  1. Hi Pon.

    I own HYDRO. Will they operate the two Myanmar projects (like Chaing Mai) after they complete them or have any long-term involvement afterwards in the running of these plants or is it just an engineering project for them?

    Thanks

    1. Hi Tony,

      The company doesn’t seem to have confirmed if they have an O&M Contract in Myanmar just yet, but I do believe thats their aim.
