Tama Kosi V

Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) and Citizens Investment Fund have entered a tripartite agreement with Tamakosi Hydropower Company to invest in the 99.8MW Tama Kosi V. They will foot 70% of the Rs16.19 billion cost, the rest will come via public shareholders.

Tama Kosi V is part of the cascade plan of the nearby 456MW Upper Tama Kosi project that will be building dams and sand dredging structures for it. Gates to transport water from the Upper Tama Kosi powerhouse to Tama Kosi V tunnels have already been completed. The project is expected to be completed by 2027, with pre-construction work already underway.
