Oct 9, 2018-The Kabeli Corridor Transmission Line, called the backbone of the power grid in the eastern region, is finally nearing completion more than 10 years after construction started.
The Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA), the state-owned power utility and owner of the transmission line project, said it would be ready this year. According to the project office, 15 towers are left to be erected and cables have to be strung on a 13-km stretch. The transmission line is 90.2 km long and consists of 263 towers.
Jaguar Overseas and Aster JV, the contractor hired for the execution of the power line project, should have completed it by October 10, but the project office said it would take two more months to finish the remaining work.
