Flooding caused problems in power system, NEA says

    326

    The Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has said that some problems have appeared in the central transmission system due to the flooding.

    Saying that electricity generation was disrupted and some problems emerged due to heavy downpour in different parts of the country, the NEA urged the general public not to doubt if there were power cuts from the NEA.

    Power generation from a unit of Upper Madi Hydropower Company has been disrupted, disconnecting 25 megawatt power supply from the National Transmission Line.

    Though there was some progress in the hydroelectricity generation, some 35 megawatt power is still to be availed in the national transmission system.

    A total of 300 megawatt power was linked in the national grid generated by the private sector but only 265 megawatt power is available from Sunday after the flooding.

    The NEA said that Lamki-Attariya 132 KV Transmission Line has been closed for connecting power in Pahalmanpur Sub Station.

    Issuing a press statement today, the NEA said that after the closure of the transmission line chances are high for power disruption in Mahendranagar, Attariya and some other area if the power imported from Tanakpur was shortfall.
