Visakapatnam Industrial Water Supply Project



A first-of-its-kind dedicated Industrial Water Sector Project in the State of Andhra Pradesh



Visakhapatnam is an important industrial and port city. There are several mega-infrastructure projects coming up in the near vicinity viz; APSEZ, Jawaharlal Nehuru Pharma City among others. As a consequence, the industrial growth potential in the Visakhapatnam area is expected to be high. A major requirement for this development is availability of reliable source of water supply. Visakhapatnam Industrial Water Supply Project (VIWSCO) is conceived to cater to this felt need.
Visakhapatnam Industrial Water Supply Scheme commissioned in December 2004, supplies 5 TMC (388 Mld) from Yeleru reservoir through 153 km long Yeleru canal and another 5 TMC (388 Mld) from River Godavari through a 56 Km long MS pipeline.  Water to RINL (Vizag Steel Plant) JN Pharma City, NTPC, APSEZ, Brandix and Gangavaram Port and other upcoming industries will be supplied to from this scheme. The supply position would double once the Polavaram Project is completed, 3 to 4 years hence.
