Safety Precautions During This General Election https://www.tnb.com.my/announcements/safety-precautions-during-this-general-election1

TNB would like to advise all political parties not to place flags or flag poles near any electrical installations such as transmission towers, electrical poles, feeder pillars, substations, concrete electrical poles and overhead lines. It is a dangerous activity that could potentially cause electric shocks and/or flashovers.

A flashover is a high-voltage electric short circuit that occurs through the air when an object gets too close to the conductors or due to overload. It may lead to electrical accidents that damage properties and possible loss of lives.

“We seek cooperation from all parties not to place party flags or any campaign materials under or/and near any electrical installations to avoid accidents.” said Chief Corporate Officer Datuk Wira Roslan Ab. Rahman. He also reminded the public of the danger of carrying or placing flag bearing bamboo poles under and/or near any electrical installations as this may also cause electric shock to those nearby.

The public is advised to practice the following safety tips :

  • Do not place flag poles, or any placards under high voltage overhead lines to avoid any untoward incidents.
  • It is not advisable to carry beams, bars or poles bearing flags underneath high voltage overhead lines.
  • Trespassing in the vicinity of transmission towers/substations is strictly prohibited.

KeTTHA and TNB disclaim any relations with COINZER https://www.tnb.com.my/announcements/kettha-and-tnb-disclaim-any-relations-with-coinzer

The Ministry of Energy, Green Technology, and Water (KeTTHA) and Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) would like to advise members of the public that the two are not affiliated or in any way connected with a cryptocurrency platform, called Coinzer.

3rd iCON Hackathon : Blockchain – Tokenization of Employee Reward System https://www.tnb.com.my/announcements/3rd-icon-hackathon-blockchain-tokenization-of-employee-reward-system

ICT Innovation Department is kickstarting 2018 by hosting its 3rd iCON Hackathon series event with the theme “Blockchain – Tokenization of Employee Reward System”.

A blockchain is a decentralized, distributed and incorruptible digital ledger that is used to record transactions across many computers. In simple terms it’s a:

  • Distributed network of computers (nodes)
  • where each node contains a chain-of-blocks
  • where each block contains a ledger with a list of transactions
  • where each transaction is incorruptible (i.e. cryptographically secure)
  • linked to the previous transactions for the resource it is representing.

Blockchain is changing the way people around the world transact with each other. This incredibly far-reaching technology is still in its infancy, yet it has already changed the dynamics that exist between buyers and sellers of goods and services. It has also revised the way people interact and engage with government agencies, as well as fortified the authentication of transactions of legal entities, organizations and nations. Blockchain combines the openness of the internet with the security of cryptography to produce a faster, safer way to verify key information by ensuring safety, transparency and trust.

Important dates for the event are as below:-

  • Closing date for registration : 16th March 2018
  • Briefing Day : 19th March 2018
  • Pitching Day : 26th March 2018
