TNB Supports Malaysia Achieving Net Zero with Large Scale Floating Solar


Motivated by the success of its floating solar pilot project in the ash pond of the Stesen Janakuasa Sultan Azlan Shah (SJSAS) in Manjung, Perak, Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) is embarking on HHFS Photovoltaic (PV) projects under National Energy Transition Roadmap (NETR) at its hydro dam reservoirs.

"The pilot project in SJSAS was a remarkable success. We utilised the water's surface area. As the country moves towards a low-carbon future and environmental sustainability, TNB, through TNB Power Generation Sdn Bhd (TNB Genco), is planning to build 2500 Megawatt (MW) of HHFS. This responsible Energy Transition initiative offers sustainable energy solutions with positive ecological impacts," said TNB President and Chief Executive Officer Dato' Seri Ir. Baharin Din.

He explained that by utilising bodies of water for solar installations, TNB can conserve land usage, preserve land natural habitats, and reduce water evaporation. Unlike traditional thermal power plants, floating solar farms do not have water or air discharges that could negatively impact water or air quality. Hence, it minimises pollution and supports biodiversity with minimal disruption to the aquatic ecosystems.
