APR Energy power plant now generating power in Myanmar
APR Energy's 100 MW power generation plant in Myanmar is now fully operational
APR Energy's 100 MW power generation plant in Myanmar is now fully operational. Based in Kyaukse, in the Mandalay Region, the plant provides the Myanmar Electric Power Enterprise (MEPE) with a guaranteed minimum of 82 MW of power generation and will enable the provision of electricity and power to more than six million people.
This represents an investment by an American company in the infrastructure of Myanmar, and APR Energy will contribute to the economic and social progress of Myanmar by employing local people and supporting community development programs.
The contract for the power plant, which was signed in February 2014, was the first agreement between a U.S. company and the government of Myanmar for power generation since the lifting of sanctions.
Fueled by Myanmar's indigenous natural gas resources, the plant features 68 of the newest generation CAT low-emission mobile gas power modules (GPMs) and will offer one of the cleanest power generation solutions in Myanmar.
