Published on: Thursday, October 12, 2017

Kuala Lumpur: Tenaga Nasional Bhd's (TNB) wholly-owned unit, TNB Repair And Maintenance Sdn Bhd (TNB REMACO), has signed a term sheet agreement with Negeri Sembilan Cement Industries Sdn Bhd (NSCI) to build a RM200 million waste heat recovery power plant (WHRPP).

NSCI is a wholly-owned unit of Cement Industries Malaysia Bhd (CIMA).

TNB in a filing to Bursa Malaysia yesterday said under the agreement, TNB REMACO would develop, design, construct, commission, operate, maintain and raise financing for the WHRPP which would utilise waste heat from NSCI's plants.

"The WHRPP will have a combined power generation capability of 23 Megawatt (MW) by recovering the exhausted waste heat from the cement plants in Bahau, Negeri Sembilan and Bukit Keteri, Perlis with a capability of reducing up to 12 per cent of NSCI's electricity cost," it added.

It said the WHRPP would contribute towards green energy and energy efficiency through reduction of carbon emission, as well as competitive advantage through energy cost savings for NSCI cement plants. – Bernama
