Lamjung, August 31

It is reported that the 50MW Upper Marsyangdi-A Hydroelectricity Project conducted a second series of successful testing of its embankment for the second time at Bhulbhule of Lamjung yesterday.

According to sources, the construction has reached the final stage. Road construction around the project area too has intensified and is nearing completion.

However, it is likely to take almost four more months for the project to begin power generation, said Bishnu Sedhain of the project.

China’s multinational Sino Company is all set to start generating 25MW power from a turbine from September 30 onwards.

With the project almost in the final stage, the number of workers has been slashed from 1,200 to 250 of late.

After the successful completion of four projects, including the 4.4MW Radhikhola and 5MW Siurikhola Hydro projects, investment-friendly atmosphere has been created in the district.
