Solu Corridor Transmission Line to come into operation within a month

KATHMANDU: The construction of Solu corridor 132 kV double circuit transmission line project has been completed.

The construction of the project was completed on Saturday after the work of erecting towers and connecting wires ended removing obstruction in Maruwa, Katari Municipality-4 of Udayapur demanding diversion of the route of the transmission line.

The length of the transmission line from Mirchaiya in Siraha to Tinla in Solukhumbu via Udayapur and Okhaldhunga is 90 kilometres and the number of towers is 302.

Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) Managing Director Kul Man Ghising said that the transmission line, which had fallen sick due to various problems, would be charged and brought into operation within a month.
“The construction of the transmission line was obstructed by the locals. The work was halted despite an interim order from the court. The construction has been completed thanks to the continuous efforts of the authority and the project staff,” Ghising said.

“After the transmission line is charged, on the one hand, electricity from private sector projects under construction in the area will be connected to the national grid, on the other hand, power supply in the area will be reliable and power leakage will be reduced.”

The construction of 132, 33 and 33, 11 KV substations at Tinla in Solukhumbu has been completed and charged.
