Over a four-year period, MOEE will deliver 3,600 MW of new capacity
MOEE has committed to deliver another 3,600 MW of power over the next four years, Deputy Minister Dr Tun Naing told Parliament on Monday. It is announced after a MOEE survey showed that Myanmar's power usage is projected to be 5,774 MW from 3,189 MW in 2017-18 to 2021-22.
According to the survey, between 2010 and 2017 the annual increase in energy consumption averaged 16 per cent. In order to reach this goal, around 500 new transfer cables and transformer stations will be installed throughout the state. This includes the generation of energy from several plans to be concluded in 2018-19, such as the 4 MW Yarzagyo hydropower station, the 40 MW Minbu- 118.
There are 9 MW Thaton combined cycle facility, 106 MW Thaketa combined cycle facility and 225 MW Myingyan combined cycle facility. A further ten different phases of the construction of a further ten hydropower station complexes will be finished between 2019-2020 and 2021-22 in order to produce a further 3,117 MW of electricity. These include combined cycle and hydroelectric facilities in Kengtawng, Upper Yeywa, Kyaukphyu, Kanbauk, Ywama, Patolon, Myanaung, Thilawa and Mee Luang Chiang.
MOEE has also modernized its 20-year-old facilities to provide a uninterruptible, uninterrupted and sufficient electrical current source to make sure they can operate under full load for the next four years, Dr Tun Naing said. In the longer run, Myanmar is striving for a comprehensive energy system by 2030 as part of its National Electrification Plan.
In order to reach this goal, it will also begin with the buying strength of its neighbors. The MOEE would subscribe a M. O. U. for the procurement of energy from Laos, according to reports in regional newspapers last weekend. The U Min Min Min Oo Deputy Secretary's Office informed Eleven Medias that an overall settlement had been reached and that the two nations would soon be meeting to clarify the issues before the signature.
Burma is also discussing the acquisition of Chinese and Indian energy and is carrying out research on possible cross-border matters, contractual conditions and energy transmission technologies. It must consider the possibility of purchasing energy from its neighbors, as there are widespread protests against the use of energy from its neighborhood.
Meanwhile, electricity generation from small hydropower and photovoltaic plants is no longer sufficient to cover the country's needs. While Myanmar is producing methane, gas-fired generation is a long-term operation that also requires significant investment in manufacturing infrastructures. "We' re currently in talks and negotiation about the prices at which we can get electricity from our neighbors.
It also said that in the coming years current hydro and other renewables will be a top of the agenda in the Philippines and that Myanmar is active "on the hunt for electricity" to satisfy increasing demands. Myanmar's electric utilities are subsidising a lot. Estimates suggest that the federal administration has collected more than $300 million in lost revenue from the sale of electric goods to people.
