Kathmandu, November 26
Nepal Electricity Authority’s managing director Kul Man Ghising has told the contractor of 456-megawatt Upper Tamakoshi Hydropower Project to make sure that the ambitious project gets complete on time. With the completion of the project, the government hopes that Nepal can regularly export electricity in India during the monsoon season.
The authority has set a deadline of mid-July 2020 for the project. However, the authority is doubtful about the contractor’s ability to meet the deadline as some complicated tasks are yet to be performed.
In this context, Ghising, accompanied by Energy Secretary Dinesh Ghimire, recently visited Kolkata and reminded the Indian contractor, Texmaco, about the deadline. The two sides held a high-level meeting on Sunday, according to the authority officials.
During the meeting, the company told the authority that it would expedite the remaining works, but the authority was not satisfied. An official says the authority would evaluate its performance after around three weeks again.
