Sihanoukville, Cambodia's only deep-sea port, is a fast-growing city with major ongoing developments to (i) expand the port facilities, (ii) upgrade the airport, and (iii) set up an export processing zone, thus making Sihanoukville an import gateway to the southern economic corridor. No power transmission grid connects Sihanoukville to the national grid. The city gets its power from a small, isolated power system based on diesel generators. This mode of power generation is expensive, inefficient, as it does not achieve economies of scale, and cannot meet the demand. The Project will complement previous investments in the transmission and distribution facilities. It will (i) extend the 230 kilovolt (kV) transmission line from Kampot to Sihanoukville, (ii) build associated substations and bulk supply distribution facilities, and (iii) carry out institutional development and capacity building for Electricit du Cambodge (EDC).
