Nepal Water and Energy Development Company (NWEDC)


OPEC FUND FINANCING: US$13.8 MILLION (PRIVATE SECTOR)


TOTAL PROJECT COST: US$647 MILLION APPROVED: MARCH 2019 CO-FINANCIERS: ADB, AIIB, CDC, FMO, IFC, KDB, K-EXIM, PROPARCO


The OPEC Fund contributed more than US$13 million for the construction of a landmark hydroelectric plant in central Nepal. With eight other lenders, this is one of the largest foreign direct investments in Nepal’s history. NWEDC will build and operate a 216 MW run-of-the-river hydroelectric plant on Trishuli River. Located some 70 km from Nepal’s capital city Kathmandu, the hydropower plant is expected to increase Nepal’s electricity supply by one-third from today’s levels and provide clean, reliable power to nine million of Nepal’s residents.

Two loans were extended by the OPEC Fund in support of this operation for the construction of a 969 MW power plant in the Muzaffarabad district, populated by around 1.5 million people. The project is helping to improve the efficiency of social services – such as schools, healthcare facilities and water supply facilities – as well as encouraging the development of local industries. The new plant will help reduce the cost of energy for newly connected households and farms.
