The history of our presence in Nepal

Around 1911 A.D., Nepal built its first hydropower plant and at that time Nepal was the second country in Asia after Japan to have a hydropower plant. Fast forward to today’s date, Nepal is generating around 1,200 MW from its hydropower plants. Nepal has huge hydropower potential of over 83,000 MW out of which over 43,000 MW are economically and technically feasible.

From the initial times, Tractebel has been involved in hydropower development of Nepal. Tractebel executed design, construction supervision and installation of one of the first major hydropower projects in Nepal - Lower Marsyangdi HEP (69 MW) which was commissioned in 1989.

From last 40 years, Tractebel has been continuously providing engineering consultancy services for development of hydropower, water resources, transmission and distribution projects in Nepal. As the country also focuses on development of storage type hydropower projects, Tractebel has joined hands with Nepal, providing services in development of Nepal’s two major storage projects: Tanahu HEP (140 MW) and Budhi Gandaki HEP (1,200 MW).
