Malaysia’s Tenaga Nasional Berhad and the State Government of Perak will partner to tap the potential of deploying floating solar systems close to the Sungai Perak Hydroelectric Scheme, Dam Reservoir.
The company said in its statement that it will be working with Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Perak through its own subsidiary TNB Power Generation.
Through its renewables arm, TNB will also work with the Perak government-linked firm Majuperak Holdings Berhad to develop a 100-megawatt ground-mounted solar project in the state. “These visionary endeavours are aligned with the NETR aimed at propelling Malaysia into a future marked by cleaner and more sustainable energy sources. The strategic partnerships with the Perak State Government entities signify a collective commitment to expedite the transition to environmentally friendly energy,” said TNB President and CEO Dato’ Seri Ir. Baharin Din.
It may be noted that Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) has expanded its sustainable development initiatives in ASEAN, opening more partnerships with government bureaus, key investors, and primary stakeholders to accelerate the energy transition.
As per reports, TNB holds 29 memoranda of understanding (MoUs) with local and international partners for developing solar parks, and integrating hydrogen and ammonia in power plants, interconnection, and electric vehicles. Their pipeline can add an estimated 12GW of solar plants and storage.
