POSCO sets up solar power system on Myanmar’s Manaung Island

POSCO International announced it has completed a photovoltaic power generation system on Manaung Island near the Myanmar Gas Field.

Manaung Island is home to more than 60,000 residents, but its power infrastructure is poor with only three small generators, according to the company.

This time, POSCO International set up a solar power system that combines a 500 kW solar power generation facility and 2,000 kWh energy storage system (ESS). The new facilities can stably supply electric power to about 1,000 households on Manaung Island 24 hours a day. The power supply is expected to enhance the operation of sanitation facilities such as public health centers and residents’ productivity in agriculture and fisheries, ultimately making a big improvement to their quality of life, according to a press release.

Daewoo International is also planning to build a 500 MW or larger power plant that can utilize gas imported through Kyaukpyu LNG Import Terminal. It is promoting this project as an independent power producer.
