View of the Technopark Campus

Technopark is an industrial park in Thiruvananthapuram, India dedicated to electronics, software, and other Information Technology (IT) ventures. It is the first and largest industrial park in India. Launched in 1990, Technopark currently has 3.2 million square feet (310,000 square meters) of built-up space. Technopark is home to over 110 companies, which employ more than 15,000 professionals. They include one CMMI level 5 and PCMM level 5 company, four CMM Level 5, two CMM Level 3 and several ISO 9001 certified companies. Technopark is promoted by the Government of Kerala, with a mandate to promote entrepreneurship and employment in the region. The policy of economic liberalisation initiated by the government of India in 1991 and the rapid growth of the global software industry during the 1990s has substantially contributed to the growth of Technopark. Over 70% of Kerala's IT exports are from Technopark.

The units in Technopark include domestic firms, joint ventures and subsidiaries of foreign companies engaged in a wide variety of activities, which include embedded software development, smart card technology, enterprise resource planning (ERP), process control software design, engineering and computer-aided design software development, IT Enabled Services (ITES), process re-engineering, animation and e-business.

Periyar and the Idukki Arch dam

The Idukki Dam is built on the Periyar River, over the Kuravan and Kurathi Hills in the southern Indian state of Kerala. At 167.68 meters, it is the highest arch dam in India. A hydro-electric power project, the dam was constructed in 1969 with the cooperation of the Canadian Government. The dam has been generating power since 4 October 1975, and provides electricity for use in parts of Kerala and Tamil Nadu.

The Periyar River, one of the few perennial rivers in the state, is also the longest, with a length of 244 km. The river generates the major chunk of electrical power for the state from its many big and small hydroelectric projects.
