Yangon Blackouts Announced


Yangon will be on power rotation plan until April 2 as supplies from the Yadanar natural gas pipeline will be temporarily stopped, according to Yangon Electricity Supply Board.

It said Yangon residents may face temporary blackouts as natural gas turbines would not have a supply.

Yangon Region uses about 45 per cent of total electricity and the power consumed increases from 150 to 200 megawatts annually. The Ministry of Electric Power and Energy is planning to install a generator where power is most needed, according to the President’s Office.

Yangon Region’s government is trying to produce an extra 100 megawatts this summer, said Myint Thaung, regional minister for planning and finance, on March 16.

“A special fund from President Htin Kyaw had been received to buy a generator worth Ks30 billion, which can generate 25 megawatts of electricity. We are worried about blackouts in the commercial hub,” he said.
