The housing ministry on Sunday allocated land from the industrial village in Malé’s southwestern harbour for the State Electricity Company to build a new powerhouse.
Housing Minister Dr Mohamed Muiz told the press that the new powerhouse will be used to provide electricity from a separate grid to the industrial village after warehouses, workshops and the waste management centre are moved to the reclaimed area.
The powerhouse will also be used as a backup plant “when electricity goes out from time to time in Malé,” he said.
The 10,000 square feet plot was handed over to the state-owned utility company free of charge, he added.
