The Hong Kong-headquartered VPower Group partnered with China National Technical Import and Export Corporation for the LNG-fueled power plant in Thaketa Township of Yangon, Myanmar. It began operations on June 14, 2020. It is the first time LNG has been used as fuel for power generation in Myanmar. A floating storage unit (FSU) receives LNG and supplies it to the power station as needed. The power station, with an installed capacity of 477.1 MW, was built on a fast-track basis for one of the Myanmar government’s shortlisted critical projects to boost power supply for summer 2020.
