Appointed as financial consultant to 500kV Power Transmission Project in Laos

Appointed as financial consultant to 500kV Power Transmission Project in Laos

TMP Consulting was engaged by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in May 2013 to provide financial advice for a shared 500 kV export-driven Power Transmission Facility in Nabong, Laos. TMP  was engaged to develop an equitable commercially viable cost sharing arrangement that will enable various hydropower plants to concurrently use the facility to export power to Thailand. The proposed arrangement also ensured that the owner of the facility will receive a reasonable return on its investment.

When fully operational, the 500 kV transmission line and associated sub-station will evacuate 1,800 MW hydroelectric power into Thailand. This is part of ADB’s efforts to help the Government of Lao to develop a nationwide unified high voltage transmission network. In line with the Government of Lao’s plan to increase power export to Thailand, more hydropower plants will be developed and it is intended that the existing Nabong Power Transmission Facility will be expanded to become a common power transmission corridor for evacuating power produced by a number of hydropower stations.
