Cambodia investing $66M in T&D network expansion

Electricite Du Cambodge has signed contracts with three foreign companies to expand Phnom Penh’s energy transmission and distribution systems in a project worth $66 million.

As part of the project, two substations will be built near Wat Phnom, with power transformers and associated electrical equipment, as well as 12 kilometres of 115 kV transmission lines, reports Khmer Times.

The project will also see the installation of an additional 20 kilometres of 22 kV transmission lines in the capital.

The project will be financed with a concessional loan from the Japan International Cooperation Agency.

The government aims to have every village in the country connected to the national grid by 2020.
