STELCO’s new Managing Director, Mr. Hassan Mughnee had expressed the need for a backup electricity network in the Male’ Region
Taking the 2014 Water Crisis as an example, he explained that Male’ is not prepared for similar crisises and a backup network is crucial to be prepared for potential blackout.
He further stated that he intend to use the Industrial Village to build a powerhouse and connect it to Vilimale, Gulhifalhu and Thilafushi. This will aid in meeting the exceedingly high demand for electricity in Male.
Mr. Mughnee added that the backup network would allow routine maintenance work to be done without causing any inconvenience to the citizens of Male’.
