India and Bhutan planning hydro projects

India and Bhutan are preparing plans for several Bhutan hydro projects that could begin construction in 2012.

The leaders of India and Bhutan signed agreements to prepare detailed project reports for four projects, ranging from 486 MW to 1800 MW in capacity.

Power generated by the projects could be used in Bhutan, with surplus exported to India.

King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck of Bhutan and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh met recently and signed a number of agreements, including the ones related to the development of four new hydro projects, Indian media outlets reported.
