Electricity is being wasted due to lack of transmission line: Director Ghising


KATHMANDU;- Nepal Electricity Authority Executive Director Kulman Ghising has said that electricity is being wasted due to lack of transmission line.

Director Ghising, who arrived in Nawalpur while inspecting the Hetauda-Bharatpur-Bardaghat 220 kV transmission line project, said that the power consumption could not be increased due to lack of transmission line. “Industrialists are not getting electricity, on the other hand, it is wasted, so it is necessary to build a transmission line soon to increase consumption,” he said. “We are taking initiative for this.

Director Ghising said that the work could not make progress due to various obstacles during the construction of the transmission line. He said that daily electricity was wasted due to the transmission line but the industrialists did not get it.

He said that only 90 megawatts of electricity could be sent from Bharatpur of Chitwan to the west 132 kV single circuit. He said that the industry was demanding a lot of electricity in Valpur, Parasi and Butwal areas but there was a problem due to lack of transmission lines. Director Ghising said that they have to increase the load of electricity from Butwal to Bhairahawa and Nepalgunj.

Stating that the Tamakoshi project is currently generating 2,000 MW but could not go west from Bharatpur due to lack of transmission line, he stressed on the need to increase the use of electric vehicles to increase electricity consumption. Director Ghising said that charging stations are being constructed in different parts of the country to increase the use of petrol as it is cheaper than petrol.

Meanwhile, local stakeholders have expressed concern over the delay in the construction of a substation at Boja Pokhari in Nawalpur and the failure to reach the national transmission line in two villages of the district. On the occasion, Director Ghising expressed his commitment to take initiative and complete the budget as soon as possible.

Chief District Officer Manmaya Pangeni briefed about the progress of Hetauda-Bharatpur-Bardaghat 220 KV transmission line project in Nawalpur area. The transmission line has 193 towers in Nawalpur. He said that 191 towers have already been constructed and two towers could not be constructed in Dumkibas area due to the stay order of the court.

Chief District Officer Pangeni said that he is working to solve the problem of construction of transmission line at the local level. There are 246 towers in the west and 226 towers in the east under the Hetauda-Bharatpur-Bardaghat 220 KV transmission line. It is said that the work of Bharatpur East will be completed by March.
