Govt to spend US$16 M to generate electricity from trash-fired power plants

Government is planning to buy trash-fired power plants to produce electricity with a loan from Japan, Yangon Mayor Hla Myint said in Yangon region parliament session on Thursday.

The plants will cost US$16 million and government will get an US$8 million loan from Japan. Yangon City Development Council (YCDC) will provide the rest. The incineration plant located near Taw Kyaung Lay cemetery beside Hlawgar Road can only generate enough energy to run itself.

YCDC has chosen Chasson International Korea Co. Ltd. to generate electricity from Htein Pin garbage pit and the joint-ventured company of a local company Zeya & Association and Hondi (Korea) to generate electricity from Dawei Chaung garbage pit among 43 companies who submitted the proposal for the tender offered by YCDC.

The electricity generated from trash-fired power plants is intended to sell to industrial zones. The company [Chasson International Korea Co. Ltd.] has planned to generate electricity at Htein Pin garbage pit with three-year plan. In first-year, the power plant can generate 12 megawatt per hour and in second year, if can produce 10 megawatt per hour. In final phase, it can generate 8 megawatt per hour. Another joint-venture company has planned to generate electricity at Dawei Chaung garbage pit with two-year plan. It is expected to generate 15.4 megawatt per hour. Both projects can be started in early next year.
