Cambodia succeeded in negotiations to lease a 200MW Turkish power ship to meet electricity demands in Phnom Penh, amid a nearly 400MW electricity shortage nationwide, Prime Minister Hun Sen said on Friday.
Speaking at the 18th Government-Private Sector Forum on Friday at the Peace Palace, the prime minister said the Kingdom reached a deal with Turkey for a three-year supply of electricity.
“Negotiations were successful for the lease of the power ship to supply Phnom Penh’s [electricity] needs. We will use the [power ship] for no less than three years,” he said.
