Flooding Disrupts Power System in Nepal


Flooding Disrupts Power System in Nepal

July 12, 2017

The central power transmission system of Nepal has suffered a disruption because of floods across various parts of the country, informed the Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA).

NEA urged the public not to assume these power cuts as the authority’s move.

The disruption of power generation from a unit of Upper Madi Hydropower Company disconnected 25 MW supply from the central transmission line.

Regardless of the supply from hydropower generation, a 35 MW capacity is to be availed from the national transmission system.

While a total of 300 MW generated by the private sector is available with the national grid, only 265 MW has been available since July 9, 2017.

The Lamki-Attariya 132 KV transmission line was closed for connecting power in Pahalmanpur Sub Station. This can cause power disruption in Mahendranagar, Attariya and few other areas, if the power imported from Tanakpur falls short, NEA added.
