INNIO has signed a memorandum of understanding with Concord Renewable Energy SDN BHD (Concord Group) to partner in building four power plants across Malaysia fueled by palm oil wastes.
Each plant is expected to operate two Type 4 Jenbacher biogas engines, collectively delivering more than 8 MW of power to the grid. INNIO will also supply long-term servicing for the engines.
The project emphasizes Malaysia’s efforts to achieve its COP26 commitments in moving away from fossil fuels and increasing renewable energy projects. The power plants, built in various parts of Malaysia, will deliver sustainable power to the grid while capturing methane.
“INNIO has more than 500 Jenbacher engines currently operating on biogas and deploying about 1 GW in the ASEAN region,” said Carsten Dommermuth, vice president and general manager of APAC at INNIO Jenbacher. “Our Jenbacher Type 4 biogas engine fleet delivers reliable and fuel-efficient heat and power, where the additional surplus energy is fed into the power grid as a renewable, dispatchable power source. We are pleased to partner with the Concord Group to provide technology that helps Malaysia meet its climate goals.”
