No load-shedding even Mid-Marshyangdi halts power production
Maintenance work of the 70 MW Middle-Marshyangdi hydropower project is going on by halting power production. Yet the people in Kathmandu and elsewhere have not faced the problem of power outage, which proved the managing mettle of Kul Man Singh. Media reports suggest that more than 400 workers are working round the clock in three shifts in two separate units of the hydro-project. Power generation from the project has been halted from last Thursday night to carry out the repair works on the dam and its wall. Managing Director of Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) Kulman Ghising said that there was no need to cut power even though generation from a 70 MW power plant has been halted. The NEA is managing to supply power by operating the Kulekhani hydropower project. There are two units, each having the capacity of 35 mw in the Middle- Marshyangdi.
