Upper Tamakosi completed
The construction of the Upper Tamakosi Hydropower project in Dolakha district has been completed, and will generate power from 5 July from the first unit. There are six units with 76 MW capacity each.
"If there is no technical problem, we will turn it on the next Monday morning and start generating electricity from the first unit," says NEA Executive Director Hitendra Dev Shakya. The power will be sent to the national grid through the Gongar-Khimti-Dhalkebar 220KVa, which is also being tested.
