TNB Genco, YTL PowerSeraya imports 100MW electricity to Singapore 

The imported electricity will be supplied to Singapore commercially for the first time.

TNB Power Generation Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Tenaga Nasional Berhad, and YTL PowerSeraya Pte. Limited have partnered to import 100 megawatts of electricity to Singapore.

The electricity will be exported from Malaysia through a newly upgraded interconnector. 

“This is a positive step for the strengthening of cross-border energy supply towards the realisation of a fully interconnected ASEAN Power Grid,” Dato’ Nor Azman Bin Mufti, Managing Director, TNB Genco, said.

This is the first time electricity from Malaysia will be supplied to Singapore on a commercial basis, aligned with the Malaysian Energy Commission’s Guide for Cross-Border Electricity Sales (CBES). 

The CBES Guide was issued to facilitate cross-border electricity between Malaysia and neighbouring countries towards the vision of the ASEAN power grid. 

“We believe that this is the first step in our vision of a strong ASEAN power grid, where electricity imports may eventually form a key part of Singapore’s energy mix,” John Ng, CEO of YTL PowerSeraya, said.
