AITM News and Events >> Hydropower Engineering Field Visit for B.E. Civil 7 th Semester StudentsConducted

 
As required by the Purbanchal University (PU) course syllabus of “HydropowerEngineering” for Bachelor of Civil Engineering students, a three-day field visit of“Marsyandi”, “Modikhola” and “Lower Modikhola” hydroelectric power plants for B.E.Civil 7 th semester (Batch-2014) students of AITM was conducted from January 31 toFebruary 03, 2018. Total twenty-one students and two faculty/staff members fromAITM accompanied the students in the field visit.

The field visit team visited headworks and powerhouse of “Marsyandi HydropowerStation” in Abukhaireni, Tanahun district (in operation & owned by Nepal ElectricityAuthority) in the morning and reached Kushma, Parbat on the first day. The teamstayed overnight in Kushma. On the second day morning, the team observed thelongest and tallest suspension bridge of Nepal over Kaligandi River, and thentravelled to Dimuwa, and observed components (including tunnel) of “LowerModikhola Hydropower Project” (under construction and owned by Manang TradeLink Pvt. Ltd.). After lunch, the team visited another “Modikhola HydropowerStation” (operational and owned by Nepal Electricity Authority) site and observed itscomponents.

This concluded the educational field visits of the above-mentioned three hydropowerstations in Nepal. The team then moved to Pokhara and stayed overnight there.After a brief sightseeing in Pokhara in the morning, it returned to Kathmandu on thethird day (February 02, 2018). The field visit was indeed very much fruitful for thestudents since they could directly observe various components of the threehydropower stations (both operational and under construction) & strengthen theirtheoretical knowledge gained through classroom lectures & other audio-visualmaterials.
