Shan State invites firms to build small power plants

The Shan State government is inviting businesses to build small power plants of 30 megawatts and below under a BOO (build-operate-own) system for producing and distributing electricity.

Firms are asked to submit registration documents, maps of the proposed plant’s location and project plans to the Ministry of Electric Power, Ministry of Industry and Shan State government in Taunggyi.

It is feared that huge power plants can harm the environment and smaller projects are seen as more sustainable in a region where power supplies are unreliable.

The Second Myanmar Electric Power Convention said hydroelectric generation supplied 74 percent of Myanmar’s electricity last year, with natural gas providing 23 percent and coal 3 percent.

In 2014, 3,970 to 2,919MW came from hydroelectric sources, 931MW from gas turbines and 120MW from coal.
