PNG Power Limited (PPL) is reconstructing the transmission tower that was destroyed by a landslide in January 2018 at Kasam Pass, Eastern Highlands Province. The transmission tower supplies power to Lae and Madang from the Ramu 1 powerhouse at Yonki. However, it was toppled by a severe landslide in January 18, 2018 and disrupted power supply to customers in these two main regions. This damage has also contributed to power instability in the Ramu Grid (Highlands, Lae and Madang) and it’s an urgent reconstruction project that PPL engineers are undertaking. The tower is located near the source of Singsing Creek approximately two (2) kilometers from the main Okuk Highway and impossible to access.
