Hydropower is electricity generated using the energy of moving water. Rain or melted snow, usually originating in hills and mountains, create streams and rivers that eventually run to the ocean. The energy of that moving water can be
substantial, as anyone who has ever been whitewater rafting comprehends.
A typical hydro plant is a system with three parts: an electric plant where the electricity is produced; a dam that can be opened or closed to control water flow; and a reservoir where water can be stored. The water behind the dam flows through an intake and pushes against blades in a turbine, causing them to turn. The turbine spins a generator to produce electricity.
The world’s first hydroelectric power plant began operating in the United States in Appleton, Wisconsin in 1882. Nepal saw it’s first hydropower station in 1911 A.D. with the establishment of Pharping Hydropower Plant with the capacity of 500 kw.
QAHE as a Supplier of EM-equipment are trying to bridge a gap in energy production by supplying quality products at a reasonable price. Since the establishment of the company in 2005, it has successfully installed the total of 50,210 KW. By the end of 2016, the company will have installed over 100,000 KW, with just under 200,000 KW under installation. Through our humble beginnings in 2005, the company has grown exponentially to emerge as the leading supplier of EM- Equipment in Nepal. QAHE is working around the clock with the developer of Power plants to solve the energy crisis in Nepal. Brick by Brick as QAHE grows, it dreams of brighter, energy Independent Nepal.
