LAMJUNG: Monsoon induced flood has rendered damage to the under-construction Rudi Khola ‘A’ hydropower project in Lamjung district.

According to Deputy Project Manager Saroj Bhattarai, the flood has ravaged structures and road whose construction was recently concluded.

“Floods and landslide have completely destroyed penstock pipe which now must be replaced,” Bhattarai said, “ With the onset of monsoon, we are facing hassles in construction and supply of materials.”

The electricity generated by the project with an installed capacity of 8.8 megawatts was expected to be transmitted to the national grid in September.
