Kathmandu. Power generation has stopped at Chilime Power Station due to equipment replacement work. The 22-megawatt Chilime Hydropower Station has stopped generating electricity to replace the new equipment as it is outdated.

According to Manish Bista, head of the center, the work is progressing fast to change the equipment being used and the target is to complete the connection within four or five days and operate it as it is.

As the equipment connected to the 22-megawatt power house, which started production on August 26, 2060 BS, is very old, the old equipment has been removed and new equipment has been installed to make the production work easier, keeping in mind the possible impact, said Bista.

Technicians are working day and night to complete the equipment connection work as soon as possible. The Chilime Hydropower Project, constructed at a cost of Rs 2.64 billion, has 2,826 meters of headrace tunnel.
