The company signed a contract with Sojitz Corporation, the prime contractor of Department of Power Transmission and System Control (DPTSC) of Myanmar, for two new turnkey 500/230kV of Phayargyi and Hlaingtharyar substations located in Yangon area.
These two substations will be a part of Myanmar’s first 500kV backbone grid, which will help stabilize the delivery of electricity from the northern part of Myanmar where most of the electricity is generated to the central area of Yangon.
According to the Yangon Electricity Supply Corporation (YESC), Yangon region with around 4.5 Million population annually needs nearly 1,500MW of power as of 2019 and is expected to need 3,000MW by 2025-2026.
Around 50% of the household in Myanmar still have no access to electricity.
The winning of the project shows the trust of the customer in Siemens well-proven, technical compliant products and solutions.
