Trishuli River becoming hydropower corridor

NUWAKOT, May 7: Trishuli River is set to become a major hydropower corridor in the country in the next three years if implementation of all the projects goes smoothly.

About a dozen hydropower projects are planned to be implemented along Trishuli River, between Rasuwagadhi of Rasuwa and Galchhi of Nuwakot, by the end of 2016. Upon completion, these projects are estimated to generate a total of 1,500 MW of electricity. Of them, Chilime, Trishuli and Debighat have already started power generation.

Similarly, other projects such as Bhotekoshi, Trishuli-3A and Thrishuli-3B are in the process of generating power.

“Investors are interested to put money in hydropower projects in Nuwakot. We only need to create environment conducive for investment and boost confidence of the investors,” Saran Utsuk Sapkota, president of Nuwakot Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NCCI), said.
