Toshiba and Tenaga to accelerate CCS deployment in Malaysia

13 September 2023

Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation (Toshiba ESS) and TNB Power Generation Sdn Bhd (TNB Genco), a wholly owned subsidiary of Malaysian utility company Tenaga Nasional Berhad, have agreed to further collaborate on the application of CO2 capture technology to fossil-fuelled power plants in Malaysia. The two companies say they plan “to begin full-scale introduction of CCS technology to thermal power plants in Malaysia from September 2023.”

The agreement aims to promote the introduction of CO2 capture equipment for coal fired power stations, such as the relatively new 2 GW Jimah East Power ultrasupercritical coal-fired power plant and other power plants owned by TNB Genco. Specifically, from September 2023, TNB Genco’s engineers will get training and support related to the delivery and operation of CCS equipment at “relevant locations within the Toshiba ESS Group.”
