CHAUTARA, Dec 25: The repair of the damaged transmission line of the Upper Bhotekoshi Hydroelectricity Project has started Thursday.
The 45-megawatt project remained disrupted for the past five months, following damages to its four towers and the repair could not be carried out to the protest of local political parties who demanded 10 per cent project share to the locals.
The repair works got started with an agreement of allocating six per cent shares to the locals, power company General Manager Narendra Prajapati said.
The repair of four damaged towers is expected to complete within the next three weeks. The disruption of project led to an increment in the duration of power outage in the country by two hours, the Nepal Electricity Authority said.
