Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has called on the industries of Bara-Parsa Industrial Corridor to get electricity from 132 KV transmission line. Under the campaign to consume the electricity generated within the country, NEA will supply electricity from 132 KV in the Bara-Parsa Industrial Corridor to the industries that are preparing for operation, opening in the future and demanding more electricity.

Industries in the area are currently getting electricity from 11 and 66 KV lines. If electricity supply is taken from 132 KV, its tariff will be cheaper. The industry will have to build the substation on its own premises. The construction of substation is not expensive as the tariff is cheaper and leakage is less. NEA has started an initiative to build infrastructure in the Bara-Parsa Industrial Corridor to consume 2,000 MW of electricity within five years.

NEA is going to build high capacity power transmission and distribution line infrastructure targeting the industries currently operating and opening in the coming days in Simara, Nijgadh, Birgunj, Parwanipur, Pokhariya, Prasuni and other areas in the Bara-Parsa Industrial Corridor. A high-level team led by NEA Executive Director Kulman Ghising visited the area on Saturday and got information about the possible location for construction of 400 and 132 kV transmission lines and substations, power demand and consumption.

Executive Director Ghising said that the Bara-Parsa area is likely to become a big industrial hub in the coming days, adding that electrical infrastructure with high capacity transmission and distribution lines is being constructed. Ghising mentioned that there is great potential for opening new industries in Birgunj, Pokhariya and dry port areas. "We are building a 2,000 MW power system targeting open industries and the general public in the area. We will strengthen the 11, 66 and 132 kV lines to provide immediate power supply to the industries demanding immediate power," Ghising said.

The process of land acquisition has been taken forward for construction of 400 KV substation in Pokhariya of Parsa and 132 KV substation in Prasani of Bara. Under the Hetauda-Dhalkebar-Inaruwa 400 kV transmission line, 400 kV substation will be constructed in Nijgadh of Bara and the line will be extended to Pokhriya via Birgunj. Ghising mentioned that the Piluwa and Amalekhgunj substations of Bara will be strengthened and upgraded immediately.

In order to make the power supply of industries in Simara and Birgunj region reliable, new towers have been added for the expansion and strengthening of Hetauda-Parwanipur 66 kV double circuit transmission line and old conductors have been removed to keep the capacity. As the capacity of the transmission line will be almost doubled, it will be possible to supply more electricity to the industry. Maximum efforts have been made in the construction of infrastructure and public awareness to provide reliable and quality electricity to the industries.
