Chautara,Â 21st January,2015 :Â The Bhotekoshi Power Project (45 MW) that was disrupted for around last six months due to the occurrence of a massive landslide at Jure, Ramche of Sindhupalchowk has started generating power from Wednesday.
The project failed to generate power after the five political parties including CPN (UML), Unified CPN (Maoist), Rastriya Prajatantra Party and Baidhya-led CPN-Maoist created hurdles demanding 35 per cent shares of the project be allotted to the people from the project affected area. However, the Nepali Congress demanded 10 per cent share to people from the project affected area.
The reconstruction was started from December 25 after the company and the political parties agreed providing five per cent shares to the locals.
The project which started trial production since Saturday has formally started production from today. The power generated has been fed to the central transmission line from Wednesday, said Narendra Prajapati, Chief Executive Officer at the Bhotekoshi Power Company Private Limited. The project will produce only 18 MW power as the flow of river water was decreased in the winter.
The project was stopped after the landslide at Jure of Ramche VDC in Sindupalchowk caused damage on five towers. The project invested Rs 80 million for the reconstruction of the towers, said Babin Pradhan, Manager of the power Company.
