The Indrawati III hydropower project, damaged by the floods in Melamchi and Indrawati Rivers, resumed power production after repair since Wednesday.

The 7.5 MW capacity project had received damage from the floods that occurred on June 15.

Four towers of the transmission line were pulled down by the flood in Melamchi River and the powerhouse was dented by the flood in Indrawati River, said project chief Manolak Shrestha. The dam at Tipeni was breached and the electric machine received huge damage.

The project faced a loss of some Rs 25 million. Deputy Plant Manager at the project, Basanta Lal Karna, informed that with the disruption of power production for one and half months, a loss of Rs 55 million was recorded.
