Chautara, Aug 30: The 10.5 MW Sunkoshi Power (hydel) Centre in Sindhupalchowk district which was shut down following the damages by flood-fed Bhotekoshi River has recently started generating electricity.
The Hydel Project generates 3.5-3.7 Mega Watt (MW)of electricity by operating a single turbine, according to the Centre’s Production Chief Suraj Dahal.
The Centre, until recently, had been generating 2.5 MW of power. Additional power generation is likely as the two other turbines were under maintenance, shared Production Chief Dahal.
A flood in Bhotekoshi River on July 5 had caused severe damages to the Centre. The power production of the Centre was adversely affected following the disaster. RSS
