Russia’s Rosatom plans to develop 372 MW of wind in Myanmar

The Russian energy group Rosatom has announced plans to develop two wind projects totalling 372 MW in central Myanmar. The company signed Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) with the Ministry of Electricity and Energy of Myanmar and the Burmese company Zeya & Associates to conduct feasibility studies for a 200 MW wind park in the townships of Kyaukpadaung and Nyaung-U in the Mandalay Region (Central Myanmar), and with Myanmar’s company Primus Advanced Technologies for a 172 MW wind project in Myanmar's Mague District.

In March 2023, Myanmar and China signed a Memorandum of Agreement to build three wind power projects with a total capacity of 360 MW in An, Gwa and Thandwe townships in Myanmar’s Rakhine State. Myanmar has currently no operational wind capacity. Its capacity mix is dominated by hydro (46%, 3.3 GW), followed by gas (41%, 2.9 GW).
