Mr. Wu Wenkai, Minister of Power and Energy of Myanmar, said that in the past 3 years, the Ministry of Power of Myanmar has been increasing power supply at a rate of 12% per year, not only in cities, rural areas, but even some remote areas. The area is already capable of receiving electricity.

Global Times reporters recently returned to Ruibo, Sagaing Province, a city in central Myanmar. Electricity here was not fully guaranteed two years ago, and now with the help of Chinese companies, the entire city is at night. Light up.

In the "Victory Hotel" in the city center, the reporter saw that there were twelve brand-new TVs in the lobby neatly preparing for installation. When the hotel owner Wu Mangman learned that the reporter was from China, he enthusiastically introduced the situation to the reporter: "The hotel has been in business for 4 years, because electricity is now guaranteed, and each room has a TV, refrigerator, and air conditioner. Ruibo used to frequently lose power. , Trip, but now the power is sufficient and stable, I have forgotten the generators that were necessary before. "

Sagai rice is the best in Myanmar. Now that electricity is available, many people are engaged in Rice processing industry. In a rice mill in Ruibo Industrial Park, a large rice mill with a height of ten meters was roaring. The boss Sheng Meng told reporters, "In the past, there was insufficient power, and we could only start the rice mill after 10 pm. Now the power is sufficient and stable. Our rice is now exported to the United States, and the benefits are very good!"

What made Ruibo great changes was the connection project between the North Kachin State of Myanmar and the 230 kV backbone network constructed by State Grid China Power Technology and Equipment Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "CLP Equipment"). This national backbone transmission project in Myanmar includes the construction of two new 230 kV transmission lines with a total length of about 300 kilometers and two 230 kV substations. Completed and put into operation in November 2019, it can meet the electricity demand of 5 million Myanmar households.

In the newly built Ruibo substation of China Power Equipment Corporation, the reporter saw that rows of high-voltage structure supports and electrical equipment were neatly standing. The silver-white structure and wires shone in the sun, and the main transformer issued The deep humming is running smoothly. The 230 kV high-voltage electricity will be converted here to 33 kV low-voltage electricity, and then enter the urban distribution network to provide sufficient and stable power for the entire Ruibo city and surrounding villages.

In the main control room of the substation, technicians from the Ministry of Power and Energy of Myanmar are observing the recorded data. Deputy Chief Nerei told reporters: "The equipment is in good operating condition, the systems are safe and reliable, and very modern. You can check the operating parameters of each device at any time with the mouse. At the same time, you can use the measurement and control cabinet on the computer interface to implement the whole station equipment. Comprehensive operation control of the project. "

Laon, the project owner's representative engineer, is mainly involved in the construction of the Myanmar power transmission and transformation project. He said: "The Ruibo Substation is a high-level modern substation in Myanmar, which completely solves the problem of electricity use for industry, commerce and agriculture in the Ruibo area. Myanmar is working hard to achieve the goal of nationwide electricity supply in 2030 so that every Burmese can use it. Electricity, with the help of Chinese companies, we are more confident. "

Strengthening power cooperation is an important issue for China-Myanmar joint construction of the" Belt and Road "initiative. From Sagaing, Mandalay, Yangon, Kyaukpyu, and Myitkyina, from the north to the south, Chinese builders and Myanmar people can jointly develop electricity.

In recent years, Myanmar's economic development has been accelerating. When interviewing in various places, reporters really felt the local changes. As Myanmar State Minister Daw Aung San Suu Kyi said, Myanmar's economy must develop, and people's livelihood must be improved. The power industry must be developed first. As of December 2019, of the 10.88 million households in Myanmar, a total of 5.45 million households have been powered by the national backbone network, which has provided power to 50% of households nationwide. Currently, Myanmar's electricity demand is growing at a rate of about 15% -19% per year. In the next 20 years, Myanmar's average annual economic growth rate will remain 7% -8%, which is expected to become one of the fastest-growing economies in Asia.
