In the context of current annual growth in electricity demand in the country, the Company has planned to develop two hydroelectric projects, namely, Sanjen (Upper) Hydroelectric Project (14.8 MW) and Sanjen Hydroelectric Project (42.5 MW) in cascade, with its own equity and loan from financial institutions of Nepal as the first initiative.

Sanjen Hydroelectric Project (SHEP) is located on the Sanjen River in Rasuwa District, Bagmati Zone of the Central Development Region. SHEP is a cascade run-of-river hydropower development that utilizes the water from the tailrace of SUHEP powerhouse. Additionally, SHEP utilizes 0.5 m3/s water from Chhupchhung Khola. SHEP is one of the attractive projects due to its low specific investment costs and its limited environmental impacts. SHEP has major structures viz. forebay, headrace tunnel, underground surge tank, inclined and horizontal pressure shaft, powerhouse and tail race structures. Project utilizes design flow of 11.57 m3/s at 40 percentile flow exceedance of long term available river discharge and 442 m gross head to produce 42.5 MW power and 251.94 GWh gross energy per annum. Generation voltage of 11kV is stepped up at the switchyard by 11/132 kV transformer and 1.1 km 132 kV transsmission line connected at Chilime hub will be constructed for power evacuation.
