Although Myanmar is experiencing remarkable economic growth, the development of critical infrastructures including facilities for power supply to rural areas is one of the important issues of the government of Myanmar.
The consulting services contracted this time are to dispatch engineers to the sites in Myanmar for about three years in order to design for expansion of substations and distribution lines, to make bidding documents, to review bidding, to support contract negotiation and to supervise construction works. This is the project following National Electrification Plan (NEP) to achieve 100% electrification by 2030.
In this project, we contribute to the further development of Myanmar to improve the power supply by using the experience, knowhow and advanced technical capabilities.
