France to power Myanmar with environmentally friendly electricity from river currents in rurals

France is to provide technical assistance with sourcing an electricity supply from river currents for distribution to rural regions of Myanmar, according to the Sein Lan Ami-Myay Development Organisation.
“The French will provide the technical support for electricity from natural river currents. It won’t damage the environment. It’ll also help fulfill to satisfy electricity demands,” said U Win Myo, chair of the Sein Lan Ami-Myay Development Organisation.
He added, “There is a need for amending government policy towards distribution of electricity. Myanmar is full of potential locations , with work already underway in Bilin township.”
Green Lotus, a French environmental conservation group, has attempted to raise awareness of electricity production from water currents that could potentially supply over a thousand families in Myanmar’s rural regions with electricity.
“We can fulfill Myanmar’s public electricity requirements. We also welcome procedures that do not have negative impact on the environment.
The production of electricity from natural water currents has been successful in France.
A French company will assist with natural hydro-power technology and machinery education,” said Jean Marc, director of Green Lotus.
French technical assistance will employ a system of hydrokinetic turbine farms featuring two Hydro-Quest River machines which will be able to produce electricity – dependent upon the state of river currents – from water depths of 6 and 12 feet, according to the French Technology Company, a producer of natural electricity.
The availability of electricity will fluctuate depending on the seasons, but access to electricity for those rural regions of the country will reportedly support livestock and agricultural activities, together with small-scale rice mill enterprises.—Myitmakha News Agency
