Indian government-owned Power Grid Corporation of India (PGCI) is in talks with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) for participating in rural electrification and power distribution projects in Myanmar, said the country's Khin San Yee, Deputy Minister for Planning and Economic Development. IFC, which has been in talks with the government of Myanmar, wants Power Grid to work with it on the projects in a country where electricity demand has been growing at a rate of 12 per cent.
PGCI has been in discussions with IFC from some time back. IFC, in turn, has been in discussions with the Myanmar government for rural electrification and power distribution projects. It is in a very nascent stage.
More? than ?70 per cent of Myanmar’s 60 million people live in rural areas, where the average electrification rate is a mere 16 per cent. According to a World Economic Forum (WEF) report, only 26 per cent of the country’s population has access to electricity. Myanmar has an installed generation capacity of 6,300 megawatts (mw) with a low per capita power consumption of 100 units.
The country faces load-shedding of 800 mw, with high losses of 27 per cent due to poor transmission and distribution, apart from theft. Power Grid has a presence in Myanmar and was awarded a $64 million supply contract for a 230 kv transmission line and a sub-station. While these were awarded to the transmission firm based on the line of credit extended by India to Myanmar, Power Grid is pursuing another $100 million contract in the country for transmission links.
