The 24 mw project has a tunnel of 2.5 meter diameter, length of 3 km and is situated at Bhilangana Hydro Electric Power Project, Ghuttu, Tehri Garhwal in Uttrakhand.
Steps followed in pump positioning and pipeline layout for BSA 1409D
- Pump has been positioned in reverse direction for more stability.
- Pipeline has been anchored with U clamps and base foundation has been done with steel and concrete.
- Shut off valve was fitted so as to stop the back pressure of concrete and water as the tunnel is inclined in angle from inside and the slope is towards the pump.
- Special concrete block has been prepared to block the thrust of pump to pipeline.

|Shut Off Valve||Pipe line laying was done on the bottom centre of tunnel and it was properly anchored||The slurry feeding and concrete feeding were done in continuation till the concrete comes out at the outlet|
Concrete Mix trials were carried out before and during the pumping of concrete. The slurry feeding and concrete feeding were done in continuation till the concrete comes out at the outlet.
Concrete placing inside the form work was carried out day and night.
