I have been following this thread for a while now brushing up on my
Microhydro knowledge. I must say that I have been very impressed with the
technical nature of discussions. I would have liked my first post to be on
the subject of microhydro, but it's a cry for help.
I am in the middle of a trying to supply a donated wind/solar system to
Nepal. This system is going to be installed at a clinic at the base of Mount
Everest. My problem is that I can not seem to find a way to get the shipment
into Nepal (Kathmandu). From past threads I know that a number of you have
either work, or have done work in Nepal. I was wondering if I could ask for
some assistance in finding out what paper work needs to be put together and
if you know of a shipping company which can handle door to door K.L.
Malaysia to Kathmandu, or Port Calcutta to Kathmandu.
We have a company in Kathmandu which is going to handle the Kathmandu to
Mount Everest part, but we can not seem to find a cost effective way of
Shipping warehouse to warehouse K.L. to Kathmandu. Right now our best
shipping options costs more than half the equipment cost (which may cause
the donator to rethink his donation).
If someone could possibly give us a contact, or information on what paper
work we needs to filled out for a donated system and recommend a shipper
that would be EXTREMELY helpful. We have been trying through regular
channels and our contact in Nepal for 1 month, and now time is getting very
tight. The window for installation is only 2 months (September and October).
I would like to thank all of you in advance for at least reading this email.
