The next thing planned for Jyamrung is an outlet at the little hydropower plant for connecting necessary tools such as electric drills.
"Ahlsell has donated a soft starter to make sure the voltage doesn't get too high when starting single phase machines, which would blow a fuse. We will also add overvoltage protection along with the soft starter."
Another part of the involvement in Jyamrung involves Holtab employees' visiting the village twice a year - field trips that are open to those who show an interest in the project.
Holtab is now also looking for other places in Nepal where it can put its experience from Jyamrung to good use, even though future projects might not be as comprehensive. The company is looking to cooperate with small, knowledge-intensive companies in Nepal that are also focused on raising living standards in rural areas.
