Deputy Minister for Electricity and Energy Dr. Tun Naing inspected the main storage and distribution unit in Chauk, Magway Region, of the Myanma Oil and Gas Enterprise yesterday, assisting in systematic storage, distribution, minimising loss, and wastage and preventive measures against fire.
The main storage and distribution unit stored diesel from the No. 1 Refinery (Chauk) and the Petrochemical Plant (Thanpayarkan) and distributed 150,000 gallons every month to refilling stations, battalions and regiments, and governmental departments in Kayah State.
The deputy minister also went to Kyaukpadaung, Mandalay Region, and assisted in minimising wastage of electricity by upgrading the transformers in Kyaukpadaung.
He also visited the Concrete Pole Factory of Apex Concrete Co. Ltd. in Paleik, Mandalay Region. Under the National Electrification Project, which is being implemented with a US$310 million loan from the World Bank, villages located in the two-mile area from the 11KV grid would be provided with access to electricity as part of the first step of the NEP.
The second step would target the villages within the five-mile area to get access to electricity by 2030.—Myanmar News Agency
