Yangon Region Chief Minister U Phyo Min Thein officiated opening ceremonies of Phaunggyi electrical substation in Hlegu Township and Aikalaung substation in Taikkyi Township, Yangon Region, held at the substations on 31 January.
The substation projects have been carried out by the Yangon Electricity Supply Corporation.
The ceremony was attended by Yangon Region Chief Minister U Phyo Min Thein, Yangon Region Hluttaw Speaker U Tin Maung Tun, Yangon Region Hluttaw Deputy Speaker U Lin Naing Myint, Yangon Region Minister for Electricity, Industry and Transportation Daw Nilar Kyaw, regional ministers, Amyotha Hluttaw MPs, Pyithu Hluttaw MPs, regional MPs, the Chairperson of the Yangon Electricity Supply Corporation and the residents.
Yangon Region Chief Minister U Phyo Min Thein, Yangon Region Hluttaw Speaker U Tin Maung Tun and Yangon Region Minister for Electricity, Industry and Transportation Daw Nilar Kyaw officially opened the 33/11 kV 5 MVA Phaunggyi substation in Hlegu.
Yangon Region Chief Minister U Phyo Min Thein and his entourage also visited the 33/11 kV 5MVA Aikalaung substation in Taikkyi Township and officially launched the substation. A total of six 33 KV substations have been built with government funding during the 2020-2021 financial year, and the two substations are completed now.
The other four substations are Nyaunghnapin substation in Hmawbi Township, Ngasutaung substation in Hlegu Township, Nyaung Lan substation in Kayan Township and Okpo substation, and they will also be officially opened soon, according to the Yangon Region Chief Minister.
The Chief Minister said that the government is working hard to provide electricity to 55 per cent of the country in 2020-2021, 75 per cent of the country in 2025 and 100 per cent in 2030.
He continued that there was a 33/11kV 10 MVA substation in Phaunggyi in the past, and now an additional 5MVA substation has been built, so the substations will cover 13 villages in the area (850 households). These substations can also provide electricity to the additional transformers installed at the COVID-19 Treatment Centre (Phaunggyi).
The Aikalaung area in Taikkyi Township was previously supplied with electricity from the Tawlati substation that is about 17 miles away from the area, so there was voltage instability and long power outage in that area. After building an additional substation, more than 3,074 households in 40 villages in the area will be able to access stable electricity, said the Chief Minister.
In Taikkyi Township, two 33/11 kV 5MVA substations were built in the 2019-2020FY with the regional government’s funds, and 57 villages have been provided with electricity. In the 2020-2021FY, a 33/11 kV 5MVA substation was built and 47 villages have been provided with electricity, according to the Chief Minister. Yangon Region MP U Tin Shein expressed thanks to all stakeholders for building the substations.
Then, Yangon Region Chief Minister and his entourage officially opened Aikalaung substation in Taikkyi and inspected the substation.—Maung Sein Lwin (Translated by Maung Maung Swe)
