IPOH: Perak is set to have its first ever environment-friendly mini-hydro plant to generate electricity.
Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir said the RM10mil plant could generate up to 10MW of electricity and the project was expected to take off soon.
“It is capable of generating enough electricity to support a small town,” he said.
Dr Zambry had earlier witnessed the signing of the memorandum of agreement between Perak Hydrorenewable Energy Corporation Sdn Bhd chairman Datuk Wan Mohammad Khair-Il Anuar Wan Ahmad, China Science and Technology International Supply Corporation board chairman Liang Bing and Bumi International Energy Sdn Bhd executive director Dzahir Jamudin yesterday.
“We will also be looking into the possibility of expanding the plant to generate up to 30MW,” he added.
He said power would be generated through technology that uses streaming water current, adding that it was in line with the state’s stance to support and adopt the National Green Technology Policy.
