Electricity generation has been halted at Chilime Hydropower as equipment replacement work has started. The 22-megawatt Chilime Hydropower Station has stopped generating electricity to replace the old equipment with new as it is outdated. The work to change the equipment is progressing fast and the target is to complete the connection within four to five days.
As the equipment connected to the 22-megawatt powerhouse is very old, the old equipment has been removed and new equipment has been installed to make the electricity generation easier.
Chilime Hydropower Project started producing electricity from Bhadra 8, 2060 BS. The hydropower was constructed at a cost of Rs 2.64 billion and has 2,826 meters of headrace tunnel.
