The new powerhouse that was built in GA. Maamendhoo under the government’s policy to relocate old powerhouses from the center of residential areas to isolated areas with modern resources has begun operation on 22nd November 2021.
The new powerhouse building includes a state-of-the-art office block which can accommodate 12 employees, a diesel storage tank, and a chimney. According to Fenaka Maamendhoo branch, the new office block can provide services to customers conveniently, without any difficulties.
The old powerhouse that has been providing electricity to the island for nearly 30 years has caused tremendous difficulties to Fenaka employees, especially in providing the administrative services due to lack of space. The new powerhouse will be crucial in resolving the issues faster and to provide trustworthy electricity services to the customers.
GA. Maamendhoo powerhouse is among the many powerhouses that the company relocated away from residential neighborhoods. The new powerhouses build across islands under Fenaka will have state-of-the-art office buildings and an upgraded fuel storage network. There will also be a sound attenuator that will control sound to 70 decibels or less that are in line with the Utility Regulatory Authority’s standards and regulations.
