Kathmandu, March 20
The construction of the Mainahiya-Sampatiya 132 kV transmission line deemed important for the Nepal-India energy exchange has gained momentum.
The double-circuit transmission line linking Mainahiya in the Rupandehi district of Nepal with Sampatiya (New Nautanahawa) in the Uttar Pradesh (UP) state of India has achieved 60 per cent progress in construction, according to the Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA).
A target has been set to complete this project within mid-July 2023.
Foundations have been laid for 44 of 96 towers that will be erected across the 28-km transmission line. Similarly, five towers are already put in place.
Meanwhile, a team comprising Energy Secretary Devendra Karki among others recently monitored the project works and instructed for the timely completion of the project.
