Myanmar’s 20.54MW Kyunchaung gas power plant project to be completed soon
The 20.54MW gas power plant project in Kyunchaung is going to be finished soon.
As the current running gas turbine has been used for many years, its capacity reduces to only 4MW, said U Myo Thiha, chief engineer of Kyunchaung power plant.
The electricity produced by Kyunchaung gas power plant is supplying to the national grid.
Hong Kong-listed VPower KC1 and CNTIC Vpower YG2 companies are engaged in the generation of electricity, supply and sale. VPower KC1 invested US$18.155 million in the generation of 20.54MW electricity from LNG, and supply and sale of electricity on IPP (BOD) basis at the Kyunchaung power plant in Magway Region.
Furthermore, CNTIC VPower YG2 is to build 350MW LNG power plant at No. 14 plot of Thilawa Port in Thanlyin Township, Yangon Region, bringing in investments of $297.39 million for power generation, supply and sale, according to the data released by the Directorate of Investment and Company Administration.
The Ministry of Electricity and Energy is endeavouring efforts to meet the increasing power demand, and gas power project is one of them. —Ko Zaw, Ko Khant (Translated by Ei Myat Mon).
