GDh. Atoll, Maldives – Foundation stones have been placed in three different islands of Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll to build new FENAKA powerhouses in each island.

The three islands in GDh. Atoll that are expected to have new FENAKA powerhouses in a few months are GDh. Thinadhoo, GDh. Gahdhoo and GDh. Rathafandhoo.

During a special ceremony, FENAKA Corporation Limited Managing Director, Ahmed Saeed did the honors of placing foundation stores in all of the three islands.

According FENAKA, the new buildings that are proposed to be built will be modern office buildings that will help upgrade electrical networks of many islands in which FENAKA provides power service.

FENAKA informed that they will have very safe fuel storage methods along with chimneys that will filter the polluted air to help reduce air pollution in the country. They added that as per Maldives Energy Authority guidelines, sound pollution by the generators should not reach above 70 Decibels, and that with modern sound attenuator technology, this will be possible at new stations.

FENAKA has started 48 power station projects, of which 15 are completed. FENAKA provides utility services in over 150 islands and has a workforce of more than 3,300 staffs.
