PM inaugurates third largest Hetauda substation of 4000KV

Kathmandu, June 14: Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has inaugurated the third largest Hetauda substation of 4000KV capacity. 

Amid the event organized by the Nepal Electricity Authority here on Friday, PM Prachanda inaugurated the 400 KV substation at Hetauda Sub-Metropolitan City of Makwanpur-11, Thanabharyang. 

Nepal’s third largest 400 kV Hetauda substation, based on gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) technology, was completed and brought into operation last Friday. The substation has been constructed to strengthen and expand the country’s electricity transmission and distribution system.

Similarly, the construction of 220 kV and 132/11 kV substations in Thanabharyang from the Nepal-India Electricity Transmission and Trade Project was completed and charged last Friday itself. 

To make the east-west power supply reliable and qualitative within the country and for electricity trade with India, Dhalkebar is the first automatic substation in the country, Inaruwa is the second and Hetauda is the third largest substation in the country.

With the completion of the construction of the Hetauda substation, the infrastructure for supplying about 4,000 megawatts of electricity has been prepared.

After the completion of the Hetauda-Dhalkebar-Inaruwa 400 kV transmission line project, around 4,000 megawatts of electricity can be transmitted east to west from Dhalkebar, so the domestic electricity supply will be strengthened and the electricity trade with India will expand further.

The substation construction was financed by government and NEA investments, along with concessional loans from the World Bank under the Nepal-India Electricity Transmission and Trade Project.

The 400 KV double circuit transmission line to be built from Ratmate, Nuwakot, under MCC Project will be connected Hetauda substation. All the necessary infrastructure have been prepared for the purpose.
