Hun Sen says water levels may cause power cuts in capital

Recommended Posts

Prime Minister Hun Sen yesterday advised residents and businesses in the capital to be prepared for electricity shortages which could occur in the future if water levels at hydropower dams run low.

 

Speaking at the official launch of the National Strategic Development Plan 2019-2023 in Phnom Penh, Mr Hun Sen said steps to increase the power supply are ongoing and apologised for any inconvenience caused if blackouts do occur.

 

He noted that the Ministry of Mines informed him that the Kingdom’s hydropower production capacity of 1,378 megawatts a day had recently dropped to between 184 and 187 megawatts per day because of lower water levels. The Kingdom also has diesel and solar-powered alternatives to produce electricity. “[Because of the hydropower situation] we may face problems in generating electricity,” Mr Hun Sen said.
