Commissioning of Nepal’s first 400 kV GIS substation

Nepal, Kathmandu: The prestigious contract was awarded to Linxon by Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) in December 2017.

Linxon’s scope was design, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of the high voltage equipment for fifteen 400 kV bays, three 315 MVA transformers and one 80 MVAR reactor, including state-of-the-art control protection and automation system, as well as all associated civil works.

In November 2020, the Dhalkebar substation was energized to full capacity by Linxon. During the inauguration ceremony in February 2021, NEA presented a certificate of commendation to Linxon India Pvt Ltd for the successful completion.

“Together Linxon and NEA managed to overcome the impact of the COVID19 pandemic as well as a range of infrastructural challenges encountered whilst moving heavy weight consignments”, said Dinesh Chadha, Managing Director of Linxon India. “Nevertheless, these challenges helped us to build a strong collaborative working model between Linxon, our vendors and NEA, and allowed us to demonstrate our tremendous sense of grit and resilience”.
