Construction of Nepal's 101-MW Tamor-Mewa hydropower plant to begin in November

Nepal Map

Renewable energy developer Spark Hydro Power is set to begin construction of the 101-MW Tamor-Mewa hydropower project in November.

The US$186 million run-of-river project will be located in Nepal's eastern Tapeljung District, with a connection to the country's central grid coming via a new substation in Fungling.

The bulk of the funding for the project is expected to come from Nepalese and European investors, though the developers said a 10% share has been set aside of locals.

HydroWorld.com reported in 2008 that the Tamor-Mewa (also spelled "Tamur-Mewa") was one of a number of hydropower projects being developed within Nepal.
