New 66/33KV 30MVA power substation in commission to mark 50% electrification in Myanmar
A new power substation was opened at Shwe Pan Gon village, Wetlet Township, Shwebo District, Sagaing Region on 10 December to mark the 50-per cent electrification milestone in the country. The 66/33KV 30MVA Shwe Pan Gon power station was opened by Sagaing Region Chief Minister Dr Myint Naing and officials. After the opening ceremony, the officials toured the station.
“Our village mainly focuses on the agricultural sector, like the neighbouring village. Earlier, we could not use agricultural machines and rice mills because we did not have full-time access to electricity. Now, we can use those things because a power station has been constructed,” said U Han Tun, a local villager from Shwe Pan Gon village.
The new Shwe Pan Gon power substation was constructed with K1.919 billion allocated from the Sagaing regional government’s funds for 2018-2019FY. The station will supply electricity to 114 villages in Wetlet Township and 42 villages in Ayadaw Township.
