Nepal’s NEA commissions 132 kV line project

State-owned Nepal Electricity Authority has commissioned the 132 kV Blanch-Attariya transmission line project, which has connected the hilly areas in the far western region of Nepal to the national grid. The 131 km long line will initially be used to evacuate energy generated by the 30 MW Chameliya hydropower project, and later, from other hydropower plants. Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power Company Limited has executed the transmission line project with financial aid from the South Korean government. The project will be crucial for evacuating more than 200 MW of electricity that is generated by different hydropower plants in various river basins in this part of the country.
