Malaysia seeks bidders for 2 coal-fired plant projects
Malaysia is eyeing two coal-fired power plants with total capacity of 3,000MW.
The Energy Commission is currently inviting prospective bidders to participate in the pre-qualification process by identifying suitable partners as well as project sites.
It said that the first would be for a 1,000MW plant on a fast-track basis while the second was for a 2,000MW plant at a new site.
“The fast-track 1,000MW will be operational by October 2017 and the second power plant, which is to be developed at a greenfield site, will be commissioned by 2018/2019,” it said.
The issuance of request for qualification document will end on Jan 4, 2013.
