Marubeni Corp. has been awarded a gas turbine overhaul for its Ywama Combined Cycle Power Plant in Myanmar by Myanmar Electric Power Enterprise (MEPE).
The parts associated with this overhaul will be supplied by Hitachi Ltd.
Marubeni built the Ywama plant in 2005, and the planned overhaul will improve reliability of the electricity supply and reduce electricity loss by approximately 34,000 kW.
The project is part of an MEPE program to update the country's existing combined cycle power plants, and is the first power project in Myanmar since civilian rule was re-established in March 2011.
Marubeni said its competitiveness and long presence in the Myanmar energy market, together with the superior technologies of Hitachi, helped secure this award.
