Chairman of State Administration Council Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing Inspects Yeywa Hydropower Project

The Chairman of the State Administration Council (SAC) Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing accompanied by officials inspected Yeywa Hydropower Project in Kyaukse District of Mandalay region on 24 January.

After the Chairman of the SAC Prime Minister heard the reports on the conditions and functions of Yeywa and Deedok hydropower projects presented by Union Minister for Electricity and Energy, he stressed the following points:

  • The implementation of upper and middle Yeywa hydropower project will continue. Likewise, the implementation of Deedok hydropower project must also continue.
  • Generating electricity with the use of LNG is very expensive. Priority must be given for generating renewable energy such as hydropower and solar power.
  • Electricity is essential for the national development.  The government has to use a lot of financial power and time for power projects.
  • Although the implementation of hydropower is based on larger investment and expenditure should be calculated, its benefit can be valuable.
  • The price of units Yeywa has been producing since its commissioning has already passed its cost. Moreover, the project has been supporting the socio-economy of the people and national development a lot. So, its benefits are immeasurable.
  • National development needs electricity and it is required to reduce the unnecessary power consumption. Moreover, LED lights may be the answer for saving electricity. Utmost efforts should be made to increase power generation and reduce power consumption.

The Chairman of the SAC Prime Minister inspected the generating electricity and the inflow of water to Yeywa Dam, and presented cash awards for staff.
