Manakamana Cable Car Being Converted To Digital At A Cost Of 500 Million

Jul 07, Kathmandu- Manakamana Cable Car, which has been operating from Kurintar in Chitwan to Mankamana Temple in Gorkha for the past two and a half decades, will be converted into digital technology.

After replacing the old technology with the new technology, this service will be operated by software based on the computer system. According to the company, after the new technology is installed in Manakamana, which is the world's number one Austrian company Doppelmayr, repairs can also be done online from Austria.

Nepal's first Mankamana Cable Car is also very popular. The technology connected to it has gradually developed a lot over time and now even the manufacturer company said that it will be a problem to provide its parts in the future, the company said that it is going to upgrade the Cablecar in time based on Doppelmayr's suggestion. The Mankamana Kevalkar service is currently closed due to the commencement of repairs.

As the main motor connected to the current analog technology runs on DC current, the upgraded technology will be digital and innovative. Manakamana said that it is called the D-connect system of Dopplermir and informed that it runs on digital technology and the main motor runs on AC current.

The company said, "Since the old motor, control system, and panel are all based on this system, all the main machinery has to be changed accordingly." Similarly, as the communication cable between the two stations is currently only in accordance with digital technology, it will also have to be changed, the length of which will be approximately 3200 meters.
