Middle Marsyangdi Hydropower Back at Full Capacity (70 MW)


LAMJUNG, June 10: Power production from the Middle Marsyangdi Hydropower Station in Lamjung has been restored to full capacity. The present power generation is 70 megawatts.

The production of electricity from the project had dropped during the winter due to lower water level in the river.  However, with sufficient water flow now, the hydropower station has returned to full-fledged production. THe production had dropped to 24 MW in December but began increasing in mid-March, finally reaching full capacity three days ago.

The project is supported by two turbines, each with a capacity of 35 MW for production. Completed in 2008 at a cost of Rs 27 billion 200 million, this serves as the first electricity project in the district.
