  • Malaysia looking to increase hydroelectric power capacity with rehab, new projects

    Malaysia Flag

    Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) has identified five sites that will help the Malaysian utility raise its hydroelectric power capacity from its current 1,900 MW to more than 3,000 MW by 2020, the company told Asian news sources.

    According to TNB officials, the company's plans include a 265 MW plant in Hulu Terengganu, 378 MW plant in Hulu Jelai, 150 MW plant in Tekai, and 12 MW plant in Chenderoh.

    HydroWorld.com reported in 2007 that constructionof the Hulu Terengganu and Hulu Jelai projects was to have begun in 2008, though work never begun.

    State news agency Bernama also reported that TNB is planning on increasing the output capacity at the 400-MW Sultan Mahmud Kenyir hydropower project by about 15% via upgrades to its existing turbine units.

    The Sultan Mahmud Kenyir plant was commissioned in 1985 with each of the four turbines projected to have a life expectancy of about 32 years, meaning they are almost due for an overhaul regardless, TNB said.
