Power cuts? Don't worry - "Cambodia considers floating plant from Turkey to battle power woes"

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

I think the ship that was earmarked is being serviced so won’t be ready on time anyway.

Yes, that is why the deal is off apparently. There could be other reasons like the expense, but if the power ship turns up in Cambodia two months late, during rainy season, then that's not what they signed up for. So it's canceled.
The ship expects to arrive Cambodia in early May; otherwise, the deal will be canceled, Electricite du Cambodge (EDC) official once told Fresh News when Cambodia-Turkey reached the deal in mid-March.

Those power ships are normally under two to five year contracts, so with that in mind a delay of even half a year shouldn’t be that big a deal...
