New Power Plant to be Established in Ayeyawady

THE AYEYAWADY Region government plans to build its own power plant capable of producing up to 50 megawatts of electricity with the aim of fulfilling the growing local energy demands in the coming summer.
The current daily consumption of electricity in the region is 97 megawatts. It is estimated that the consumption rate is likely to increase up to 159 megawatts during the hot season, as air conditioners and fans in homes and businesses are used more often.
Negotiations have been made between the Ministry of Electricity and Energy and the regional government to begin the project before summer, according to U Win Htay, Ayeyawady Region Minister for Electricity, Industry and Transportation.
This comes from the latest discussion of the second regular session of the regional parliament, where a query relating to establishment of a new power factory with the use of natural gas from 1.5 mile south of Maubin Township was raised by U Zaw Moe, representative of the Maubin constituency. The Ayeyawady Region currently obtains energy from Lawpita, Yeywa and Paunglaung hydroelectric power projects through Hlaingthaya Power Station.
