Middle Kalgandaki HEP (66.3 MW)

Middle Kaligandaki Hydroelectric Project (MKHEP) is located in Myagdi district of the Gandaki Province of Nepal. The project components of MKHEP are located in Annapurna Rural Municipality. The project lies between the project boundary of 83° 38′ 00” E to 83° 40′ 00” E and 28°28′ 56” N to 28°31′ 32” N. Both the headworks and powerhouse components are located in Annapurna Rural Municipality.   The project is of run-off river type. The power generating flow is diverted by constructing a free-flow sloping glacis-type concrete gravity weir with the gated dam located just downstream of the tailrace of Tatopani Small Hydro Project near village Suke Bagar and the flow is guided to the underground powerhouse through about 4883m long waterway comprising approach canal, settling basin, power culvert, headrace tunnel, vertical drop-shaft and horizontal penstock pipe.
