This project involves the construction and operation of a 12.5 MW biomass energy power plant.
Located in Teluk Intan, the plant will use Empty Fruit Bunches (EFB) as the primary fuel for biomass power generation.
The plant requires 900 tonnes per day of shredder EFB in order to generate 12.5 MW gross power and will export 10 MW net to the utility grid. Power is transmitted over 9 km of underground 11 kV cable.
The project also incorporates an anaerobic digestion plant to generate biogas from the EFB process effluent, which is used to heat feed water.
