Solar power coming to Myanmar

OK Myanmar Co. Ltd. will commence employing power energy in the near future. The plan is mainly intended to provide service to microwave communication towers and remote areas in Burma with no electricity. “This solar power plan is mainly for microwave communication towers, river water pumping stations and street lamps,” added a company engineer.

The service is to utilize Japanese manufactured Sanyo photovoltaic equipment and employ Japanese technical experts. The solar energy project is intended to generate from 10 to 20 megawatts of electricity annually and comes with a 20 year guarantee. However, the cost of the service has yet to be fixed, stipulated a company employee.

OK Myanmar Co. was established in 1992 and conducts an export-import business supplying electrical equipment to government projects. They operate Daewoo and Sanyo showrooms in Rangoon, Nyapyitaw and Mandalay.

The company will showcase Sanyo solar energy products at the second annual ‘547 Trade Fair’ to be held in Rangoon from the 10th to 14th of next month.
