The State Electric Company (STELCO) announced on Sunday that the Greater Male’ power system had been effectively synchnorized.
The physical work of a power grid connecting Male’, Hulhule, and Hulhumale was finished earlier this month. The project’s main purpose was to address the electrical issues that Male’ inhabitants were experiencing.
On Sunday, STELCO brought the Greater Male’ power grid online and conducted their first test on the new infrastructure.
Following the first successful test of the new power grid, STELCO stated that with the Greater Male’ grid, the country’s energy industry has advanced to the next level, and that it will improve the services provided by the company.
STELCO previously stated that interconnecting the power grids would ensure that any difficulties faced with an individual region’s power grid could be addressed through an interconnected grid.
Furthermore, the government is currently attempting to establish a 150MW power station in Thilafushi to meet the electricity needs of the Greater Male’ area.
The Greater Male’ Interconnection Project was made possible by a financing from the Exim Bank of China. The project’s goal is to offer uninterrupted electrical delivery throughout the Greater Male’ Region on a long-term basis.
