Myanmar’s biggest hydropower plant ready for test run

The construction of Myanmar's biggest hydropower plant, Yeywa, is nearing completion and the test run on one of the turbines of the plant will be launched during next month, the local weekly Voice reported Sunday.

The construction of the dam on the Myitnge River involved a number of Chinese companies on contracts signed with the Myanmar side since 2004.

The project costs over $600 million including $400 million borne by the government and $200 million by China, reports said.

The Yeywa hydropower plant, located 50 kilometers southeast of Mandalay, has an installed capacity of 790 megawatts (mw) and can produce 3.55 billion kilowatt-hours (kwh) per year on completion.
