The Upper Trishuli 3A is a medium sized run of river project which has good road access,high amount of dry season flow and river gradient. It also has good project geology and has relatively good infrastructure for construction. This scheme which is close to the major load center is attractive from technical, economic and environmental point of view. This scheme is envisaged to generate nearly 460.4 GWh of average energy per year out of which 46% is dry season energy. The project economic evaluation indicates that specific energy cost is about 3.03 cents per kWh. The construction work is targeted to be completed by 2014 May. Construction of Upper Trishuli 3A will also enable tailrace development of Upper Trishuli 3B which has a capacity of 37 MW. The co-operation from all the sectors is essential to make this attractive project a role model in hydropower development.
The project cost estimate is about 125.78 Million US$ which excludes VAT and interest during construction. Based on the Contract cost, the breakdown is as follows
|Civil, Electro-Mechanical & Hydro Mechanical works||89.18|
|Environmental Impact Mitigation||2.0|
This project is being implemented with funds from Nepal government, NEA and concessional loan from China Exim Bank. The 115.7 Million US $ concessional loan from the bank is made available at an interest rate of 1.75% per annum payable over 25 years period including 5 year grace period.
