Port Moresby National Grid Expansion Plan


Our Role

The overall objective of this project is to increase access to an affordable power supply to the people of Port Moresby. This will be achieved by upgrading and extending the transmission and distribution grid in the national capital.

The project will help PNG Power Limited (PPL), the national power utility, to improve efficiency of the distribution network and expand renewable energy generation.

The project includes:

  • Upgrading and rehabilitating two hydropower plants (Rouna 1 and Sirinumu Toe-of-dam)
  • Developing the 11 kV distribution mesh network to extend the grid to approximately 3,000 additional households
  • Strengthening the distribution network
  • Construction of a new substation (Kilakila) with interconnecting 66 kV transmission lines
  • Upgrading the existing substations

Upon completion, this project will help to improve network reliability, reduce fossil fuel consumption and increase energy access in the Port Moresby power grid.
