Production of Mid-Marshyangdi Hydropower Station Increases due to Rainfall

April 15: The production of the 70 MW mid-Marsyangdi Hydropower Station located at Besishahar-1 in Lamjung has increased.

Pawan Basnet, head of the station, informed that the power generation started increasing due to the rise in water level in Marsyangdi River following occasional rainfall in recent days and the melting of snow. He said that only 26/27 MW of electricity was being generated since December, but now, the production has reached 58 to 60 MW. In the previous years, electricity generation used to show an increase only in May.

According to the station, if the production shows an increase in the same manner, it will be able to generate electricity at full capacity within April. Construction of the project started in 2000 and completed in 2008. The hydropower station was constructed at a cost of Rs 27.20 billion.
