MYANMA Alinyaung Co Ltd yesterday opened its gas and biomass power plant in Mawlamyine, Mon State.
President U Thein Sein was present at the opening ceremony together with Union Election Commission Chairman U Tin Aye and Union Ministers Lt-Gen Kyaw Swe, U Nyan Tun Aung, U Khin Maung Soe, U Maung Myint, U Kyaw Lwin, U Aye Myint and U Ye Htut.
The newly-opened power plant has the capacity to generate 230 megawatts of electricity, with Union Minister U Khin Maung Soe saying that the facility is intended to satisfy the country’s growing electricity demand.
The country is experiencing a 15% increase in demand for electric power consumption each year on average.
In 2011, there were ten gas-fueled power plants making up a combined generation of 270 megawatts.
The number of power plants has increased to 20 in 2016, with 1,210 megawatts in total.
After inspecting the control room at the power plant, the president and his entourage watched an entertaining documentary about the plant.
