With the new government taking the leadership, Myanmar is embarking on a brand-new journey to prosperity. As Asia’s last frontier of development, Myanmar is in dire need of power to drive its economic growth. Currently, Myanmar only has about 4.5 G installed power capacity, most of which (67%) are from its Hydropower and natural gas (27%) power plants and only 33% of its citizens have access to electricity. According to the government plan, Myanmar needs to build 41 power plants to meet the nation’s spurring power demand.
Mega power plant projects signed recently:
Marubeni Corporation Thanlyin Gas Power Plant: 400 MW, USD 1 Billion
Sembcorp Myingyan Gas Power Plant: 225 MW, USD 300 million
