Contexte
The installation capacities of its power generation, transmission and distribution facilities are in short supply and existing facilities have deteriorated over the years. It is also impossible to import power from other countries. The country has difficulty meeting demands to supply power to drive the desalination plants or various health and social services. The history of having relied upon the independent initiatives of local communes to provide their own small-scale power generation and terminal transmission and distribution network has led to the weakness in long-distance and high-voltage transmission and distribution network facilities, giving rise to high transmission and distribution loss. The 6 target islands face problems including electricity loss, blackout and electrification ratio, and a stable transmission and distribution network is much needed.

Objectif
The project aims to stabilize power supply and improve access to electricity on 6 islands by implementing new installation, enhancements and update works on their transmission and distribution lines. The project is expected to help improve the country’s living environment as well as contribute to the vitalization of its economy. In addition, the reduction of transmission and distribution loss and the electrification of non-electrified rural communes are expected to contribute to climate change mitigation as they would reduce the emission of greenhouse gases. The fund obtained through the ODA loan will be appropriated for the construction of transmission, distribution and substation facilities as well as other necessary costs.
