No load-shed­ding even Mid-Marshyangdi halts power pro­duc­tion

People's Review - - NEWS - By Our Re­porter

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.
