We are now undertaking consulting work on operation and maintenance of the San Roque Hydraulic Power Station of San Roque Power Corporation in the Philippines (a joint venture of Marubeni Corporation and The Kansai Electric Power Company, Incorporated).
We are providing consulting services to improve the technical skills of local staff, so that operation and maintenance of the hydro power station can be accomplished by local staff alone in the future. From 2006, when three years have elapsed since commencing operation of the power station, we have had trainees at hydro power stations and training centers of us to provide them with on-site practical training and training sessions.

Project for Formulation of the National Electricity Master Plan in the Union of Myanmar

Lecture of technology transfer
Lecture of technology transfer

Due to economic growth since the transition from military rule to a democratic government in 2011, a significant increase in electricity demand is expected in Myanmar, so matters such as improvement of insufficient power supply, reduction of transmission and distribution loss and enhancement of reliability become challenges. To meet these challenges, we have provided assistance to formulate an optimized national electricity master plan for the medium and long term to strategically develop power generation sources and transmission systems.
