Kathmandu, March 9
The managing director of Nepal Electricity Authority, Kul Man Ghising, has urged the contractors of the under-construction Chilime-Trishuli 200 kV transmission line to expedite their work so that the project will be complete on time.
Accompanied by other officials of the authority, Ghising recently visited the line’s construction site in Pahirebeshi, Kispang rural municipality-5 of Nuwakot and discussed the project’s progress and challenges with consultants, contractors, and other stakeholders. The transmission line will connect three under-construction hydropower projects–Rasuwagadhi, Sanjen, and Upper Sanjen–to the national grid. The three projects are scheduled to be completed by mid-July this year.
“No one has any liberty of delaying the construction on any pretext. Please expedite your work,” Ghising said, “Otherwise, just give up and leave. We will provide the utmost support from our side, but you will have to be responsible for the result of any delay.”
After Ghising’s warning, the contractors have agreed to increase the number of workers in the construction of both the transmission line and a substation along the line.
