Andritz, as part of a consortium, has been contracted by TNBPG Hydro Nenggiri Sdn. Bhd to supply the complete electro- and hydro-mechanical equipment for the new Nenggiri hydroelectric project in Kelantan, the northeastern state of the Malay Peninsula.
Andritz’s contract has been valued at more than €100 million, and commissioning has been scheduled for mid 2026. The scope of supply of the consortium includes two Francis turbine generating units including complete mechanical and electrical balance of plant and hydro-mechanical equipment as well as the high voltage switchyard.
Once completed, the Nenggiri project will provide 300MW of peak load coverage to significantly stabilize the national power grid. Flood mitigation benefits for the downstream areas are another important target of the hydropower station.
Nenggiri is one of several government-approved projects to meet the growing energy demand of Malaysia and to increase the share of renewable energy in its energy mix to 40% by 2035.
