R.A Head works, the existing dam of Pallivasal Hydro Electric Scheme often spills during monsoon due to low storage capacity of reservoir. Due to the limitation in the carrying capacity of existing water conductor system, there is no scope for further up gradation of existing scheme, hence for the effective utilization of the available yield for power generation, the Pallivasal Extension Scheme (2X30MW) is proposed.

 The proposed extension scheme envisages the diversion of water from R.A Head Works through a new Intake pool, a new 3.5 m dia. Power Tunnel of length of about 3.5kms, Surge Shaft, Pressure Shaft cum high Pressure tunnel of about 1131m length and 1 No. of Penstock of length 1285m to the new Power House.  The new Power House proposed has an installed capacity of 60MW (2x30MW) and the tail waters collected in the tailrace pool formed by a gravity dam will be directed to the Sengulam Reservoir by gravity.  The new scheme in unison with the existing Pallivasal Scheme will utilize about 79.62% of the total inflow with an average head of 594.11m.  The Pallivasal Extension Scheme with 60MW installed capacity when completed will add 153.9Mu to the state grid.
