ADB approves 127.8 million USD loan for Cambodia to expand power transmission lines

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has approved a 127.8 million USD loan to support the construction of transmission lines and substations in Cambodia, the bank said in a press statement.

The project will help provide Phnom Penh, capital of Cambodia, and three other provinces with stable and reliable electricity supply, the statement said.

“The Grid Reinforcement Project, along with ADB’s ongoing assistance to Cambodia in power system planning, shows that adequate, reliable, and environmentally sustainable power supply can be provided at reasonable cost to support equitable development,” said ADB country director for Cambodia Sunniya Durrani-Jamal.
