TNB calls for green energy tax incentives
By Zaidi Isham Ismail Published: : 2010/10/02
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...TER-2/Article/



TENAGA Nasional Bhd (TNB) (5347) is calling on the government to introduce tax incentives under the upcoming Budget 2011 to promote green energy such as the installation of solar panels and other equipment at homes and workplace.

TNB president and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh said this will encourage more people to use renewable energy sources which can lead to a reduction in overall energy cost.

"I think the government will put more initiatives for green energy under the Budget," Che Khalib told reporters in Kuala Lumpur yesterday after jointly launching an energy efficiency contest with the New Straits Times Press (NSTP).

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak is due to present the Budget in Parliament on October 25.

Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister Datuk Peter Chin Fah Kui said on Tuesday Malaysia is going all out to apply green technology.

TNB's capital expenditure may peak to RM6.5bil
By DANNY YAP Thursday December 16, 2010



Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh ...
‘We anticipate an additional RM1bil to as high as RM2bil capex.’


Additional funds needed in 2013 to complete three new power plants

KUALA LUMPUR: Tenaga Nasional Bhd's (TNB) capital expenditure (capex) for fiscal years ending Aug 31, 2011 and 2012 will remain between RM4.2bil and RM4.5bil but could peak up to RM6.5bil in 2013 as additional funds will be needed to complete its three new power plants.

President and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh said TNB's three new power plant projects located in Ulu Jelai, Pahang, Hulu Terengganu and Jana Manjung in Perak were currently at the preliminary stage of development and hence did not require much funds for now.

But at the advanced stages of development of the power plants in 2013, more funds will be required, he told reporters after TNB's AGM yesterday. The RM2.1bil Ulu Jelai and RM1.6bil Hulu Terengganu plants would generate 372MW and 250MW of electricity respectively.

Construction of both hydro plants has begun, while the coal-fired plant in Jana Manjung, which is now undergoing expansion, is expected to generate 1,000MW when completed by 2015.

TNB's capex should peak in 2013 as more funds will be required when the power plant projects near completion. We anticipate an additional RM1bil to as high as RM2bil capex, he said.

TNB awards RM1b jobs for hydropower project
Published: 2010/12/17
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz18Magw0gO

The job packages involve the construction of two dams, installation of two hydro turbines and generators in an underground 250 megawatts power station.

Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) yesterday awarded more than RM1 billion worth of packaged jobs to build the Hulu Terengganu Hydropower on Sungai Terengganu, upstream of Kenyir Lake.

The job packages involve the construction of two dams, installation of two hydro turbines and generators in an underground 250 megawatts (MW) power station.

In its filing to the stock exchange yesterday, TNB said the hydropower project will take five years to complete. Payment will be made progressively and by October 2015, the plant is expected to start producing electricity.

Loh & Loh Construction Sdn Bhd and Sinohydro Corp Ltd joint-venture were awarded RM828.3 million contract to build two dams, a water transfer tunnel and an underground power house.

The Consortium of Alstom Projects India Ltd and Alstom Hydro Malaysia Sdn Bhd were awarded separate contracts worth e27.5 million (RM114 million) and RM127.6 million to design, make, erect, test and commission two generators, each capable of generating 125MW.

The remaining job package, split into C$17.3 million (RM54 million) and RM35.9 million contracts, goes to SNC-Lavalin Inc, SNC-Lavalin Power (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, KTA Tenaga Sdn Bhd and G&P Professionals Sdn Bhd to provide detailed engineering design for the main civil works, engineering design review for the electrical and mechanical works, project management and site supervision.

TNB to build gas-fired power plant in Sabah
Published: 2011/03/23
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...tnbah/Article/



SINGAPORE: Malaysia's national power producer Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) (5347) plans to build a 300-megawatt gas-fired power plant in Sabah, chief executive Officer Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh said yesterday.

The plan to build a gas-based plant comes after Malaysia's federal and Sabah state governments scrapped a plan to build a coal-fired power plant.

Che Khalib said TNB has received in-principle approval to build the plant.

"It will be a gas-fired plant to replace the coal-based one that was being planned. We are looking to do it either through piped gas of LNG."
The company is currently assessing whether piping in the gas from another part of the state or importing it in its chilled form as liquefied natural gas was the best option economically, he added.

TNB said he expects to mitigate the impact of rising coal prices on the company's bottom line by securing long-term supply contracts with mines in Australia, Indonesia and South Africa.

He ruled out taking ownership in any of them. "We don't believe in owning mines," Che Khalib said.

TNB had in January warned of greater pressure on its margins for the rest of the year on skyrocketing price of coal.

In a worst case scenario, TNB's 2011 earnings would be 20 per cent lower than 2010, although Che Khalib said he expected coal prices to moderate after February.

About 40 per cent of the company's power supply is coal-fired.

Despite growing imports of LNG, Che Khalib expects Malaysia to remain a next exporter of the super-cooled gas for the next 20 years, he said. - Reuters

TNB inks pact on Manjung power plant
Published: 2011/04/01
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

Tenaga Nasional Bhd's (TNB) wholly-owned subsidiary, TNB Janamanjung Sdn Bhd (TNBJ), has signed an engineering, procurement and construction agreement with the Consortium of Alstom Power System SA to develop a 1x1000MW coal-fired power plant in Manjung, Perak.

The contract is worth over RM5 billion and will potentially increase TNB group's net assets by approximately 17.28 per cent.

The consortium comprises Alstom Power System SA, Alstom (Wuhan) Engineering & Technology Co. Ltd, Alstom Services Sdn Bhd, China National Machinery Import & Export Corporation and CMC Machipex Sdn Bhd.

The consortium will be responsible for the design, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of the power plant, the company said in a filing to Bursa Malaysia today.

TNB said the project which is expected to be completed and fully commissioned by March 2015 is part of its on-going efforts to cater for future demand growth in electricity.

The national utility company said the proposed coal-fired power plant will be located adjacent to its existing 3x700MW coal-fired power plant in Manjung.

"The new plant will utilise the supercritical boiler technology which is deemed to be cleaner than the conventional boiler technology," it added. --Bernama

Tenaga ranked 550th in Forbes list
Published: 2011/04/28
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) leapt 159 spots to rank as the 550th world's biggest company in this year's list of Forbes Global 2000.

Of the 20 Malaysian companies listed in Forbes Global 2000 for 2011, TNB was placed third with sales of US$9.6 billion, assets of US$23.6 billion and market value of US$11.1 billion, said TNB in a statement today.

"Electricity demand growth in line with the upswing in the domestic economy and the enhanced operational efficiencies pushed our ranking back into the 500 range this year from 709th in 2010," said TNB President/Chief Executive Officer Datuk Sri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh.

He added that it would be challenging for the utility company to remain at that spot next year given rising coal prices, insufficient gas supply and comparatively more expensive alternative fuels.

Forbes Global 2000 is an annual listing of 2000 of the world's biggest corporations issued by Forbes. It uses an equal weighting of sales, profits, assets and market value to rank companies according to size. -- Bernama

TNB sparkles
By Francis FernandezPublished: 2011/05/25
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...TNBXX/Article/



KUALA LUMPUR: Tenaga Nasional Bhd's share price shot up yesterday on anticipation that the national utility will receive approval from the government for a tariff hike.

Speculation was at feverish pitch on the back of a lacklustre market yesterday, as funds and punters drove TNB shares to its highest level in well over three months.

Yesterday, TNB closed higher by 27 sen at RM6.49 with more than 14 million shares exchanging hands.

The two TNB call warrants in the market, namely TNB CQ and TNB CR, were also actively traded.

TNB CQ was up 2.5 sen to close at 11.5 sen, while the TNB CR call warrants closed also 2.5 sen higher at 7.5 sen a warrant.

Speculation is rife that at today's cabinet meeting, it will approve a minimum 5 per cent hike, allowing TNB to raise commercial and private electricity rates.

OSK Research expects a 5 per cent to 10 per cent tariff hike for the utility, as the tariff has been unchanged since March 2009.

However, Business Times understands that under the new tariff regime, some 56 per cent of the nation's population will not be affected by the increase in tariff rates.

Meanwhile, after the close of trading yesterday, TNB announced that its president and chief executive officer Datuk Che Khalib Mohamad's contract has been extended by a year to June 30 2012.

Tenaga's power plan
By Shahriman Johari Published: 2011/08/20
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html



Kuala Lumpur: Tenaga Nasional Bhd is proposing that first generation power contracts are allowed to expire and an open bidding process be used to replace the lost capacity.

"To me, the PPA (power purchase agreement) renegotiations did not bring any results. It is probably time for the parties to decide what to do," TNB chief executive officer Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh told Business Times in an interview recently.

Apart from the failed two rounds of talks, the scarcity of gas is also a factor.

If gas continues to be scarce, it will be better for the country to have new plants that are more efficient and can last another 25 years. New plants that are more efficient will be able to produce more power using the same amount of gas.

Building new gas-fired plants will also help the country reduce its carbon footprint, he explained.


"Because gas is becoming more scarce, we better think seriously about this," Che Khalib said.

TNB's proposal means that independent power producers with contracts that will start expiring in stages from end-2015 will bid to supply new capacity from 2016 onwards.

It also means that IPPs must be told sometime in 2012 or 2013 if their PPAs won't be renewed. This will give them time to bid and build new plants.

There are five first-generation PPAs signed in 1993 that are binding for 21 years.

The IPPs are YTL Power Generation Sdn Bhd, Genting Sanyen Power Sdn Bhd, Segari Energy Ventures Sdn Bhd, Powertek Bhd and Port Dickson Power Sdn Bhd.

These IPPs have a collective generation capacity of around 4,100MW and the PPAs would expire in stages from end-2015.

It was reported that a new government unit called MyPower Corp will review PPAs between TNB and IPPs and make recommendations to three ministries, said Energy, Green Technology and Water Ministry deputy secretary-general Badaruddin Mahyuddin.

MyPower is headed by Datuk Abdul Razak Majid, formerly TNB's senior vice-president of corporate affairs.

"Part of its (MyPower) task is to review and discuss the contents of the PPAs and come up with suggestions for both TNB and IPPs. Before submitting these recommendations to the three ministries KeTTHA, Prime Minister's Office and Finance Ministry, the unit will jointly discuss them with the Energy Commission," Badaruddin reportedly said.

Grim picture for TNB; RM3bil more needed for power generation
Wednesday September 14, 2011
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...0&sec=business



“Power plants in the country were not made to burn distillates. To generate
1,000 MW using the alternate fuel, it costs us about an extra RM10mil daily.
It’s time for the country to review the gas allocation policy,”
Che Khalib(right in pic) said at TNB's Hari Raya open house.


PETALING JAYA: Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) president and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh has painted a grimmer picture for the national utility firm, estimating that TNB will need to spend another RM3bil on power generation for this year due to a shortage of gas supply.

Bernama reported yesterday quoting Che Khalib as saying that TNB would need to go to the market to raise money for operations, for the first time, if no immediate solution was found to address the gas crisis.

He added that all fund raising done previously was for capital expenditure.

TNB has been experiencing gas curtailment from its supplier, Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas), and has seen the gas shortage impact its bottom line, prompting the company to issue a warning on its profitability and dividend payment.

On average, TNB is getting about 900 million standard cu ft per day (mmscfd), far from the usual rate of 1,250 mmscfd.

TNB needs to replace the shortfall in gas volume by utilising more oil and distillates which are five times more expensive than gas.

“Power plants in the country were not made to burn distillates. To generate 1,000 MW using the alternate fuel, it costs us about an extra RM10mil daily. It's time for the country to review the gas allocation policy,” he told the news agency at TNB's Hari Raya open house.

Che Khalib said the financial impact of gas shortage for TNB was more apparent this year, with the extra cost for power generation estimated at a minimum of RM2.6bil for 2011.

“At the moment, we are using internal reserves which are draining out fast. Our debt level, which stood at RM32bil in 2001, is down to RM18bil, and this gives us room to borrow but we can't sustain ourselves for long. We need a permanent solution,” he added.

It is expected that gas supply to TNB will likely normalise by the middle of next year when Petronas' regasification terminal for liquefied natural gas in Malacca becomes ready.

Analysts also expect that Petronas' RM15bil gas-exploration project in the North Malay Basin will benefit TNB as the project will increase gas volumes for Petronas' customers, including TNB.

However, they said that the RM15bil gas-exploration project would not solve the immediate gas-shortage problem for TNB as the first gas from the project was expected in 2013.

Based on TNB's current gas power-generation capacity, the volume needed is about 1,700 mmscfd. The power sector is entitled to about 1,350 mmscfd.

Meanwhile, Bernama also reported that TNB has lobbied for the additional fuel costs to be shared with Petronas and independent power producers.

Last month, TNB submitted a proposal for cost sharing as an immediate solution to the Government but there has been no decision yet.

In its report on TNB yesterday, AmResearch Sdn Bhd upgraded its call on the stock from “hold” to “buy”, stating that the company's valuations had become compelling for a utility firm, with its share price having fallen below its book value at RM5.32 per share.

“TNB is currently trading at highly attractive single-digit financial year 2012 forecast price earnings valuation of only 8 times at the bottom of its five-year band of 8 times to 15 times,” AmResearch said.

TNB's share price ended seven sen higher at RM5.21 yesterday.

TNB to issue RM5bil sukuk for Janamanjung plant soon
By CHOONG EN HAN Saturday September 17, 2011
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...3&sec=business

PETALING JAYA: Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) will raise RM5bil from a 20-year ringgit-denominated sukuk issuance at the end of next month to finance the extension of its Janamanjung power plant.

This comes at a time when the national utility company is facing a severe gas supply shortage that may result in it incurring additional fuel cost.

In a Bernama report on Thursday, TNB president and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohd Noh said the group would do its book-building exercise in the third week of October. “The timing is good as the domestic market is now flush with liquidity,” he said.

In April, TNB awarded French group Alstom a 650-million-euro (RM2.8bil) contract to build the Janamanjung 1,000-MW supercritical coal-fired power plant.

Alstom will engineer, procure, construct and commission a 1,000-MW steam turbine, a generator, a supercritical boiler and auxiliaries. The plant is expected to come online in 2015.

The plant will be the single largest in South-East Asia and will produce enough electricity to power nearly two million households in the country.

The project follows TNB's 1999 contract with Alstom to build the currently operating 2,100-MW Manjung coal-fired power plant.

The supercritical power plant operates at a higher temperature than regular coal-fired power plants. Its high temperature increases the pressure at which it operates, which in turn improves its efficiency, increasing the amount of power output and decreasing emission per unit of fuel burned.

Meanwhile, TNB is still bogged down by cost concerns whereby it may incur additional fuel costs of up to RM3bil.

On Tuesday, Che Khalib said the company's fourth-quarter performance would be weak and his earnings estimate for 2011 had gone haywire and had been cut by more than 50%, marred by a continued gas supply shortage.

Analysts have said the gas shortage might only be permanently resolved by the second half of 2012, when Petronas Gas' regasification terminal in Malacca was operational and Malaysia started importing liquefied natural gas at market prices.

Tenaga: RM9.7b for 4 new plants
By Azman Mahmood Published: 2012/05/01
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...ERANG/Article/



KUALA BERANG: Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) will spend RM9.7 bilion to build four power stations in the next five years.

Three of them, the 1,000-megawatt (MW) coal-fired Sultan Azlan Shah power station in Manjung, and the 250MW Hulu Terengganu and the 378MW Ulu Jelai (Pahang) hydroelectric projects will be completed by 2015.

TNB president and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh said the fourth project is the 1,000MW coal-fired power station by an independent power producer (IPP) in Tanjung Bin, Johor.

He said the RM6 billion IPP project will be completed in 2016.

"When all the power stations are completed, our capacity to generate electricity will be increased by 2,630MW," he said.

He said the current generating capacity is 20,500MW, of which 12,000MW come from gas-fired power stations, 7,000MW from coal-fired ones and only 1,500MW from hydroelectric stations.

He was speaking to reporters after launching the river diversion stage of the Hulu Terengganu hydroelectric project here, yesterday.

The RM1.6 billion project started in 2010 and is expected to be operational by the end of 2015.

Che Khalib hailed it as TNB's sustainable project, in which special attention is given to the environment.

"Wherever possible, we will not touch the trees around the project site," he said.

Commenting on future projects, he said the current world trend shows more power is generated by gas-fired plants and it is likely that it will also be the focus in future power generation projections.

"Gas is the popular choice because it has a minimal impact on the environment.

"It accounts for 40 per cent of the world's power generation and is expected to grow to 50 per cent by 2020 and 60 per cent by 2030," he said.

Nuke plant not in Klang Valley

PETALING JAYA: Malaysia’s first nuclear power plant should not be built in the Klang Valley which has a high population of seven million people, said the atomic energy regulator.

Atomic Energy Licensing Board director-general Raja Datuk Abdul Aziz Raja Adnan said the plant and its buffer zone needed to be constructed on at least 2.6sq-km of land, equal to about 314 football pitches.

Abdul Aziz, who claimed he was neither for nor against nuclear energy, said the plant would need a base of solid rock with little or no seismic movement, more than 10m elevation to be safe from disasters like tsunamis and hurricanes, and located near a large body of water for cooling purposes.

“It needs to be near the electricity grid in order to ‘hook’ onto it and on the least populated area with no other land use.

“So, the Klang Valley is expected to be out,” he said in an interview yesterday.

Abdul Aziz was commenting on a statement by Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister Datuk Seri Peter Chin Fah Kui that his ministry was currently conducting a study into constructing Malaysia’s first plant, estimated to cost RM20bil.

He stressed that the Government must fully comply with the advice of the International Atomic Energy Agency on the construction.

“It is important that an independent, internationally recognised agency look at whether our infrastructure meets world standards,” he said, adding that technology using mixed oxide methods could convert plutonium, which was spent nuclear fuel, to become more manageable by recycling part of it.

He said there were also mechanisms whereby vendors could lease nuclear fuel to Malaysia and then take it back for reprocessing.

Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Nuclear Science Department scientist Prof Datuk Dr Sukiman Sarmani said the plant’s ideal site would be near the Straits of Malacca, among which are Batu Pahat in Johor, Pulau Angsa in Selangor and Sitiawan in Perak.

“Other states like Malacca and Pahang will definitely offer some locations. too,” he said, adding that selection must be subject to the Environmental Impact Assessment and Radiological Impact Assess*ment.

Dr Sukiman said while there was already a storage facility for low-level radioactive material in Belanja, Perak, spent fuel waste could also be kept in an underground mine.

“The Sungai Lembing tin mine is quite suitable for such a long-term storage,” he said, adding that as a Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty signatory, Malaysia was not allowed to process spent nuclear fuel from a reactor.

Both men also agreed that the current third and fourth generation nuclear reactors were safe and reliable, having “evolved” from the unstable first and second generation plants such as the one in Chernobyl.

Abdul Aziz said the Government might be looking into building two 500 MV plants while Dr Sukiman said a 2,000 MV plant was necessary for a 25% energy reserve to attract foreign investments.

TNB plans to upgrade Kenyir plant to 460MW
Muhammed Ahmad Hamdan Published: 2013/06/29
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz2XdIZkp7V

KUALA TERENGGANU: National power utility company Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) plans to upgrade its largest hydro power plant in Kenyir, Kuala Berang, which will raise its electric power generation capacity by 15 per cent to 460 megawatt (MW).

The Sultan Mahmud power plant, which has been in operations for 28 years, is generated by four turbines with each unit able to produce up to 100MW.

TNB power plant general manager Mohd Aidee Hamidin said the turbines have a lifespan of up to 32 years and therefore it plans to upgrade each unit by phases.

"We will start with the oldest turbine first, followed by the rest accordingly," he said during a three-day media familiarisation visit, here, recently.

Mohd Aidee said TNB has engaged with its original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partners from Japan, namely Ebara and Hitachi, to inspect the power plant's turbine and transformer units for the upgrading project.

"The power plant is scheduled for overhaul maintenance services every 10 years, but in terms of upgrading turbines, this will be the first time," he said, adding that the turbines' lifespan will be extended after the upgrade.

Mohd Aidee said TNB will be making an assessment of the cost of upgrade before giving a green light and that TNB might consider replacing the turbines with new ones if the cost is small.

TNB's maximum power generation capacity is currently 10,869MW, involving two types of power plants, namely thermal and hydroelectric, with the latter contributing about 14 per cent of the total power generation.

"TNB has a total power distribution capacity of more than 21,000MW, including power generation from local independent power producers," he said.

Meanwhile, Mohd Aidee said TNB is embarking on a four new hydroelectric power plant projects to maximise its power generation from hydro plants as it aims to produce up to 3,000MW from hydro plants by 2020 from 1,549MW currently.

The four projects are Tekai (130MW) and Ulu Jelai (378MW) in Pahang, Hulu Terengganu (265MW) in Terengganu and Chenderoh 5 (12MW) in Perak.

TNB is also considering to build a hydro power plant in Ninggiri, Kelantan, with a potential capacity of 400MW.


"There will be no more large scale hydro power plant projects after this as we see no other potential areas available.

"New projects for mini hydro power plant will support our efforts to achieve the 3,000MW target by 2020," he added.

12,000MW TNB target
Published: 2013/08/23
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...22TNB/Article/

KUALA LUMPUR: RHB Research expects Tenaga Nasional Bhd's generating capacity to breach the 12,000 megawatt (MW) mark from 9,041 MW currently come 2018, thanks to the 1,000MW coal-fired power plant in Manjung, Perak.

"This takes into account its existing expansion projects, which include the 2x535MW site in Prai, Penang, a 265MW hydro plant in Hulu Terengganu and a 372MW hydro plant in Ulu Jelai, Pahang, as well as the ongoing expansion of Manjung Unit 4 - a 1,000MW coal-fired plant in Perak," it said in a note yesterday.

Tenaga announced on Bursa Malaysia yesterday that it had signed an engineering, procurement and construction contract with a consortium for the recently secured Project 3A to develop the Manjung power plant. Bernama

TNB to build 2 coal-fired power plants
Published: 2013/10/01
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz2gS6D4Mkq

GEORGE TOWN: Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) will build two high-technology 1,000 MW coal-fired power plants in Manjung, Perak to meet the increasing demand for electricity.

Its vice president of generation Zainuddin Ibrahim said the two projects will start soon and will be completed within the next four years.

He said power consumption is expected to increase by five per cent annually and the two projects are in the company's pipeline.

"The two projects in Manjung are mainly for domestic usage and are expected to be completed in 2017," he told reporters after launching the 3rd Annual Asian Sub-Bituminous Coal User Group Conference here today.

Zainuddin said on average, Malaysia consumes about 15,000 to 16,000 MW of power daily, with the figure expected to increase annually.

He said TNB's power generation ratio is 35-40 per cent from coal-fired power plants, 50 per cent from natural gas and the remainder from renewable energy.

"Our aim is to give the most cost-efficient supply of electricity," he said.

However, Zainuddin said, coal is one of Malaysia's most important sources of energy, and over 80 per cent of coal in Malaysia is imported from Indonesia, South Africa and Australia.

"We consume about 42 million tonnes of coal annually and the trend will continue to increase," he said.

He said Asia is the biggest market for coal for power plants, accounting for 67 per cent of worldwide demand.

"Over 7.8 billion tonnes of coal were consumed in the world last year with annual growth of 2.9 per cent," he said.

Over 140 industry professionals from 15 countries including Malaysia, the US, UK, South Korea, Thailand, Indonesia and Russia are participating at the four-day conference starting yesterday. It is hosted by TNB for the first time.-- Bernama

TNB spends RM6 billion for new capex, infrastructure and maintenance annually
Posted on December 6, 2013, Friday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2013/12...ance-annually/

KUALA LUMPUR: Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) is spending at least RM6 billion for new infrastructure, maintenance and capital expenditure (capex) annually to ensure power supply sustainability.

Justification should be made, as the amount is evidently much higher than RM4.6 billion profit the utility giant registered recently for financial year ended Aug 31, 2013.

Of the RM6 billion, TNB is investing about RM3.5 billion to RM4 billion annually for new supply and system improvements on its distribution networks and multi-connection channels.

TNB is also investing between RM2 billion and RM2.5 billion annually for the transmission network enhancement and development.

As a RM99 billion asset-based company, the profit is considered minimal as TNB is only making RM4.6 billion profit, compare with other conglomerates, which are making at least half of their asset values.

The review of the electricity tariff should be seen as essential to TNB to meet rising costs of supply, reinvestment in ageing supply equipment and to continue making improvements in providing reliable and quality electricity supply.

Effective January 1, 2014 the average electricity tariff in Peninsular Malaysia will be increased by 4.99 sen/kWh, or 14.89 per cent, from 33.54 sen/kWh to 38.53 sen/kWh.

The adjustments were based on four components; one of them is the revision of TNB’s base tariff by 2.69 per cent, or 0.90 sen/kWh, from the current average tariff.

The 0.90 sen/kWh only contributes about 18 per cent of the total tariff increase and that is to cater to TNB’s operational costs as well as the required investment in the infrastructure of the electricity supply.

The other three components, which made up the balance of 82 per cent, are a result of an increase in fuel cost, which consists of piped gas, liquefied natural gas (LNG) and coal prices.

TNB will be paying RM15.20 mmBTU (Million Metric British Thermal Units) for piped gas, compared with RM13.70 mmBTU currently.

In March 2009, the government has decided that the gas prices will be reviewed every six months but it was deferred then due to the global financial crisis.

The previous gas price revision was in June 2011 from RM10.70/mmBTU to RM13.70/mmBTU thus the electricity tariff was adjusted accordingly.

On top of that, for LNG, TNB will be paying market price, at RM41.68/mmBTU, while coal prices are hedged at US$87.50/metric tonne, higher from US$85/metric tonne before.

In introducing the new electricity tariff structure, the government ensures that the lower income group is not affected.

The revision will not affect about 70.7 per cent, or 4.6 million domestic customers, which means customers with monthly bills of RM77 and below will not experience any tariff increase.

The rebate from the government for domestic customers using electricity up to RM20 per month is still maintained whereby there are about a million of domestic customers in this category.

TNB has always acknowledged the plight of the lower income group and will definitely ensure that they are not burdened by the tariff review.

Notwithstanding the tariff review, TNB’s rates are still competitive within the region.

At 38.53 sen/kWh, it is much lower compared to Singapore (63.63 sen/kWh) and the Philippines (57.24 sen/kWh) while slightly higher than Indonesia (24.40 sen/kWh) and Thailand (36.88 sen/kWh). — Bernama
