Electricity rekindles in all townships of Rakhine State

The Ministry of Electric Power is making an all-out effort for the restoration of damaged power lines and substations in Northern Rakhine State due to Cyclone Mocha. Thus, the power distribution in urban neighbourhoods and some villages in Sittway, Ponnagyun, Kyauktaw, MraukU, Minbya, Myebon, Rathedaung, and Pauktaw Townships was completed on 7, 18, and 23 June and 5 July.
To supply electric power to the rest of the towns and villages, the 66 kV Rathedaung-Buthidaung power line repair work has been fully completed. The power has been restored from the power system for 5,273 users in seven wards and 24 villages in Buthidaung Township with 75 11/0.4 kV transformers from four 11 kV feeders at the 66/11 kV, 5 MVA Buthidaung Substation at 11:23 am, and for 6,474 users in 12 wards and 24 villages with 81 11/0.4 kV transformers from four 11 kV feeders at the 66/11 kV, 5 MVA Maungtaw Substation at 11:45 am yesterday.
The national grid has now been able to redistribute power to all townships in Rakhine State since power has been restored to 10 townships in Rakhine State (North) where power lines, substations, and related equipment were damaged due to Cyclone Mocha. — MNA/CT
