towers move power from generation point and substation to end users

The Government of the Republic of Myanmar, Ministry of Electric Power (MEPE) as part of its long term economic plan is constructing a dam to generate power near the Chinese Border. This power is to be fed into the national grid via transmission lines to be built from the dam on the Shwe Li River to Mandalay. 

Solargy Power Systems, Its Myanmar Associates, Pacific Electric and associated subcontractors (Companies) are proposing to finance, construct and operate approximately 219 miles (350 Km) of new 500-kV direct current electric transmission system consisting of approximately ten (10) segments between the 1,050 MW hydro power plant on Shwe Li river near China border and, MEIKTILA, near Mandalay substation approximately a distance of 350 kilometres.  The proposed   transmission line is needed to supplement existing transmission lines in order to relieve operating limitations, increase capacity, and improve reliability in the existing electric transmission grid, allowing for the delivery of up to 1,500 megawatts (MW) of additional energy from newly constructed dam at (Hydro Power Plant). Meiktila (Meiktila) substation. The Project includes ground disturbing activities associated with the construction of above-ground, double-circuit transmission lines involving structures, access roads, multi-purpose areas, fly yards, pulling sites as well as associated substations, communication sites, and electrical supply distribution lines. The Project crosses private land and public lands administered by the State Other Governmental agencies, and the state of Mandalay…

The project is estimated at this stage to cost USD $300,000,000 for the standard tower based project. Funding would be on a BOT basis, with the planned use of development infrastructure bond offerings used to fund the project, and the Government requirement to provide a bank guarantee cash backed for USD $125,000,000 and issue the appropriate BOT agreement guaranteeing the repayment of the cost of construction. Solargy will secure funding using the bank guarantee and on receipt of same, for the total project cost, guaranteed not to exceed USD$300,000,000.

Befut afiliate Solargy would propose to retain a main Local partner Pacific Electric and up to four local (Thailand and Myanmar region) EPC subcontractors, each of whom will be responsible for 25 % of the projects. Each contractor would start their particular section at the same time, enabling an efficient construction schedule.
