KUALA LUMPUR: Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) assures that the electricity supply in this country is reliable and stable because supply disruptions was restored quickly.

TNB president and chief executive officer Datuk Baharin Din said the assurance was proven when power in several areas in Peninsular Malaysia on Wednesday (July 27) afternoon was quickly restored by TNB's technical team following a blackout.

Apart from that, he said the national grid itself has smart features that facilitate the work of tracing and restoring supply.

"We have been able to solve the problem of disruption in a reasonable period, and there are even areas that recovered within 20 minutes after the supply was cut off.

"The restoration of supply could be implemented efficiently as a result of TNB's continuous investment in modernising the grid including digitising it so that the supply network is more stable, flexible and consistent," he said in a statement on Wednesday..

TNB said the electricity supply disruption which occurred in several areas in Peninsular Malaysia from 12.39pm this afternoon was caused by equipment failure at Yong Peng North main input substation (PMU) in Yong Peng, Johor.

Referring to the incident, Baharin said the PMU breakdown was an isolated case and did not involve any damage and was fully operational.

"Our ability to restore supply today is due to TNB's large and continuous investment to upgrade the system with the support of the Energy Commission (ST) and the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources," he said.

Baharin also apologised to all users involved in the supply disruption and said he would conduct a detailed investigation with ST to take preventive measures and improvement efforts. - Bernama
