|Brunei keen to buy power from Lawas, Limbang plants|
|LAWAS – Brunei has offered to purchase power to be generated by the proposed hydroelectric plants to be set up in Limbang and Lawas, Sarawak.
Second Minister of Planning and Management Awang Tengah Ali Hasan said while the actual starting date for the projects have yet to be fixed, Brunei had already showed keen interest in the power plants.
“We already have an agreement with Brunei to supply 100MW and they have agreed to upgrade their transmission lines. In fact they (Brunei) want us to speed up the (implementation of the) project,” he told reporters last night after launching the Malaysian Islamic Welfare Organisation Lawas Branch’s family night.
The Limbang project is estimated to generate 245MW and Lawas the remaining 100MW. — Bernama
