Nepal’s NEA commissions 220 kV Trishuli–Kathmandu line

State-owned electric utility Nepal Electricity Authority has commissioned the 45 km long 220 kV Trishuli–Kathmandu transmission line. Of the total length, 1.3 km has been constructed underground. The transmission line will evacuate power from the 37 MW Upper Trishuli-3A hydroelectric project. The transmission line will also connect the electricity generated in Nuwakot and Rasuwa districts to the national grid. Meanwhile, the connection of the Rasuwagadhi, Sanjen, Trishuli-3B and other small- and medium-scale hydropower projects to the national grid via the Trishuli–Kathmandu transmission line is under consideration.
