Concern over power project award
By SHAREN KAUR | 03 June 2014| last updated at 01:41AM
http://www.nst.com.my/business/today...award-1.610261

MULTI-PARTY CONSORTIUM: Industry players say TNB can do Track 4A job alone

INDUSTRY players have questioned the award of the multi-billion ringgit Track 4A power plant project in Johor to a tripartite consortium via direct negotiations.

They said if the Energy Commission insisted on awarding the contract without competitive bidding, Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) alone can undertake the job, given its greater resources and fine credit standing.

With assets worth nearly RM70 billion, TNB is the largest power utility company in Malaysia and Southeast Asia.

Manjung 4, Malaysia, the first ultra-supercritical steam power plant in South East Asia

TNB’s Manjung 4 power plant to fire up earlier that scheduled
20 JUNE 2014 @ 4:35 PM
http://www.nst.com.my/node/4629

KUALA LUMPUR: The Manjung 4 coal-fired power plant in Manjung, Perak, owned by Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB), will start operations in early August this year, earlier than scheduled.

The Manjung 4 station which is 98 per cent complete was slated to start operations on Aug 31, 2014, with the capacity of generating 1,000 megawatts (MW).

In a statement today, TNB chairman Tan Sri Leo Moggie said the additional power generation of 1,000MW through the new power station would be able to improve the stability of electricity supply in the country.

“TNB has expertise, high capability as well as able to implement the construction of mega infrastructure for the country’s development,” he said.

Yesterday, Leo Moggie and members of TNB Board of Directors made a one-day working visit to the Sultan Azlan Shah Power Station in Manjung, which is located next to the Manjung 4 site. – Bernama

Tenaga receives EEI award
29 OCTOBER 2014 @ 6:22 PM
http://www.nst.com.my/node/47523

KUALA LUMPUR: Tenaga Nasional Bhd has been awarded the "Edison Electric Institute (EEI) Asian Utility Award 2014" for the category of large capitalisation, gold level performance on the sidelines of the Asian Energy Financial and Investment conference held in Singapore last night.

The award is based on Tenaga Nasional’s achievements in posting the second highest shareholder returns in the category of large capital among Asian utilities firms.

In collaboration with investment analysts, EEI has identified 43 utilities companies in Asia and measure their financial performance for the previous three years to identify qualified companies.

At the award presentation, Tenaga Nasional was represented by its senior general manager for financial performance and strategy, Jamel Ibrahim, who read the speech of the president and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Azman Mohd.

“This award recognizes the company's position and strong financial performance as measured under careful standard financial indicators,” Azman said.

Moody’s upgrades TNB to A3
2 DECEMBER 2014 @ 12:16 PM
http://www.nst.com.my/node/58426

KUALA LUMPUR: Moody's Investors Service (Moody's) has upgraded the senior unsecured bond ratings of Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) and TNB Capital (L) Ltd to A3 from Baa1.

Moody's said at the same time, TNB's baseline credit assessment (BCA) was also raised to Baa2 from Baa3 with the outlook raised to positive from stable.

In a statement today, it said the positive outlook reflects the outlook for the Malaysian sovereign (A3 positive) as well as TNB's importance to Malaysia's economy, being the sole transmission and distribution networks operator and largest power generating company in the country.

The upgrade of the company's BCA to Baa2 reflects its dominant market position as the only fully integrated power utility in Malaysia, and takes into account the favourable regulatory environment following the implementation of the Incentive-Based Regulation (IBR) mechanism, said Moody's.

Moody's Vice President and Senior Analyst Ray Tay said IBR's Imbalance Cost Pass-Through (ICPT) adjustment allows for the adjustment of tariffs every six months to reflect a change in variable costs like fuel and power purchase costs.

"The ability to pass through these variable costs insulates TNB's financial performance from factors beyond its control compared to the previously ad-hoc tariff regime," said Tay.

The rating agency said although tariff revisions are subject to final approval from the Malaysian government (A3 positive), it has previously reimbursed TNB for funding shortfalls as a result of freezing tariffs.

Tay said a longer track record of the government's commitment to pass through changes in variable costs through the adjustment of tariffs would be credit positive.

Power purchase agreement adjustment would no longer be taken into account in recognition of the ability to pass through such costs and especially in view of the declining reserve margin in Peninsular Malaysia, said Moody's.

It said a lower reserve margin reduces the cost of capacity payments on unused capacity, especially during periods of low power demand.

Moody's said TNB's rating could be upgraded if Malaysia's sovereign rating is upgraded given its relatively high BCA of Baa2.

At the same time, the BCA could also be raised if the government achieves a track record of adjusting tariffs in accordance with changes in variable costs through the ICPT adjustment, it added.-- Bernama

TNB’s 1,071MW combined cycle power plant on track for operation in 2016
5 MARCH 2015 @ 8:47 PM
http://www.nst.com.my/node/75173

KUALA LUMPUR: Tenaga Nasional Bhd’s (TNB) 1,071-megawatt (MW) power plant in Seberang Perai, Penang, currently the world’s largest and most efficient gas turbine plant utilising Siemens H-Class technology, is on track for commercial operation on Jan 1, 2016.

The RM2.5 billion project is currently 94 per cent completed, said TNB in a statement here today.

The power plant is built on the same site of TNB’s decommissioned Prai power station.

The new high efficiency power plant comprises two blocks of single shaft combined cycle gas turbines that utilise the most efficient H-Class technology gas turbine with an block efficiency rate of 59.7 per cent.

Construction work commenced on May 2, 2013 after TNB and its partner, Samsung Engineering & Construction, beat 18 other international bidders to build, own and operate a 1000-1400MW power plant.

Samsung is the engineering, procurement and construction contractor of the project. – BERNAMA

8.5 million TNB customers to get smart meters
-Wednesday October 28, 2015 MYT 8-17-32 AM
http://www.thestar.com.my/News/Natio...-smart-meters/

PETALING JAYA: Consumers will soon have access to real-time information on their power usage, pattern and disruptions – thanks to the smart meter.

Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) plans to deploy its Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) to 8.5 million customers in the country.

Its president/CEO Datuk Seri Azman Mohd said the initiative was part of the company’s goal to achieve energy sustainability and security.

He said a pilot project had been carried out to understand the technological, regulatory and customer challenges.

“We will expand the AMI on a larger scale in the near future,” he said at the Association of Electricity Supply Industry of East Asia and the Western Pacific (AESIEAP) Chief Executive Officer Conference held in Thailand on Monday.

Azman said many countries in the Asia Pacific, such as Australia, New Zealand, Japan and South Korea, were already deploying smart meters on a large scale to take advantage of their capabilities in grid control and monitoring.

It was reported that a pilot project launched in Malacca in October 2014 was deemed successful.

The AMI system, which has been installed in about 180 million homes around the world, promises to offer flexible tariffs and prevent power theft.

It will allow the utility company to automatically disconnect supply if bills are defaulted and also do away with the need for meter readers to make house visits.

AESIEAP, formed in 1975, serves to foster cooperation and exchange of expertise and technology in the power supply industry.

TNB completes buying 30% of India’s GMR Energy for US$300mil
Saturday, 5 November 2016
http://www.thestar.com.my/business/b...-for-us300mil/

KUALA LUMPUR: Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) has completed the acquisition of a 30% stake in Indian power company, GMR Energy Limited (GEL), for US$300mil.

The strategic investment in GEL will be made via its wholly-owned subsidiary, Power and Energy International (Mauritius) Ltd (PEIM), TNB said in a statement yesterday.

The completion of the transaction marks TNB’s entry into India’s rapidly expanding power sector with demand for electricity growing between 6%-7%t of the compound annual growth rate (CAGR), adding 20GW of new capacity annually, an amount equivalent to Malaysia’s current installed capacity.

The acquisition cements a strategic investment in GEL which has a portfolio of five operational power assets in India comprising coal, gas and renewable energy with a combined capacity of 4,630MW, said TNB.

An additional four power assets are currently under construction in India and Nepal with a future combined capacity of 2,300MW.

“TNB’s acquisition of 30% of GEL is a highly strategic investment that seeks to harness the future value of Indias large and supply constrained power market,” said president and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Azman Mohd.

Strong growth in both the economy and energy demand coupled with a favourable energy policy framework means that this deal offers TNB attractive opportunities in the power sector on the sub-continent and establishes a strong foothold in the Indian power market.

“Growth in power generation is crucial to the success of India’s ‘Make In India’ industrialisation programme and progressive development of reliable supplies of new power will be needed to support the creation of new manufacturing bases throughout the country,” said TNB.

It added this growth in electricity consumption was in line with TNB’s international expansion roadmap to secure new generation capacity overseas.

“We believe the deal makes strong commercial sense by increasing our competitiveness, maximising shareholder value and delivering sustainable long-term earnings growth,” it said.

Meanwhile, GEL chairman G.B.S.Raju said TNB’s investment in GEL would result in the creation of a market leading Indian energy platform with significant avenues for growth and expansion.

TNB anticipates the transaction, to be financed by a combination of internal funds and external debt, to be earnings accretive by financial year 2018.

The advisors for this agreement included Credit Suisse (exclusive financial advisor), Slaughter and May and Khaitan and Co (legal counsel) and KPMG India Private Ltd (transaction due diligence, regulatory and commercial advisor). – Bernama

TNB ready to turn major challenges into opportunities
BY GOH THEAN HOWE - 2 NOVEMBER 2016 @ 11:01 AM
http://www.nst.com.my/news/2016/11/1...-opportunities

KUALA LUMPUR: Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB), the country’s largest electricity company, is embarking on the “Reimagining TNB” transformation programme to turn major challenges into opportunities.

President and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Azman Mohd said the programme is necessary in today’s world as the emergence of various game-changing technologies is changing the utility landscape.

“We in TNB view these big shifts (major challenges) as opportunities and we are embracing them with specific strategies under our ‘Reimagining TNB’ transformation programme,” he said in a statement yesterday. Azman said the industry is facing challenges in addressing energy security, providing access to affordable energy services and maintaining environmentally-friendly production and energy usage.

“The challenges, among others, come from rising competition from renewable energy, increasing efficiency of energy storage batteries, Internet of Things, smart grid and smart cities, and the need to incorporate them into business and operation.” Azman said turning the challengers into opportunities involves four main thrusts.

“These are actively pursuing future generation sources, especially renewable energy; grid of the future including smart grid; winning the customer for new and enhanced services and products; and, regulations, particularly under Incentive-Based Regulations.”

On the surface, the “Reimagining TNB” programme may look like a preview of its 10-year business plan. A TNB spokesperson did not deny or confirm that the programme is the utility giant’s 10-year business plan. According to analysts, TNB is undertaking two studies — one on its capital optimisation exercise and the other on a 10-year business strategic direction.

“We expect the 10-year business strategic direction to emphasise on TNB’s regional footprint expansion,” said MIDF Research analyst Hafriz Hezry. TNB, via its repair and maintenance arm, TNB Repair and Maintenance Sdn Bhd (TNB Remaco), has a presence in Pakistan, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.

TNB Remaco has also been awarded jobs in Vietnam, Singapore, Brunei, Indonesia, Myanmar, Chile and Argentina. Meanwhile, MIDF Research has maintained its “buy” recommendation and target price of RM16.80 for TNB.

This was on the back of strong earnings visibility post-imbalance cost pass-through tariff implementation, dividend catalyst on the back of free cash-flow yield and the upcoming capital optimisation exercise, as well as overseas expansion that provides stronger growth in the mid-term. According to data provided by Bloomberg, there were 25 research houses covering the stock recently with a target price as high as RM20, of which 22 of them placed “buy” recommendations and three placed “sell” recommendations.

TNB aims to build up businesses in three regions


Azman: ‘We aspire to have international investments accounting for 20% of our earnings by 2025.’

Quote:
PETALING JAYA: Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) is aggressively expanding its global footprint, eyeing opportunities in South-East Asia, South Asia and in the Middle East, said its president and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Azman Mohd.

The company aims to build up businesses in these regions to generate a healthy return on international investment, he said in its latest annual report (2016).

“We aspire to have international investments accounting for 20% of our earnings by 2025.”

To recap, TNB has made two notable overseas investments via a 30% stake in GAMA Enerji, Turkey and a 30% stake in GMR Energy, India for US$300mil this year.

TNB’s interest Turkey would pave the way for TNB to capitalise on latent opportunities in the region’s power plant operation and maintenance services sector.

GAMA Enerji currently has a 840MW natural gas-fired plant and a 45MW wind power plant under construction in Turkey which will come online at the end of 2016. It has also developed and operates a large water conveyance project in Jordan.

GMR Energy owns and operates 2,298MW of coal, gas and solar assets in India.

The acquisition marks TNB’s entry into India’s rapidly expanding power sector with demand for electricity growing between 6% and 7% of the compound annual growth rate, adding 20GW of new capacity annually, an amount equivalent to Malaysia’s current installed capacity.

Beyond the electricity business, TNB is also looking to grow its energy related services such as in the district cooling systems, taking advantage of recognition gained in the Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East.

It was looking to push its plant operation and maintenance services to the Middle East, South Asia and within Asean.

“We are currently servicing clients in Pakistan, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia through our subsidiary TNB Remaco and believe that we are able to grow this business bigger.

“Even as we set our sights on expansion abroad, Malaysia will remain our primary market.”

Azman said TNB continue to install new domestic capacity and for the financial year ended Aug 31, 2016 has brought online a total of 1,882MW with another 3,210MW in the pipeline for commissioning between end 2016 to 2019.

TNB eyes overseas growth, aims at 20% of profits from abroad
Friday, 16 December 2016
http://www.thestar.com.my/business/b...erseas-growth/

KUALA LUMPUR: Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) is aiming to derive 20% of its profits from overseas by 2025 to offset slowing growth locally.

“There has been a decoupling of electricity demand from gross domestic product (GDP) growth locally, so we will look outside of the country to diversify our revenue,” TNB president and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Azman Mohd said at a press conference after the company’s AGM.

“The reason for this is primarily because Malaysia is moving towards becoming a service-driven economy. I do not think we will continue to see energy demand growing at 1.0 or more times to the GDP growth of Malaysia. We think electricity demand growth will go down in relation to the GDP,” Azman said.

TNB chief financial officer Datuk Fazlur Rahman Zainuddin added that the group was looking at opportunities that would give it long-term sustainable growth.


“We would like to have a balanced portfolio. We cannot just look at one country or a particular region. We want to have a balanced portfolio of countries with high growth and stable revenues. The businesses we will go into will be electricity-related and not more than that,” Fazlur said.

“We would like to add more of the (electricity)-generation type of businesses. It could be in conventional generation like coal, gas, hydro or renewables. We are looking at a whole suite of investment opportunities. We are looking at an increase in our renewable energy assets,” he added.

The group, which had recently announced two overseas investments through a 30% stake in GAMA Enerji, Turkey, and a 30% stake in GMR Energy, India, said that overseas contribution was now at a negligible level and would be so even in financial year 2017 (FY17).

“Our 10-year journey has a focus on renewable energy and international expansion. Now is the beginning of this journey. In 2016, we had been busy with two acquisitions – these are the first steps,” Azman said.

TNB said the target is for overseas assets to contribute around 5,000 MW of net capacity by 2025. “At the moment, the net capacity (from overseas) is only 2,000 MW coming from India and Turkey. So, we have another 3,000 MW to go,” Fazlur said.

TNB did not divulge details on which countries it would invest in next, but said it would take an open approach for as long as its risk appetite allows it to do so.

“The decisions (on where to invest) are very fluid because we always have to conduct risk assessments. If our risk appetite allows for the investment, then we will continue (be open) to invest in those countries. We are also looking at Europe, where the regulatory framework is well-established,” Azman said.

“There are good investment opportunities in developed countries because of their disciplined legal and regulatory framework”

TNB chairman Tan Sri Leo Moggie said the move to go overseas was to broaden its revenue stream in addition to still investing domestically. “When we go outside, we will need to do a lot of due diligence in terms of country profiling or business advantages. We will also have to be very careful in evaluating any potential investments. Lest we forget, our core business is in the energy supply industry and this is where our strength is,” he said.

Fazlur also said the expansion would be funded via a combination of internal and external funds and that dividends would be sustainable.

“We have announced a dividend policy for financial year 2017 (FY17) ending Aug 31 of paying out 30% to 50% of the group’s profits. And this is actually a better policy compared to what we had in the past, where the payout depended on free cashflow. However, if we were to convert this into a percentage of profits in FY16, it is about 24.6% of group profits,” Fazlur said.

“Our dividend policy at the low end moving forward is 30%, so we believe this policy is actually sustainable, and we foresee that dividends will not be affected. TNB’s financial position is on a sound footing right now with a healthy gearing level. We have the capacity to borrow for further investments, if necessary,” he added.

Tenaga inks power deal with Edra Power
BY JOSEPH CHIN


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Tenaga Nasional Bhd has signed a power purchase agreement with Edra Power Holdings Sdn Bhd's unit which will build a plant with a total nominal capacity of 2,242.131 MW in Alor Gajah, Malacca.

The power giant said on Tuesday that Edra Energy Sdn Bhd would construct, own, operate and maintain the gas-fired combined cycle electricity generating facility.

Tenaga said the facility would consist of three generating blocks, with each generating block having a capacity of 747.377MW.

The expected commercial operation date for the first generating block would be Jan 1, 2021 while for the second block would be March 1, 2021 and for the third block May 1, 2021.

The PPA would be for 21 years from the commercial operation date of the first generating block.

“The signing of the PPA will not have any effect on the issued share capital and the substantial shareholders’ shareholdings of Tenaga and will have a neutral impact on the earnings of Tenaga over the term of the PPA,” it said.

TNB Remaco wins RM763mil contract to operate, maintain power plant in Pakistan



Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) unit TNB Repair and Maintenance Sdn Bhd (TNB Remaco) has bagged a US$176mil (RM763mil) contract to operate and maintain the 1,223 MW Balloki combined-cycle power plant in Punjab, Pakistan.

The 12-year contract was awarded by the National Power Parks Management Company (Pvt) Ltd, a government-linked company of Pakistan, TNB said in a statement to Bursa Malaysia.

The contract is TNB Remaco’s largest in Pakistan and is set to broaden its presence in the country.

The company's other operation and maintenance contracts in Pakistan are for the Liberty Power Plant, Narrowal Power Plant and New Bong Escape Hydro Power Plant
, it said.

The Balloki Power Plant uses General Electric’s latest gas turbine technology to fulfill the electricity demand in Pakistan, which is forecast to reach 12,300 GWh by 2020.

The contract is a new milestone for TNB Remaco as it is the largest operation and maintenance contract for a single power plant, locally and internationally, which represents a new benchmark for the unit in bidding for future contracts related to operation and maintenance, it said.

It is also in line towards achieving TNB’s aspiration to maximise revenue from non-regulated business, it added.

TNB Remaco won the contract through an international bidding exercise, and the operation and maintenance agreement was inked in Lahore, Pakistan last Friday. – Bernama

TNB’s RM6bil Manjung 5 plant project on track for production


Tenaga Nasional’s first clean-coal facility, located in Manjung, Perak.

Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Tenaga Nasional Bhd’s second ultra-supercritical (USC) RM6bil coal-fired power plant, Manjung 5 (M5), is on track to meet its scheduled commercial operation date (SCOD) this coming October or 45 months from the project’s starting date.

The power plant in Manjung l, Perak, has achieved its Initial Operation Date (IOD) on May 2, 2017, where for the first time its generator was synchronised to the national grid, TNB said on Sunday.

The plant’s operator, TNB Manjung Five Sdn Bhd, is working closely with the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for the plant - a consortium comprising Sumitomo Corp of Japan and Daelim Industrial Co Ltd of South Korea to ensure full commissioning of the plant.

After the IOD, the plant will undergo further tests to comply with the Malaysian Grid Codes.

Additionally, it will require further tuning works to achieve full capacity of generating 1,000 megawatts (MW) of electricity.

M5 will increase TNB’s coal-fired generation capacity to almost 5,000MW, representing about a quarter of Peninsular Malaysia’s installed capacity, it added.

Previously, its neighbouring Manjung 4 (M4) is South-East Asia’’s first coal-fired power plant to run on USC, which is the most efficient technology for coal-fired power plant. - Bernama
