Salal power station is a run-of-the-river scheme with a 690 MW installed capacity (Stage-I of 3 x 115 MW & Stage-II of 3 x 115 MW) that utilises the Chenab River's hydropower potential. It is situated in the Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir's Reasi district. The project includes a rockfill dam with a height of 118 metres and a length of 630 metres, as well as a concrete dam with a height of 113 metres and a length of 486.75 metres, as well as six penstocks with a length of 265 metres and a diameter of 5.23 metres each. The 690 MW surface powerhouse houses six 115 MW units, each of which is designed to operate at a rated head of 94.5 m and generate 3082 million units in a 90% dependable year with 95 per cent machine availability.

Stage-I units I, II, and III were commissioned in November 1987, while Stage-II units IV, V, and VI were commissioned in June 1993, March 1994, and February 1995, respectively. Chandigarh, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Jammu & Kashmir, Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttrakhand, and Uttar Pradesh are the states/UTs that will benefit from this power plant.
