The theoretical hydropower potential of Nepal has been estimated to be around 83,000 MW, of which 43,000 MW has been identified as techno-economically viable through different-sized projects. Infinity’s Independent Power Producer (IPP) business unit was conceptualized in 2014. Infinity, along with its international partners, has secured licenses and is conducting DPR (Detailed Project Feasibility Report) for multiple hydro power projects out of which the project in bheri basin are Bheri I 270 MW-PROR (Peaking Run of River Project), Bheri II 225 MW-PROR (Peaking Run of River Project), DK Bheri 128 MW-PROR (Peaking Run of River Project).
In collaboration with our foreign principal, Infinity has also successfully completed the construction of two major hydropower projects for the Government of Nepal, namely Chameliya HEP of 30 MW and Upper Trishuli 3A HEP of 60 MW.
Additionally, Infinity has foreseen an opportunity for clean alternative energy in Nepal and is working with its international partners on studying the development of low capacity Wind Power Energy plants in the Upper Mustang region of Nepal, along with developing a local industry with a tie-up for Solar Water Pumping Solutions, Solar Street Lights, and RoofTop Solar backup power. Infinity intends to establish this energy arm with a strategic focus on the latest wind & solar engineering methods ensuring Steady Annual Returns, enhancement of its EPC business, Enhanced Brand Value, and creation of a Sustainable Portfolio.
From the existing 1,123 MW of installed capacity, Nepal’s domestic demand is expected to grow to more than 11,111 by 2030 (assuming a GDP growth rate of 7.2% per annum between 2020-2030). This will require more than USD 20 billion of investment in the generation, transmission, and distribution of infrastructure capabilities. Infinity Holdings intends to become a market leader in IPP Hydro Power projects by co-investing with its international partners in renewable energy power in Nepal.
TRANSMISSION & DISTRIBUTION
Infinity is among the selected players in Nepal with an entire gamut of capabilities that spans the spectrum of Power T&D and Sub-stations. The specialized Power Transmission & Distribution (PT&D) business under Infinity has set benchmarks in capacity, complexity, and execution speed. We offer integrated solutions for a broad spectrum of power transmission and distribution projects through its dedicated business segments.
Substations: The design and construction of all types of power evacuation projects from concept to the commissioning on an EPC basis, with significant focus areas being Air Insulated Substations (AIS) and Gas Insulated Substations (GIS).
Utility Power Distribution: Comprehensive solutions for smart grids, power quality improvement, SCADA systems, and distribution reform projects across the country.
Transmission Lines: Our major contracts are with NEA (power utility under Government of Nepal), involving the turnkey design and construction of transmission lines up to 400 kV level with capabilities that include design, manufacture, supply, constructing, testing, and commissioning of EHV power transmission lines as well as turnkey solutions for the construction of microwave towers.
As far as Infinity is concerned, we have executed the following projects of transmission lines, substations, and distribution in association with different foreign principals under the power utility.
