Yangon  Dala Township, an underdeveloped quarter of the city located across the Yangon River, is to receive the distribution of 1.2MW of electricity this 2016-17 fiscal year, the township’s office of electrical engineers has told Myitmakha News Agency.
The expansion to the volume of electricity with services the township will include the replacement of over a 140 decaying wood and metal electricity poles with concrete poles, and the installment of six 200 KV A transformers.
Once complete by mid-October this year, Dala Township will be able to receive 1.2MW of electricity.
“Efforts are being made to increase electricity to Dala in a bid to mitigate against declines in electricity availability, and to allow for the utilization of electricity at its full-voltage capacity. We’re also replacing the hazardous wooden electricity poles with concrete substitutes,” said U Aung Kyaw Moe, electricity manager for the township.
“There are certain streets in our ward where the electricity cuts out. We also experience power cuts from the over-usage of electricity during the evenings,” said Ma Moe Lwin Oo, from Dala Township’s Tapinshwehti Ward. The initiative to increase the capacity of electricity in Dala will reportedly be carried out by a total of 60 electrical engineers.
