Power plant tender winner to be announced next week

The Ministry of Electricity and Energy will announce the winners of a tender to build a 300-megawatt power plant in Yangon next week, ministry officials said.

The tender was issued in July for a five-year contract to supply 300MW of power to Yangon each day – the government’s first tender after taking office in April.

Of the six tender applications only three were in compliance with the requirements, according to government officials.

One is from a consortium of China ITS, China Energy Engineering Corporation, Hunan Electric Power Design Institute, China Construction Eighth Engineering Division, Guangzhou Diesel Factory, and Khin Maung Nyunt Trading.

The second consortium consists of local firms National Infrastructure Holdings, and MCM Pacific, and US companies APR Energy and Ace Resources Group.

The third application came from Karpowership Asia Company.

U Soe Myint, deputy permanent secretary of the Ministry of Electricity and Energy’s office, told The Myanmar Times that the winner would be announced next week.

Demand for electricity from Myanmar’s largest city is rising fast – from 1050MW in 2015 to 1250MW in 2016 according to Yangon Electricity Supply Corporation.

The government is hoping that the new plant will help prevent frequent power outages.
