According to the bank document, the proposed project is designed as a run-of-river scheme with diurnal storage on the Kopili river at Longku and will generate 120 MW power comprising the Main Power house(MPH) with 2 units of 55 MW each and an auxiliary Power house (APH) with 10 MW capacity (with 10%continuous overload) to be located at the dam toe. The dam will be designed as a concrete gravity dam, of height 70.13 m and width 345.05m. The scheme has been planned to run at full potential in the monsoon season and operate as a peaking station in the non-monsoon season,for at least 3 hours a day (with reservoir storage occurring for 21 hours/day, with no tailrace discharge). The proposed project will be the final stage of development of the Kopili river valley and along with the existing upstream hydropower plants, it is expected to fully harness the hydropower potential of the Kopili river.
