Are you developing hydropower/water resources projects in steep sediment-loaded Himalayan Rivers? If yes, feel free to contact us. We can assist you in preventing from investment failure by carrying out physical hydraulic model studies.

Hydro Lab is the only research organisation in Nepal having experience and expertise in physical hydraulic model studies.

Hydro Lab welcomes developers, engineers, researchers, bankers and investors to visit the lab. Our past and on going works are ready for demonstration.

Hydro Lab has expertise in sediment studies, hydro turbine efficiency measurement and hydrometry.




Professor Dagfinn K. Lysne

Tribute to Late Professor Dagfinn K. Lysne

Dagfin K. Lysne was born in Laerdal in mid-Norway in 1934. He obtained his Bachelors Degree at the University of Colorado in 1959 and Masters Degree in 1962 at the same university. He worked for three years in the USA before returning to Norway in 1963. He took up employment at the River and Harbour Laboratory of the Norwegian Institute of Technology (NTH). His professional research on shear stress in turbulent flow has awarded with Licenciate at NTH in 1970.

His contribution to Nepal is noteworthy in the field of Hydropower Development. In this Himalayan mountain land he realized the needs, challenges and possibilities for hydropower development that attracted his interest and effort. Together with students and colleagues at NTH and SINTEF he established a hydraulic research laboratory, named Hydro Lab, in Nepal. He founded it to study the special problems that hydropower engineers have been facing in sediment-loaded Himalayan rivers. Hydro Lab has been growing on the same foundation. His vision was that of unhindered renewable hydropower bringing light and energy to the towns and villages for the prosperity of Nepalese. He was untiringly devoted to this work with great energy and enthusiasm despite being advised to have more rest and less work for his health reason. Unfortunately, he was less able to think of himself than for others; there was simply too much to be done.

We will always remember Professor Lysne with gratitude and respect. He has been a source of inspiration to us.
