Description

This document provides the project preparatory technical assistance (PPTA) report for the South Asia Subregional Economic Cooperation (SASEC) Power System Expansion Project in Nepal.

The SASEC Power System Expansion Project (Project) is being designed to address urgent needs of the Nepal power system such as chronic power outages and the lack of grid access to electricity. Transmission network strengthening and expansion, in conjunction with current hydropower generation development, is a precondition to reducing load shedding and increasing cross border power trade.
