TNB Renewables and TNB Research have signed a Letter of Intent with SolarDuck and Hydro

This signing marks the beginning of a partnership to advance solar energy solutions in Malaysia
and Southeast Asia

  • SolarDuck will install a 780kW offshore floating solar (OFS) plant off the coast of
    Tioman island in Malaysia as a research project to assess technical and economic
    feasibility of OFS in Malaysia.
  • Installation targeted to be completed by 2025.
  • New distributed energy generation methods like OFS will provide additional pathway
    for TNB to diversify its RE portfolio and achieve its net zero aspiration.
  • Hydro contributes with engineering and production of the aluminium profiles which the
    solar plant is constructed from.
  • Tioman island is the starting point of a renewable future for Malaysia, opening a large
    potential for OFS in the entire region as OFS is set to become the most affordable
    marine energy technology by 2030.
