The International Centre for Hydropower (ICH), Norway and Hydro lab, Nepal in association with Nepal Tunnelling Association (NTA) proudly invite you to a national workshop titled “Planning and Design of Hydropower Tunnels in Himalayan Geology” to be held in Kathmandu, Nepal. This workshop offers you, within the framework of lectures, laboratory experiments and field excursions, better insight in planning and design of tunnels and other underground structures for hydropower projects and it also oversees mitigation of underground works related problems. Senior professionals involved with hydropower tunnel design will share their experiences through lectures, field visits and laboratory test demonstrations. The knowledge gained from the workshop is expected to be beneficial for the planning and design of tunnels in fragile Himalayan geological terrain.
The main target group is experienced professionals engaged in hydropower tunnel planning, design and operation in the Himalayan region. Candidates should hold at least B.Sc. degree in civil, geotechnical, hydropower or water resources engineering, and engineering geology or have an equivalent background in the fundamental engineering aspects of a hydropower systems. The target group includes former participants on ICH training courses, seminars and conferences, former students of NTNU M.Sc. Programme in Hydropower Development, other personnel from power companies, utilities and government departments. The total number of participants will be about 20.
