Production of the Marsyangdi Hydro Power Project based at Abukhairini-6 in Tanahu has gone down with a decrease of water level in the river.
Currently, only 27 megawatt of electricity is being generated from the project out of its capacity of 69 megawatt. The power generation went down as the river recorded a low flow of water, said project manager Tirpeshwor Purbe.
Of three units in the power house, only two are collecting water for power generation, he said. However, the project is supplying power in the peak hour as per its capacity.
Power being generated here is linked to the national transmission line via Balaju of Kathmandu and Bharatpur sub-station. Down in power production of the Marsygandi hydro power project is casting its impact on the national power outage.
