Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has constructed a 132/33 KV substation in Lalbandi Municipality-1 Nawalpur of Sarlahi. The substation has been brought into operation from Saturday.
The work of the substation was started in the fiscal year 2074/75. However, it was delayed due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
The substation has two transformers of 132/33 KV, 63 MVA, and 33/11 KV, 16 MVA capacity. Power supply will be provided to Haripur and Malangwa substations of Sarlahi through this substation.
Kulman Ghising, Executive Director of NEA, said that the power supply to Sarlahi would be reliable and technical leakage would be reduced as the substation came into operation.
The contract for the construction of the substation was awarded to Power Tech, India, and Waiba Infratech, a joint venture (JV) of Nepal.
