Nepal Pushes Out Indian Firm From Hydropower Project Near Tibetan Border


The Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA), the state-owned power utility of Nepal, has asked an Indian firm to stop working on the 456 MW Upper Tamakoshi Hydropower Project due to its slow progress.  It has asked the Indian contractor to outsource its remaining tasks to another firm – reportedly Andritz Hydro of Australia.

“During a meeting held last week among the Upper Tamakoshi project officials, Andritz Hydro and Texmaco representatives, there was a verbal agreement reached to transfer the remaining work which will be followed by a written agreement soon,” Ganesh Raj Neupane, a spokesperson for the Upper Tamakoshi Project, said to local media.

In April this year, Nepalese Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli had expressed strong reservations due to delays in the project and instructed the project officials to complete the national project within the given deadline. Read More
