The project will construct two 230-kilovolt (kV) transmission lines (of about 300 kilometers) with five 230 kV substations, 48 medium-voltage substations, and 843 kilometers of distribution lines in various states and regions in Myanmar. The project will install, for the first time, computerized systems to improve operational efficiency and reduce losses in the transmission and distribution systems. Such computerized systems will be introduced as a first step toward digitizing power system management in Myanmar.  The project will help increase the electricity supply in support of inclusive and sustainable development and achieve the country’s target of universal electricity access by 2030.
