshwar Hydel Power Corporation Ltd. (SMHPCL). SMHPCL has entered into a 35-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with the Madhya Pradesh Electricity Board (MPEB), after which it is free to sell power on merchant basis. The PPA provides for reimbursement of fixed and variable costs and a guaranteed base return on equity (ROE) of 15.5% for generation up to design energy level (970mn units). The project is expected to generate approximately 50% higher energy levels
considering the water flow from the upstream projects – 1,000MW Indira Sagar and 520MW Omkareshwar. Considering 99% utilization and generation of 1,370mn units p.a., the project can earn approximately 16.3% additional ROE taking the total effective ROE to 31.8%.
