The ADHPL Project is located at village Prini, Tehsil Manali, District Kullu a distance of 60 kms from Bhuntar airport, Kullu. It is 500 km away from Delhi by road. The project utilises water from the Hamtal and Pataori Himalayan streams, which form the Allain river, and from the the Chandar Tal glacier-fed Duhangan river. Water is transferred from separate intakes and underground headrace tunnels into a common intermediate reservoir before being discharged through a steel/concrete lined pressure shaft into the underground powerhouse at Prini village which is located near Manali town. Power is transmitted to the national grid connection point located at Nalagarh via a high voltage 175 KM long 220 KV transmission line built by the company.


The ADHPL is helping to meet the shortage of power in the Northern region of India, presently estimated at some 1500 MW. The plant is operated as a peaking plant from November to May and as a base load plant during the summer and rainy season from June to October. During the peaking season, the plant operates about 4 hours per day.
