An engineering geologist working
in hydropower and transmission line
projects of Nepal

Hello and thank you for stopping by!

My name is Navin Shakya, and I'm a geologist living in Lalitpur, Nepal. I've worked in various hydropower and transmission line projects of Nepal for geological and geotechnical studies during feasibility study, detailed design and construction phase.

Currently, I'm working as an Engineering Geologist at Jade Consult Pvt. Ltd.. I am involved in geological and geotechnical studies/investigations of Jawa Khola Hydropower Project (17 MW), Karuwa Seti Hydropower Project (32 MW) and Barun Khola Hydropower Project (132 MW). Earlier, I worked for Nalgad Hydropower Company Limited (previously Nalsing Gad Hydropower Project Development Committee) which is developing 410 MW Nalsing Gad Storage Hydropower Project in Jajarkot district of mid-western Nepal. I also worked for Angel Engineering Consultancy Pvt. Ltd. (2014-2016) and Hydro Solutions Engineering Consultants Pvt. Ltd. (2011-2014) that are engineering consultants for many ongoing construction of hydroelectric projects . I also worked for Three D Consultants Pvt. Ltd. and East Management and Engineering Services Pvt. Ltd. as a consultant geologist for their various projects.

Over the past few years, I have gained few experience on design of small and medium-sized underground excavation and support system in various geological conditions of Nepal. I have conducted geological and geotechnical investigations for hydropower projects which includes geological and engineering geological surface mapping, rock mass classification, underground stress and deformation analysis, drill core-logging, construction material survey and slope stability analysis. I work using tools like AutoCAD, ArcGIS, Phase2 and Global Mapper.

I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.
