Chinese contractor wins $9M substation contract in Nepal
Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has announced it has selected a Chinese contractor to build a 220 kV substation in Barhabise.
The $8.79 million contract was awarded to a joint venture of Guangxi Transmission and Substation Construction Co and Shenzhen Clou Electronics last December.
“The contract between us will become effective once the joint venture receives an advance payment from the NEA,” said Durga Nanda Badiyar, NEA appointed chief of the substation project. “It will take around one month to complete the process and make the advance payment.”
