KATHMANDU: Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has brought the 132 Kv Butwal-Lumbini Transmission Line (TL) into operation. The double circuit TL from Yogikuti (Butwal) to Mainhiya was constructed to improve the power distribution system in the Bhairahawa area of ​​the Rupandehi district. According to NEA, the 18-kilometer Butwal-Lumbini TL from the Butwal substation to the Mainhiya substation was operationalized by charging electricity from Wednesday. According to NEA, with the construction of the TL, the infrastructure has been prepared to supply an additional 200 Mw of electricity.

A 132/33/11 Kv substation has been constructed in Mainhiya under the TL infrastructure. The substation has two power transformers of 45 MVA capacity and 33/11 Kv and 16 MVA capacity power transformers. The TL’s project chief Hari Prasad Pandey said that the power supply in Butwal and Bhairahawa areas will be improved as soon as the transmission line comes into operation.
