PNG Power is pleased to announce that its much needed technical equipment to complete installation works for its new Edevu Hydro Power Station and the Moitaka Sub Station have finally arrived in Port Moresby, directly from Shenzhen, China last night (Sunday 20th August, 2023).

A Boeing 767 cargo freighter loaded with close to 100 tonne of PNG Power cargoes, mostly Switching Gears and Control Panels, landed safety on a four (4) hour direct flight, said to be the first of its kind.

PNG Power Chairman Mr McRonald Nale was amongst State Enterprise Minister William Duma, China’s Embassador to PNG Mr Zeng Fanhua, KCH Board and Management team, PNG Power’s CEO, Air Niugini and NAC as well as members from Allan Guo Investments, to receive the arrival of the freighter airplane.

Mr Nale acknowledged the continuous support by the State Enterprise Minister William Duma and the current government under the leadership of Prime Minister Mr James Marape, as well as Kumul Consolidated Holdings Limited, to ensure PNG Power can improve in the delivery of cheap, affordable, reliable and clean power supply to its customers.

Mr Nale also made acknowledgements to PNG Power’s Development Partner, Allan Guo Investments, for its ongoing support and investment foresight within the power industry.

Allan Guo for bringing solutions for PNG Power. This Edevu hydro will bring into the Port Moresby Grid, 54 megawatts of power, which will lead into more least cost generation, something Allan has gone out of his way without any PNG Power or State guarantee, to resolve within PNG Power and its Port Moresby Grid as well as Ramu Grid, “Mr Nale said.

Mr Nale also extended his appreciation again to Mr Allan Guo for his urgency in organizing this Chartered flight directly from China, to bring all the necessary equipment to complete the construction of Edevu Hydro and the Moitaka Sub Station.

“Work would have been delayed by two months, If AG Investments and PNG Power decided to ship in all the materials and equipment.”

Mr Nale also gave assurance to the Government, its shareholder KCH and partners who were present for the occasion, that PNG Power has been in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons, however there are changes taking place to ensure PNG Power solves all its power generation and transmission issues.

“Tonight (Sunday 20th August, 2023) is a testimony that PNG Power is actually changing for the right reasons, and we look forward to commission Edevu Hydro in October to improve power reliability as well as cheaper power, within the Port Moresby Grid.”
