Samoa gets new power sub-station

4:48 pm on 17 October 2014

The Samoa Prime Minister, Tuila'epa Sa'ilele Malielegaoi, has just opened a multi-million dollar power sub-station at Fuluasou.

The new system will allow the Samoa Electric Power Corporation to monitor its key assets on Upolu and Savaii.

It will also ensure cheaper, more efficient and more reliable delivery of electricity around the country.

The system, which cost just over seven million US dollars, has been funded by the Asian Development Bank, Japan, and AusAID.
