NEA to complete construction of Inaruwa substation
Nepal, Kathmandu: The construction of 220/132/33 kV Inaruwa substation based on 400 kV gas insulated system (GIS) is taking place in full swing.
The substation is being constructed to strengthen the power transmission and distribution system in the country and planned for completion and charging in December 2021. Once completed, the Inaruwa substation will be another major hub for the transmission system supplying electricity east to west.
Most of the civil structures of 400 kV GIS and 220/132/33 kV substations have been completed. Major equipment like transformers and reactor circuit breakers have also been delivered to the site.
“The construction of the Inaruwa Substation has to be completed immediately to provide more power to the industries in the Morang-Sunsari Industrial Corridor and to make the supply reliable and qualitative. We are ready to solve the problems in construction of the substation immediately,” said Kulman Ghising, managing director of Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA).
The electricity generated from the hydropower projects constructed on the Arun and Tamor rivers and their tributaries will be connected to the Inaruwa substation through the Koshi Corridor 220 kV transmission line.
The construction of the Inaruwa-Basantapur-Tumlingtar section of Koshi Corridor has been completed, while the Basantapur-Dhungesanghu section is under construction.
