Installation of 14MW solar power system planned for Thilawa SEZ

The Ministry of Electric Power (MoEP) has announced plans to install a solar power system with a capacity of up to 14 megawatts in the Thilawa Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in Thanlyin Township, Yangon Region.
Currently, three plants within the Thilawa SEZ have already installed solar systems, generating approximately two megawatts of power. Further studies conducted by companies in the zone suggest that the solar system has the potential to produce up to 14 megawatts of power.
Myanmar-Japan Thilawa Development Company Limited (MJTD) has confirmed that once the solar system is installed, surplus power will be transmitted and distributed to other factories within the special economic zone through the Ministry of Electric Power’s power lines.
Covering an area of 667.275 hectares (approximately 1650 acres), Thilawa SEZ has attracted investment from 114 companies across 21 countries. Among the economic zones currently being implemented in Myanmar, Thilawa SEZ stands out as the most successful.
