The power generation in the Mid-Marsyangdi Hydropower Project in Bensishahar Municipality-1 Dalal of Lamjung has started increasing.

Pawan Basnet, head of the center, said that the power generation has started increasing after occasional rains and melting snow have led to rising water levels in the Marsyangdi River.

He informed that only 26-27 MW of electricity had been generated since the onset of January and now 58 to 60 MW of electricity is being generated.

Last year, electricity generation increased only in May. The Mid-Marsyangdi Hydropower Project had been generating 70 MW of electricity.

The center has stated that if the project continues to generate only 25 MW of electricity at any time during winter, it will generate electricity at full capacity within the month of April.

Construction began in 2000 and the project was completed in 2008. The project has been constructed at a total cost of Rs. 27.20 billion.
