Kaligandaki Storage

Kaligandaki Storage Hydropower Project (844 MW)

Kaligandaki Storage Hydropower Project is a multipurpose project located in the west central Nepal that will generate hydropower from water stored after constructing a dam of at least 200 m height. The project is located in Syangja, Parbat, Baglung and Gulmi districts of Gandaki Province and Lumbini Province.

Joint venture of SMEC International Pty Ltd. (Australia) and Jade Consult Pvt. Ltd. (Nepal) is carrying out feasibility study and environmental impact assessment of the project. The study will identify the most attractive project development arrangement at the lower reach of Kaligandaki River within the licenced boundary. It will also evaluate the opportunity for multipurpose use of the reservoir water for fishery, irrigation, tourism, navigation and water supply scheme.

Preliminary geological investigation has already begun and we are already in action.
