This Detailed Project Report has been prepared by Mott MacDonald to present the development of the proposed Luhri hydroelectric project on the Satluj River. The project lies downstream of the proposed Rampur hydroelectric project and upstream of the Koldam project which is currently under construction.

In many occasions severe water leakage problems are faced in shotcrete lined or unlined water tunnels that not only reduce stability of the rock mass but also result in loss of valuable water in conveying tunnel systems. Such leakage causes safety risks and increases the potential for huge economic loss to the hydropower projects.
