Malaysian President Saji Raghavan said that all major players had submitted bids for Tenaga plant in Hulu Terengganu, located north of the Kenyir dam in Kuala Berang.
We are actively pursuing the Hulu Terengganu project, Saji said.
On top of that, we are keen to pursue any power plant projects that the government wants to do, whether to renew older plants or build new ones, Saji said.
Saji continued that there could be opportunities in the renewal of some older coal or gas fired plants in the country to meet future energy needs.
