Ramu 2 is a major infrastructure project being managed by Kumul Consolidated Holdings (KCH). The project site is located downstream from the existing Yonki Dam and is capable of generating 180 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy.
It is expected to lift Yonki’s electricity capacity from the current 93MW (once all major refurbishment and upgrade works are completed) to 273MW, an expansion of 194% in scheme’s generation capacity.
More significantly, Ramu 2 is expected to increase total electricity generation capacity in Papua New Guinea by 36% by way of a low-cost renewable source.
The development of the Ramu 2 project is in line with the PNG Development Strategic Plan 2010-2030
