Sopore : Sanctorum College of Education Sopore in its efforts to channelize the young minds on tuesday organised a study tour for B.Ed students to NHPC URI I and NHPC Uri II.
The trip was flagged off early tuesday from Sanctorum Institute Sopore, in which 40 B.ED students from various villages of north kashmir along with three teachers accompained them in day long tour.
During the day long tour the students visited Uri Dam, A Dam which is 480 MW hydroelectric power station on the Jhelum River near Uri north kashmir’s Baramulla District. The station is largely built under a hill with a 10 km tunnel. It is of the run-of-the-river type without a large dam, since the Indus Waters Treaty gives Pakistan the exclusive right to regulate the Jhelum River.On 4 July 2014 a 240 MW Uri-II power project was inaugurated.The project was awarded by the National Hydroelectric Power Corporation in October 1989 to a European consortium called Uri Civil led by Swedish Skanska and including Swedish NCC and ABB and British Kvaerner Boving. It was partially funded by the Swedish and British governments.
