This Monday, Minister of Electricity, Dr. Saleh Sumai and Hadhramawt Governor, Khaled Saeed al-Diny laid down the cornerstone of Mukalla's new power station.
Once completed the station will generate 40 Megawatts of electricity per day. The project which is partly funding by World Bank will cost an estimated $8 million.
The new project aims to address the province power deficit and ease off Hadhramawt power outages.
A report in February from the Human Rights ministry established over 10 million people in Yemen had no access to state amenities such as water or electricity, having to rely on their means
generate power and provide their families with water, often at high cost.
The transition government is now working toward filling the gap promoting similar power-generating programs all across the nation. In Mocha for example - near the southern city of Taiz on the Red sea coast (a wind farm will help the province meets its growing electricity need while developing a clean, sustainable and cost effective power source for the region).
Engineer Mubarak Awad al-Tamimi, Director of Hadhramawt Electricity and Energy department explained on Monday the station will its first phase of completion generate an estimated 10 Megawatt per day, enough to provide power to 40,000 subscribers.
Local residents welcomed the project saying the station will bring much needed relief to the region and help restore faith in the state's abilities to provide stability in the provinces.
