Site Engineer Shujat Ali and operator Mr. Ramzan Ali introduced the students about the basics of power generation at the Biaras Power Project, This project has two turbine each with power generation capacity of 750kW. It was interesting to know that this is the only power project which run tirelessly throughout the year, even in -40oC since November 2017 and serving the people of Drass. The enthusiastic students seeing upon the project were overwhelmed and asked various questions pertaining to the working about turbines and different machinery involved.
On the way back to Kargil students were taken to Latoo village to see the water uplifting project commissioned by KREDA. Engineer Sajad Hussain, the expert at Latoo area guided the students in knowing the basics of water upliftment. The importance of the project to the village were discussed in detail with experts and elders of the village. This project fulfills the water needs for irrigation and household purposes.
