1.1 PROJECT OVERVIEW AND PROJECT NEED
The development of the proposed 135 MW Kyaukphyu Combined Cycle Power Plant (CCPP) is located in Kyaukphyu, a major township in Rakhine State, Myanmar and is a major infrastructure project in Kyauk Phyu City that is vital to people’s livelihood and affects industrial development. The implementation of the project will have a positive impact on the development of Kyauk Phyu Special Economic Zone. The development of Kyauk Phyu Special Economic Zone is in line with Myanmar’s national interest in revitalizing the western economy and resonates with China’s “the Belt and Road Initiative”. In order to adapt to the economic development in Kyauk Phyu of Myanmar, optimize the power supply structure, and ensure the reliability and safety of power supply in the district, it is proposed to build a gas-turbine power plant in Kyauk Phyu district of Myanmar. The Project involves the construction and operation of a 135 MW of Power Plant.
In line with the economic development goal of Myanmar, the CCPP Project aims to:
• optimize the electric power supply infrastructure;
• guarantee the diversity of the power supply in Kyaukphyu District;
• improve the energy infrastructure of Myanmar, particularly the power supply reliability of Kyaukphyu regional electric grid; and
• Greatly improve the reliability, safety and environmental friendliness of power supply in the region.
Once the Project becomes operational, it will satisfy the electric power demand growth of Kyaukphyu, which accommodates the largest load centre of the whole Kyaukphyu District.
