Nepal’s Infrastructure are built to sell electricity to India and Bangladesh- Oli
Kathmandu — Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has said that infrastructure has been built to sell power to India and Bangladesh in days ahead.
Inaugurating the country’s largest power substation located at Dhalkebar of Dhanusha district today, PM Oli shared that a serious discussion was underway regarding selling power.
Prime Minister Oli and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had jointly inaugurated the Dalkebar-Mujjafar and Arun III hydropower projects five years ago.
The power substation was constructed at the joint investment of the government of Nepal and Nepal Electricity Authority and a concessional loan of the World Bank. It is of 400, 220, and 132 KV capacity.
The largest among the operational substations in the country, its tests were conducted last month with the additional power of 315 MVA.
The sub-station has been taken as the biggest success in NEA’s history. With this infrastructure, the sub-station has become the biggest center for east-west power supply in the country and trade with India.
After the completion of the construction of 400 KV transmission line from Hetauda to Inaruwa, the capacity to transfer up to 2,000 MW electricity towards Hetauda and up to 2,000 MW towards Inaruwa would be ready.
