Rehab work continues at Nepal's Kulekhani 2 hydropower project

Nepal's Kulekhani hydroelectric plant is back in partial operation following a fire in April, sources report.

The fire damaged several transformers in the Kulekahni 2 (also spelled "Kalakhani") powerhouse, forcing the Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) to import power from India while repairs were being made.

NEA officials say the 32-MW Kulekhani 2 is now producing about a third of its overall capacity, but should be back in full operation within the next month.

HydroWorld.com previously reported that production at the project's sister plant, Kulekhani 1, had been decreased due to cable issues.
