Under the agreement, the joint venture will transport 1.5 million tpy of thermal coal for ten years using a dedicated panamax vessel. Coal will be sourced from Indonesia, Australia or South Africa.

TNB has total generating capacity of 11 GW, making It one of the largest generators in southeast Asia. It is currently development Project 3A – a 1 GW coal-fired power plant that will use Hitachi’s ultra-supercritical boiler technology and be located on TNB’s existing Manjung power complex.
