The Ministry of Electric Power, Myanmar (MoEP) is planning to build a hydropower plant on Thanlwin River in Myanmar.
The project involves the construction of a 231m concrete gravity dam with a power generation capacity of 7,000MW.
It includes the construction of a powerhouse, control rooms, a substation, a dam and related infrastructure, the installation of generators, turbines and transformers, and the laying of transmission lines.
On November 10, 2010, Chinese (CSC) Consortium (CSC), Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) and IGE Group of Companies (IGOEC) entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with MoEP for the development of the project on a build-operate-transfer basis.
The CSC consortium is led by the China Three Gorges Corporation (CTGC), and comprises Sinohydro Corporation and China Southern Power Grid Company Ltd.
Snowy Mountains Engineering Corporation (SMEC), a subsidiary of SMEC Holdings Ltd, and Changjiang Institute of Survey, Planning, Design and Research (CISPDR) has been appointed as study consultants.
