The Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) has partnered with three companies to study fuel sources in line with Malaysia’s clean energy transition. 

Through its subsidiary TNB Fuel Services Sdn Bhd, it signed a three-year agreement with  a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with MNA Fuel Services Sdn Bhd (MNAF), Itochu Malaysia Sdn Bhd (ITOCHU) and Cement Industries of Malaysia Berhad (CIMA). 

“In line with national aspirations, the journey towards sustainable technology requires significant changes in the way we select and develop research programs, technologies, and the necessary equipment and manpower,” TNB President and CEO Dato' Indera Ir. Baharin Din said.
