Prime Minister Hun Sen officially inaugurated a new electric power generation

plant in Phnom Penh on October 12.

Constructed by Jupiter Power Cambodia Co Ltd in partnership with Caterpillar Power

Ventures, the new C1-15 Megawatt Power station will go on-line tomorrow.

C1-15 plant will increase this to 65 megawatts with the electricity being fed into

the city grid and used by EDC for general purposes.

With other power plants in Battambang, Pursat and Kampong Chhnang, Jupiter Power

-headquartered in Calgary, Canada - now produces 25 percent of Cambodia's electricity,

according to David Lewis, president of Jupiter's local operations.
