The construction of the Samundratar-Trishuli 3 ‘B’ Centre 132 Kv transmission line has been completed. Construction of this transmission line is being considered an achievement as the country at the moment is facing shortage of transmission lines.

Even if the hydropower projects in Nepal are able to generate enough power the problem lies in the lack of transmission lines to evacuate that power.

Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on Saturday had inaugurated the project. The 26-km transmission line from the construction site of Trishuli 3 ‘B’ in Kispang Rural Municipality can transmit up to 270 megawatts of electricity.

A total of 60 megawatts of power produced by 10 hydropower projects of the private sector in Tadi Khola and its tributaries can be connected to this transmission line. Of the 26-km length of the transmission line, a length of three kilometres is multi-circuited. Two transformers of 30-MVA capacity with 132/33 Kv capacity has been connected at Samundratar sub-station.

Similarly, two transformers of eight-MVA capacity with 33/11 Kv have also been connected at Samundratar sub-station.

Executive Director of Nepal Electricity Authority, Hitendra Dev Shakya, said the problem of power outage to the east of Nuwakot district will be resolved as power will be supplied there from the sub-station.

The project was constructed through the investment of government of Nepal and concessional loan of Asian Development Bank and European Investment Bank. The total investment of the transmission line and sub-station was Rs 155 billion.

Inaugurating the project, Prime Minister Oli said the government was moving ahead in order to develop a situation to meet the country’s power demand through domestic production.
