Public meetings to present major electricity project for South Mahé


The Public Utilities Corporation (PUC) is currently undertaking a technical and economic feasibility study for a 33KV transmission and distribution electricity network for South Mahé.

This will include the construction of new 33KV substations at Au Cap, Anse Royale, Quatre Bornes, Takamaka, Baie Lazare, Anse à la Mouche and Port Launay. The proposed network is being planned for underground and overhead configuration.

This project is part of PUC’s overall plan to enhance the electricity network for that region. Districts who will benefit directly from the project are Pointe Larue, Anse aux Pins, Aux Cap, Anse Royale, Takamaka, Baie Lazare, Grand Anse Mahé and Port Glaud.

The meetings regarding this project will be held  on Thursday July 4 at 5pm at the Anse Royale community centre and on Friday July 5, also at 5pm, at the Port Glaud community centre.
