KUALA LUMPUR: FGV Holdings Bhd has installed a biogas power plant at its Triang palm oil mill in Bera, Pahang – the company’s biggest renewable energy biogas power plant to date.
In a statement, it said the plant has an installed capacity of 2.4 megawatts (MW).
“FGV’s Triang biogas power plant is successfully commissioned and fully operational after receiving the Feed-in-Tariff Completion Date from the Malaysia Sustainable Energy Development Authority (Seda) on Oct 20,2020, ” it said.
Through Seda, FGV secures a quota for 2.0MW of export capacity to Tenaga Nasional Bhd’s (TNB) national grid for distribution to 15,000 homes in Felda Triang, Felda Sebertak, Felda Purun, Felda Bukit Kepayang and Felda Tementi, which are located within a 30km radius from the biogas power plant.
Group chief executive officer Datuk Haris Fadzilah Hassan said FGV’s Triang biogas power plant acted as an alternative form of green energy provider for TNB, which reduces the risk of outage to ensure a better and steadier stream of electricity. — Bernama
