Consultancy services for life extension of 400 MW Kenyir station in Malaysia

Malaysia’s state-owned power utility, Tenaga Nasional Berhad Resources (TNB), invites bids by 10 June for engineering consultancy services for the life extension of the 400 MW Sultan Mahmud/ Kenyir hydropower station. Located on the river Kenyir in Terengganu, a northeastern state of Peninsula Malaysia, the multipurpose scheme, which is designed for hydropower and flood mitigation, entered into operation in 1985.

Its 150 m-high rockfill dam impounds the Kenyir Lake, with a storage capacity of 13 600 x106 m3. The plant has been temporarily shut down since late February following heavy rain, which resulted in a landslide causing the collapse of a 132 kV transmission tower, which supplies electricity to the national grid. Remedial measures are underway to restore its operations including maintenance of power generating assets, as well as an assessment of the impact of the incident on the dam structure. TNB is also working with the Public Works Department to monitor the slope condition, including five landslide locations near the site.
