The other hydro project of NEEPCO currently under execution by BHEL is the 4x150 MW Kameng HEP in Arunachal Pradesh. Some of the major hydro projects commissioned for NEEPCO by BHEL are the Rangandi HEP in Arunachal Pradesh and Kopili HEP in Assam. 
 
In the north eastern states, BHEL has installed around 3,100 MW of power generating capacity, accounting for more than 75 percent of the total installed capacity in the region including 726 MW gas-based Palatana power project in Tripura.
