    The final section of tunnel intended to bring water to the Kulekhani 3 hydroelectric plant's powerhouse has been completed, marking the end of a five-year construction process.

    China's Sinohydro Corporation began construction of the 4,221-meter-long main tunnel in July 2008, alongside four 1,900-meter-long adit tunnels.

    Project officials said the 14-MW plant is about 66% complete overall and should be finished by September of next year, assuming work progresses at the pace it has the past few months. Previously, the work had been slowed by labor disputes and protests from local indigenous groups.

    Kulekhani 3 is one in a string of hydroelectric plants along Nepal's Kulekhani River. Also included are the Kulekhani 1 and Kulekhani 2 plants.
