Kathmandu, April 22
The under construction Upper Tamakoshi Hydropower Project, which Nepal Electricity Authority considers a game changer project for the country’s energy sector, has aimed at beginning power generation by January 2020.
The Authority’s Managing Director Kul Man Ghising says Nepal will begin selling power to India after then.
Ghising says he has been visiting the 456 megawatt project in Dolakha district almost every month to make sure that everything happens on time.
“This project is not only important for the NEA, but also for the entire country,” Ghising told project staff in Lamabagar of the district last Friday, “There should not be any delay in the project.”
He assured that the NEA leadership was ready to solve any problem the project would face in the future.
NEA officials claim that the project would have already been completed by now if the 2015 earthquake and Indian border blockade had not affected the construction works.
